About the speaker
Formed in 2004 TerryandTheCuz has since established itself as a company with a truly global appeal. We have written, directed, created and designed work for theatre, dance, puppetry and art installations for artists, companies, governments and festivals across Asia, Europe, Australia and The Americas. Since 2010 we have written, directed, designed and produced ‘My Lingam Speaks’, ‘Klue,Doh!’, ‘The Bee Project’, ‘Flatland; an Adaptation in Dance’, ‘Welcome2Flatland’ an Interactive Public Art Installation, ‘SK!N’ a work in contemporary performance based on true stories about Human Trafficking, ‘Citrawarna, Colours of Malaysia 2017’ for the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, ‘Thicker Than Water’ and ‘MADE IN AMERICA’ which premiered Off-Broadway at The Public Theater, New York City.
We are currently working on the Adelaide Festival Centre’s commission of ‘LIGHT’ and the Off-Broadway season of ‘SPLIT’, both new works in theatre, a contemporary Malaysian adaptation of Hamlet; a graphic novel/augmented reality project titled ‘UnderKL’, the European tour of ‘SK!N’, an immersive theatrical experience in collaboration with The KONEX Cultural City in Buenos Aires and are currently in discussions to write, produce and direct a television series which explores the themes of modern day romance thru the prism of love, race and gender.
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.
Our purpose is to create an environment that allows you to focus on what’s really important - getting your work done and meeting interesting people.
More than a turn-key office, we are in the business of realizing businesses by offering professional advice, training and investor networking when you need it.
Conceived with a passion for specialty coffee, we are roasters, green bean distributors, trainers and consultants.
As Asia’s one-stop centre for specialty coffee, we aim to assist the ever-expanding coffee industry and spread coffee culture through relationships and education.
We hunt and handpick all our coffee beans and we personally get to know all the farmers at origin, involving ourselves in as many growing, blending and roasting processes possible through Project Origin (2015 World Barista Champion Sasa Sestic’s green bean trading organization). By understanding how the best quality coffees are grown at their origins, we are able provide you the knowledge and skills with humble yet inspiring stories woven into them.
Sustainable relationships with the farmers is the foundation of our philosophy. We take pride and care in ensuring that every green bean is bought directly from quality committed farmers at a more than fair rate. Through our commitment with Chapola Project, we improve the quality of life, as well as refine and build the production infrastructure of farmers.
From Seed to Cup, We aim to help you understand the beautiful art and science of coffee.

SK!N is the boundary of our bodies. It is the membrane that helps us distinguish what is us from what is not us. It is the un-crossable border between our bodies and the other’s alien body. Paradoxically, in the moment of contact between two bodies, when we attempt to go beyond our borders we are affronted by a stronger affirmation of our own identity.
SK!N is about migration and how, when and why we are allowed to freely cross borders whilst others have their movements restricted. It is about the lengths that people go to in order to survive or better their lives. It is about the dehumanizing trade of people: it’s winners and losers. It is about how we, the privileged, actively and passively, consciously and subconsciously, benefit from and then distance ourselves from the plight of others.
By coming into contact with the other, by coming face-to-face with the other, our identities are forged and given meaning. With this work, we try to bring the audience into contact with the other so that they better confront themselves. This has been our process as much as we hope it is the audiences’. We do this in order for us to better understand what we share and what we don’t share, and ultimately whether those differences are justified.
