In celebration of the Sejarah Melayu or the Malay Annals as it is more widely known, we  probe and delve into the famous Malay classical text in a series of talks, debate and performances. Presented by The Arts House in collaboration with writer and academic Dr Azhar Ibrahim from the National University of Singapore Department of Malay Studies, this event presents the Malay Annals in competing, creative and critical spaces of appreciation.  Occurring over a weekend, the event will kick off with an introductory lecture, followed by performances and recitations inspired by the text’s major themes. It will conclude with a trial debate, where historical arbitration demands a generational imagination of history, ethics and critiques.
