Current Program

The Red Chador: In Memoriam

An exhibition on loss and remembering
by Anida Yoeu Ali
Java Creative Café Independence Monument
Showing until September 21 2018

The Red Chador has been missing since her last appearance in Palestine during her tour of several countries including France, Hong Kong, Malaysia and the U.S., among others.  Last seen in her trademark red sequined chador, her disappearance comes at a particularly charged political moment where world-wide racial profiling, hate and violence against Muslims have increased. Despite the loss, The Red Chador has become a highly visible leader in an era of heightened Islamophobia.

On April 6, 2018 Ali publicly announced the death of The Red Chador at the hands of unnamed airline officials. Ali has also launched RedChadorIsDead.com, a “digital altar” that will chronicle 99 moments of audience experiences with the Red Chador.

Abused daily by demi-gods, the demon Akeang Khamaso begs for justice from his lord Preah Eysor. Bestowed with a magic finger that destroys all it points at, the victim quickly becomes the abuser and wreaks havoc in the palaces of heaven. Featuring stellar dancers dressed in fanciful costumes, The Lives of Giants is a contemporary meditation on bullying, cycles of violence, and the responsibilities of wielding power, performed by the globally acclaimed Sophiline Arts Ensemble.
