People say life is like a dream,
She says a dream is like life,
There is joy and celebration,
There is sorrow and grief,
When awaken from a dream, she has come to the end of life…

Ang Tau Mui, a toilet cleaner, has been idolizing Lin Dai since young. As a working-class woman, she has always yearned to shine on stage just as Lin Dai. Ang Tau Mui has been striving in the tangible reality; from one place to the other, running and searching, speaking and confiding with people and herself. While traversing between reality and dream, she returns to her childhood house, rests in a kopitiam, catches a movie in a cinema, rides on the mini bus, and finally, she stops at an old temple. Trailing after Lin Dai’s songs, her captivating yet poignant story has come to an end….
A Modern Woman Called Ang Tau Mui is an English classic play written by Leow Puay Tin. Director Loh Kok Man has adapted the play in both Mandarin and Cantonese since 2001. In year 2011, he was invited to stage the play in Macau City Fringe Festival. This year, a brand new collaboration has given rise to the role of Ang Tau Mui being shared between two artists; Tammi Tam and Thian Siew Kim. This monologue play will be a new version of the timely theatrical classic, a work to reveal a deconstruction of virtual reality and fantasy. With the integration of video art by Fairuz Sulaiman and costume design by Michell Yong, the play is set to narrate and elaborate the intriguing life of this modern woman.
