ALICE IN THE ANTIPATHIES

by Sasi Victoire

A magical transformative story of migration, a curious adventure into another world, a journey to a tender sense of place.

Alice in the Antipathies is the story of Asha, a second-generation Indian diaspora born in Malaysia, who is unable to conform to belong in her cultural setting. In the 1970’s, during a climate welcoming immigration and multiculturalism, Asha moves to Australia to study and eventually settle. Encountering life’s challenges as wife and mother, Asha chooses art as a solace to discover herself and she finds the text of Alice in Wonderland to help find a voice, and through using another’s voice she gains her own.

Sasi Victoire‘s Alice in the Antipathies is a cross and intra-cultural work with Malayalam and Bahasa Malaysia languages. It takes audiences on a unique journey of migration, with the imaginary Alice, of Alice in Wonderland to navigate a challenging voyage through romance, love, loss and reconciliation.
