Biar Pete de Besuara is an exhibition by Bah Saluji, a writer and illustrator of two Orang Asli children’s books. The exhibition title is Semai for ‘Let the Maps Speak’.

According to the exhibition: “If an Orang Asli map had a voice, it would tell the story of a peaceful people living for countless generations in harmony with the rainforest.”

Bah Saluji and his vibrant watercolour paintings showcase that idyllic life – but also today’s harsh reality of the rampant encroachment of Orang Asli customary land. This exhibition invites us to reflect on our own relationship with the land and the urgent need for greater respect for indigenous rights.

Entry to the exhibition is free so what else are you waiting for?

10. Teater Purbawara: Batu Belah (Malay Theatre) @ Dewan Tunku Abdul Rahman, MaTIC (11 – 13 Aug / Friday – Sunday, 8.45 pm, 2.45 pm)

‘Batu Belah’ is indeed etched in history. It tells the story of a family with nothing to their name. The father passed away, and the mother, upset, fled until she was swallowed by a stone. All of this happened because the family didn’t have enough.

But you know what? Things turned around in a surprising way. The younger and older siblings who were left alone ended up being taken care of by a kind grandma in a village called Kerayong. They also had the good luck of a special rooster that helped them. This rooster eventually helped someone become a young king who married a beautiful princess.

In our temporary world, sometimes people feel jealous and greedy, and this causes problems in our communities. But remember, even in tough times, there can be good things waiting for us. ‘Batu Belah’ wants kids, teenagers, families, and leaders to learn from this story of sadness and happiness.
