The night will be a showcase of two performance-happenings. First, there will be Wayang Lampu, an exploration of shadow, light, and hue with reflections and diffractions on histories and stories by theatre activist Fahmi Fadzil accompanied by Aziz Ali. Proceeding that a proto happening entitled Leave Me Alone encasing Nyoba dancer Caecar Chong and returning installation artist Teoh Shaw Gie (recent work seen in Ka-Si-Pe-Cah) along with musicians from the old Moxuan unit, Yong Yen Sin and Tham Kar Mun.
Born, bred and schooled in Malaysia and trained as an architect in Australia, Caecar Chong Chung Yong has chosen to apply his skill and knowledge not conventionally on brickwork and steel structures, but experimentally with different art media and formats. Closely associated with the establishment and direction of Space Spirit Studio, Caecar champions the use of various media across art disciplines as diverse as the visual arts, performing arts and even floral design to express the spirit of space. This grants a new lease of life to the classic ideological maxim that architecture is more than just about building buildings.
Teoh Shaw Gie
Born in Penang (Malaysia) on 1976. Graduated from Accademia di Belle Arte di Firenze (Italy), faculty of Painting. Lives and works in Penang (Malaysia)
