Ikan Girl was highly praised as an original contemporary Singaporean work that incorporated movement vocabulary from Malay dance, bharatanatyam and contemporary dance genres and featured new music of a unique compositional style that imbues the flavour of traditional Malay music with captivating sound colours.
