LAPAR LAB will choreograph a dance with a theme of the old Chinese who immigrated from China to Malaysia, with a very authentic Chinese Hakka song. Read more: http://www.laparlab.com/

Dancing in Place at Rimbun Dahan, 7-8 August 2010
Up a tree. In a sculpture. Underwater. Underground.
Come and experience contemporary dance as you've never seen it before!
Saturday & Sunday, 7-8 August 2010
Rimbun Dahan, Km. 27 Jalan Kuang, Kuang, 48050, Selangor.
For detailed program information, see www.rimbundahan.org
In the midst of a 14-acre indigenous Malaysian garden, and in the shade of contemporary and traditional architecture, Malaysian and international choreographers will present a collection of site-specific contemporary dance works for Dancing in Place.
Come and be entranced by the magic of site-specific performances. The audience will move through the landscape to view different dance works in unusual situations. The weather, the quality of light, the mood of the crowd, the sound of birds singing – all these shape the experience of dance as a site-specific practice.As Rimbun Dahan is a private arts centre not generally open to the general public, this is also an unusual opportunity to experience all the delights Rimbun Dahan has to offer, including the medicinal herb garden, contemporary architecture by Hijjas Kasturi, relocated and refurbished traditional houses from Perak and Penang, and indoor and outdoor visual art by local and international artists.
Performers at Dancing in Place this year will include Kristine Nilsen Oma (Norway), Elysa Wendi (Singapore), Donna Miranda (Philippines) and Scarlet Yu (Hong Kong), as well as up to ten choreographers from Malaysia including Rathimalar Govindarajoo, Gan Chih Pei, Nurulakmal Abdul Wahid, Muhaini Ahmad, Leng Poh Gee, Fahmi Fadzil and January Low.
Remember to bring your own water, mosquito repellent, light clothing and comfortable footwear. Refreshments will be provided, but you can bring your own picnic too!
