Admission free, registration not required

DOUBLE ACE explores the identity of a pair of twin boys Afeeq and Azeeq. Charming with twice the humour, Afeeq and Azeeq have been performing jokes and songs for their mother’s (handphone) camera since they were toddlers. This live performance piece inspired by anecdotes of everyday life in their flat in Lengkok Bahru. It draws on the twins’ natural comedic disposition and bountiful energy, exploring a young Malay family’s home filled with a sense of humour, grounded by the strength of faith and their parents’ love. Decked out in their Sunday best, they invite the audience to sit with them and wonder about the future.
