Contemporary dance by Raymond Liew Jin Pin

Raymond Liew Jin Pin, the Hamburg-based Malaysian contemporary choreographer, brings the full length piece which was created during the K3 Tanzplan Residency Program at Kampnagel Hamburg in 2019 finally for the World Premiere home to Kuala Lumpur.  
In search of a new village and a contemporary zone, Raymond Liew Jin Pin delved in Kampung Baru into the field of traditional Malay, Chinese and Indian dance movements.
He allows himself, together with the other three dancers to reinterpret his cultural roots and embody his biography, to merge old and new, east and west, tradition and modernity. And at the end, most of it disassembled, the space of the party, the heat, the song, are still there, waiting for you to revisit. 

Physical dance premiere performed by Jascha Viehstädt, Bianca Pulungan, Isabella Boldt and Raymond Liew Jin Pin, all now based in Germany, on the music composed by Malaysian composer Ng Chor Guan.
