Main Wayang: Hikayat Sang Kancil
‘Wayang kulit’ for the digital age!

Programme Description

“Main Wayang : Hikayat Sang Kancil” is a performance docudrama that exposes the ‘truth’ behind a few popular Malaysian folklore in reference to the Sang Kancil character. The concept of “main” or play is seen through the clever and creative use of combining different mediums in this performance. It will bring together video animation, live acting, VJ-ing, puppetry and live music.

“Main Wayang” is an on-going project that explores story-telling through experiments in the convergence of mediums. It is an experimentation of new methods for the creation of live performance that primarily incorporates digital and analog techniques.
