Double Bill: Aragang and The Choice
ARAGANG: Nunuk means fig tree, while Ragang (Aragang) means red. According to Dusun beliefs, Nunuk Ragang is a sacred place and the birthplace of their ancestors in Sabah. Its large and red shape has further highlighted the prowess and existence of the tree. This dance is an abstract impression of the Dusun beliefs and the Nunuk Ragang.
THE CHOICE: The Choice touches upon the topic of women empowerment and revolves around the theme of women’s independence in achieving success in life. Life is like unraveling a multiple-choice question. Family or career; no matter what choice a woman makes, it will never be perfect. The Choice is inspired by the daily life gestures, movements, and household objects to find women’s choices in life.
