In conjunction with International Dance Day, 29th April 2014
My first solo performance in Malaysia, invited by Chong Keat Aun to perform at his venue, a beautiful antique and quaint Chinese Art House on Jalan Petaling, Kuala Lumpur. Thank you Keat Aun for preparing such a beautiful venue for the show. Very grateful.
I explored my first Odissi abhinaya dance piece using the guitar played by musician and singer Syd Johann as an exploration to present facial expressions and moods with no body movements as the finale dance item as well as at the introduction as an improvisation with Syd Johann on the guitar before going into my Odissi repertoire. Thank you for doing this Johann. Rehearsals were at Toccatta Studios in SS2. Thank you Chor Guan.
Thank you to Jeffrey Leong that helped me with the sound who I would later work with as my musician with Theban Arumugam in a dance and music collaboration at The KuAsh Theatre, Kuala Lumpur.
Thank you to everyone including friends whom I had not seen since school who came.
SOLD OUT FULL HOUSE performance.
