Formed in 2004 with the intention of providing artistic solutions, TerryandTheCuz has since established itself as a company with a truly global appeal. We have designed, written, directed and created work for theatre, dance, puppetry and art installations for companies, governments, festivals and artists across Asia, Europe and Australia.
We have worked on critically acclaimed projects such as ‘20 Years of the Pants’ and ‘Kissy Kissy’, for the Adelaide International Fringe Festival, ‘Citrawarna, Colours of Malaysia Month Launch 2007 – 2009’ for the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, ‘The Puppet Black Box Theatre’ for the 2007 Prague Quadrennial Design Festival, ‘Avast’, ‘Avast 2: The Welshman Cometh’ and ‘Thyestes’ for the Malthouse Theatre, ‘Act 3’ and ‘Room 222’ for the Australian Pavilion at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai. ‘Vs Macbeth’ for the Sydney Theatre Company, ‘Bali Agung’ for Taman Safari Indonesia, ‘They Called Him Mr Glamour’ for Belvoir Street Theatre and ‘Doku Rai’ for The Black Lung Theatre and Whaling Firm.
Since 2010 TerryandTheCuz have written, designed and produced ‘My Lingam Speaks’, ‘Klue,Doh!’, ‘The Bee Project’, ‘Flatland; An Adaptation in Dance’ and have recently completed the successful staging of ‘Welcome2Flatland’ an Interactive Public Art Installation inspired by the work in dance. We are currently working on the international tour of ‘The Bee Project’, a contemporary Malaysian adaptation of Hamlet, ‘UnderKL’ a graphic novel/radio drama and ‘SK!N’ a new work in contemporary dance, which was presented as a work in development at the 2015 George Town Festival in Penang, Malaysia. SK!N will premiere in Kuala Lumpur in August 2016.
TerryandTheCuz strives to write, create and design intelligent, humorous, passionate, visceral performance art that reflects and engages with our changing society, and to attract newer and more diverse audiences to the arts. We seek to constantly develop and extend our collaborative performance-making practice with artists both local and abroad, to find new forms, voices and narratives in all our endeavours.
