DNA REUNION PROJECT

presented by DPAC


The d'Next Artist Project is a project launched by the DPAC in 2014 to promote a new generation of artists. It hopes to provide a free platform for local emerging artists to create and perform. In contrast to previous years, DPAC brought together the first five d'NA participants this year to develop a new project called “d'Next Artist Reunion Project (DNA Reunion Project)”. It continues to support local artists while further expanding and enhancing the Malaysian art industry and is committed to creating a Humanities community.


This year, the “DNA Reunion Project” team elaborately selected five works. In addition to the integration of traditional and modern elements, the works deconstructed various issues related to human nature and self-resonance. DPAC also hopes to use this program to bring a richer art space to the local area and allow the audience to see the beauty in the madness of performing arts. The DNA Reunion Project will be held at the DPAC Theater, Black Box and the White Sand Cafe from 26 to 29 April, at 8:00pm respectively.

Choreography by Kenny Shim and Collective

Costume by Man Chien
Multimedia by Wee Jia Foong

A performance of three (3) contemporary dance works – two (2) of which are newly crafted; Winged Wolves and the Bamboo Mew & Pieces of Three Movements and one (1) a re-stage; Rite.Winged Wolves and the Bamboo Mew, an original choreography by Kenny Shim. Winged Wolves and the Bamboo Mew initiates it’s creative process by using Frühlings Erwachen; Spring Awakening, as a catalyst. 

Spring Awakening is Frank Wedekind’s most popular play and one of seminal dramatic works of late 19th century literature. It depicts the struggles of a group of pubertal adolescents trying to come to terms with their burgeoning sexual desires. The subtitle of the play reads ‘Eine Kindertragödie’ (‘A children’s tragedy’). The tragedy of the adolescents depicted in the play lies in the fact that they are left alone with their questions, their doubts, their longings and their feelings of guilt by their parents and teachers, in some cases with fatal consequences. Wedekind attacks the disciplinarian and prudish society of his day, which is depicted as doing considerable harm with its attempt to cover up and suppress sexual desires. 

Pieces of Three Movements, an original choreography by Kenny Shim & Lee Jia-Xi. Multimedia by Wee Jia Foong. This piece is a collaborative project between the MEDIA art and DANCE art. The core explore is to test the visual state of being. The embodiment of what is seen, sight and the poetics of the screen and body.Rite, a re-stage choreography by Kenny Shim. Rite is a piece created to challenge the idea of masculinity. The piece itself is framed within the idea of rite of passage.

AMOK
presented by Alliance Française

One night in March 1912, on the deck of a ship dashing towards Europe. While other passengers laugh, have fun and dance, a man shies away. He bears a secret that has become too heavy for him and will unburden himself from it in the dark. This young doctor is running away from Malaysia where he has worked for five years, in the middle of the jungle, until a mysterious woman came to ask for help ...

A feverish tale of a race against death where passion mingles with madness, where the obsession over a woman is similar to the amok, this sudden fit of murderous rampage.

The French Festival 2018 presents -exclusively in Malaysia- this play adapted from Stefan Zweig's short story;  Alexis Moncorgé’s brilliant interpretation earned him the Molière (French national theatre award) 2016 for Best Male Newcomer.

[Play in French with English subtitles]

Une nuit de mars 1912, sur le pont d’un navire qui file vers l’Europe ; pendant que les autres passagers rient, s’amusent et dansent, un homme se tient à l’écart. Il a un secret trop lourd à porter, il s’en délivre en confidences à la faveur de l’obscurité. Ce jeune médecin fuit la Malaisie où il a exercé cinq ans durant, au milieu de la jungle, jusqu’au jour où une mystérieuse femme vient son assistance...

Récit fiévreux d’une course contre la mort où la passion se confond à la folie, où l’obsession pour une femme ressemble à l’amok, cette soudaine crise de folie meurtrière...

Le French Festival 2018 vous présente -en exclusivité en Malaisie- cette pièce de théâtre adaptée de la nouvelle de Stefan Zweig et dont l’interprétation brillante d’Alexis Moncorgé lui valut le Molière 2016 de la révélation masculine.

Of Garden Fragrance & Love
presented by Kiwanis Club Of TTDI

A concert for the charity of underprivileged children.

The concert is presented by four musicians, a soprano, an oboist, a violist and a pianist. It is essentially a Lieder (German songs) recital, but interpolated with instrumental items for coloristic variety such as oboe solo, oboe and viola duet, oboe, viola and piano trio. All the items are related to garden, what you can see and smell and feel there, the flowers, the pond, the gardener and even a mythical figure, scenes of nature and also the emotions inspired by all this. We have also selected some Chinese and Indonesian art songs – again, relating to garden – to reflect the multicultural society we live in. The concert will end with a well known song in English “Edelweiss” arranged by Chee Yean for the four instruments just for the occasion.

Soprano: Ang Mei Foong

Mei Foong’s voice was described as mellow, dulcet and soothing to the listeners. A multiple awards and scholarships winner, she was trained at the National Taiwan Normal University, Conservatorio di Musica Santa Cecilia, and the University of Melbourne. She is now a PhD candidate from University Putra Malaysia.

As an active soloist, Mei Foong has given well received performances in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor Baru, Rome, Melbourne, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong, where she performed Robert Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben, Gabriel Faure’s La Bonne Chanson, Richard Strauss’s Vier letzte Lieder, Aldo Finzi’s Art Songs, Alban Berg’s Sieben frühe Lieder, Joseph Canteloube’s Chants d’auvergne, Handel's Ode for St. Cecilia's Day, Handel's Messiah, and Beethoven's Symphony No. 9.

In 2013, Mei Foong made her Malaysia opera debut playing the title role in Bizet's opera Carmen with the EST opera company (now known as KL City Opera, KLCO), which had been received warmly at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Her other recent theatrical performances included The Mother in Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors with KLCO in 2014, and both the roles Carmen and Mercedes in Bizet’s Carmen with MPO in 2015; In 2016, she performed with KLCO as Mimì in Puccini’s La bohème; and most recently The First Lady in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte with MPO in Jan 2017, and Contessa Almaviva in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro with KLCO in Oct 2017.  Mei Foong's love for contemporary music always led her to work closely with the contemporary composers. She has had vocal works composed specifically for her and dedicated to her. 

While enjoying her busy performance career, she is also lecturing at UPM and serving as an active voice researcher in the field of voice rehabilitation, specifically for patients with chronic diseases. 

She is also a columnist in the local Chinese press, Sin Chew Daily.


Oboe: Joost Flach  

Joost graduated in 1983 from the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam.  His teachers were Carlo Ravelli and Han De Vries, who trained him in the Dutch style of oboe playing. During his studies, he was an oboe / cor anglais player in the Dutch National Youth Orchestra, and he freelanced occasionally in the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra and the Pepijn Wind Ensemble.

Having lived and worked in South East Asia since 1984, Joost has been an oboist in the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra and Kuala Lumpur Symphony Orchestra before he took on the Sub-Principal Oboe position in the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. Over the years, he has made himself known to the music circle regionally, and numerous contemporary Asian composers have composed music especially for him. In addition, he has also given recitals and workshops together with an accompanying pianist in Singapore and Shanghai.

Joost is also an enthusiast in music education. He has lectured at the Institut Seni Indonesia in Jogjakarta as part of a Dutch governmental education programme and was also a music inspector and educational project officer with the Ministry of Education in Singapore.

He has conducted several community and school bands, and many of his students are now professional players or conductors. He practically founded a wind ensemble everywhere he worked - Ansamble Tiup Jogjakarta and Singapore Sling Ensemble. He has been an artistic leader of the High Winds Wind Ensemble in Kuala Lumpur for the past 9 years and during these years, he has collected an impressive and tasteful library of music for wind instruments. Experience has convinced him that performing chamber music contributes the most to the development and growth in the quality of wind players. 


Viola: Jeremy Chiew

Violist Jeremy Chiew graduated with a Masters in Viola Performance from the Longy School of Music of Bard College, under the tutelage of Dimitri Murrath.

A recipient of the Patricia Sherman Award, Jeremy's concerto appearances include The Chamber Players and ESO. He freelances with the Macao Orchestra, re: sound Collective, The Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO), Singapore Lyric Opera (SLO), and re:mix. 

Keen to explore the mind-body connection in music-making and learning, Jeremy applies Alexander and Dalcroze techniques to his playing and teachings, and is an Associate Artiste with the Odyssey Dance Theatre. He currently coaches various secondary school string ensembles and maintains a small private teaching studio.

Jeremy curates Viva Viola, an annual concert recital since 2015 aimed at increasing awareness of this lesser-known member of the string family.

Piano: Wong Chee Yean

Chee Yean graduated from Indiana University, Bloomington in the USA, where he was under the tutelage of Mr Emile Naoumoff, who himself was a student of the great pedagogue Nadia Boulanger. 

As a performer, Chee Yean has collaborated with some very fine musicians from the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in their Chamber Music Series, both as a pianist and a harpsichordist. His solo repertoire includes some of the most challenging repertoire of the 19th century such as the Liszt and the Chopin B minor Sonatas. He also frequently works with instrumentalists and singers alike, notably, with the internationally renowned clarinettist Ronald van Spandonck during his concert tour to Malaysia. In 2013, a live recording of Chee Yean’s performance of Mozart’s 25th Piano Concerto in collaboration with High Winds Ensemble in Yogjakarta was issued by Arts Music Today in Indonesia.

As a composer, though never been formally trained, two of his orchestral works, Six Sketches and Triptych, were performed by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. Five of his songs for voice and piano published by Chin Yong Music Society have received their premieres in Malaysia, Singapore, China and the U.K. On Huygen’s Aria, commissioned by Joost Flach for High Winds Ensemble was published in Germany by Floricor Edition in 2010. He also arranges music for the wind ensemble on numerous occasions, one of which is the arrangement of Mozart 25th Piano Concerto with himself as the soloist, performed at the Georgetown Festival of Penang in and at the International Chamber Music Festival of Yogjakarta.

MOTHERLAND
presented by T'ang Dance Project

We all have our own battles to fight, our own scars to wear, and our own traumas to carry. The trauma of separation happens the moment we are born, as we leave our mothers' wombs. Trauma lies beneath our skins, passes through generations, resurfaces when we least expect. What happens then? How do we rise above what is left, reclaim, return to, and become masters of our selves and bodies? Motherland is a dialogue through movement, text, and voice, between Malaysian choreographer Tang Sook Kuan and Singaporean theatre-maker Jean Toh. Drawing on their personal narratives, they explore the duality and mutuality of two lives and their shared roots, memories, and hopes for their homes, across bodies of land, water, flesh, and memory. Motherland was first presented in 2017 as part of the 14th Johor Bahru Arts Festival.
