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.


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.


Alice in the Antipathies was originally produced by JUTE Theatre Company, Masakini Theatre Company and Dr Sasi Victoire premiering at the Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on September 26, 2019 with and Australian premiere at the Cairns Performing Arts Centre on Octover 5, 2019.
