Random Chapters to premier in Penang, Malaysia - 5.0 out of 5 based on 1 ratings 1 user reviews

Asian contemporary dance company, Maya Dance Theatre is all set to premier its touring production, Random Chapters, in Penang, Malaysia from 14-15 August 2015; 8pm at Penang Performing Arts Centre.

Random Chapters is a full-length contemporary dance production which lends a voice to individuals. Each one reveals their emotions experienced through an array of different circumstances.

Like the many chapters in a book, dancers will pass through different moments in each chapter, suggesting stories through movements to connect with audiences. Each narrative thread is expressed through an Asian aesthetic body filled with intercultural dynamism.

Random Chapters was created almost a year ago through a unique collaboration between Maya Dance Theatre and several dance makers from Southeast Asia and beyond. They are: Danang Pamungkas (Indonesia), Kavitha Krishnan (Singapore), Shahrin Johry (Singapore) and Raymond Liew (Germany/Malaysia); as well as award winning choreographer, Janis Brenner (USA) and Gil Kerer (Israel).

Random Chapters has premiered in Indonesia, Thailand and recently USA, and will debut in London, UK in November 2015.

Penang, Malaysia marks the debut of Random Chapters in Malaysia.

The presentation of Random Chapters is made possible through the support of Apsara Asia, Singai Tamil Sangam and penangpac.
