Rithaudin Abdul Kadir

(University of Malaya) Has a rich background of traditional dance, incorporating modern techniques within his work. From Sandakan, Sabah, his own Suluk ethnicity is imprinted in his movement. In 19 years of dancing in the local and international dance scene, Rithaudin is still searching for and developing ways of telling the stories of traditional ethnicities within Malaysia. He believes the audience should have the space to understand any dance they see – ‘Edutainment’. 6 years at MAPFest, site-specificity is his forte.
