Featuring two of Singapore's Orang Laut / Orang Pulau descendants whose families lived on Pulau Semakau and Pulau Sudong, this session explores the mistaken identities and loss of cultural heritage of Firdaus Sani and Asnida Daud.
During this hour, the performers will relay their family's anecdotes through poetry readings and musical performances to shed light on the plight of the island natives and their descendants upon displacement. Sharing the stage with Firdaus and Asnida are local fishermen who will display the delicate and intricate methods of crafting fishing gear.
Ending this session is a 15 mins Q&A with the audience.
