Artist

Hasyimah Harith is a Malay-Muslim female artist that has been trained in Malay folk dance. She performs, choreographs and teaches traditional Malay dance repertoires. Using her body as the starting point, Hasyimah works with the Malay identity and female sexuality, as a way to reclaim the agency over her body. Her working method involves strategies such as vulnerability, pleasure and confession. She advocates for a community-based practice that calls attention to co-authorship and solidarity at the heart of relationships.
