Tales of Unrest: Arsat (adapted from 'The Lagoon') / One Day More (adapted from 'To-Morrow')


(Arsat) Amidst the political turmoil of 1890’s Malaysia, a noble warrior must choose between fraternal loyalty and his love for a woman. ARSAT weaves the art of storytelling, traditional Malaysian dance, and live drumming into a theatrical experience about two men whose relationship is at an impasse – their futures uncertain until they can resolve their pasts.

(One Day More) A woman, held in bondage by a tyrannical father, finds solace in her eccentric neighbor’s mad hope for the return of his prodigal son. The son’s arrival shatters her illusion of romance, cultivated by the father, when the son refuses to be bound by family, property, obligation, relationship, and responsibility.
