'Ulek Mayang' (one of the oldest art forms in Malaysia) is a traditional Malay folk dance/tale, treasured by Malaysians. Synergizing the artistry of air artists VIVA Circus and musicians HANDS Percussion in narrating excerpts of this story not only promises a very interesting collaboration but will present visuals that audiences will find captivating.
Our first engagement with VIVA was during the 16th Hua Zong Literary Awards in 2022. SAKTI is our first full collaboration where we sought to merge our art forms to create a unique interpretation of this captivating folktale. It will be performed across the stage through aerial acrobatics and accompanied by contemporary music with drums, percussion, gamelan and other musical instruments.
Look forward to our drummers in a new challenge to express their artistry through expertly choreographed aerial acrobatics (using specialist fabrics) accompanied by new and rearranged Malay song compositions.
