Senilab & 33.3™ reimagines the concept of light – Applying light as both a tool and visual outcome to reshape, redefine and represent a space. Cahaya is an exploration to put forward a deeper understanding of the realm we live in.Through our interaction with matter, this context creation allows us to experience, explore and engage in the meaning of ‘light’.
Cahaya aims to push non-traditional mediums while exploring intersections where modern and traditional art can exist in parallel. Our mission is to preserve our local tradition, history and culture – by showcasing them through our sonic and visual reinterpretations.
In the fourth edition of Cahaya’s show - the partnership between Senilab and 33.3™ will collaborate with Pusaka and Kumpulan Kuda Kepang Parit Raja to explore the history of Kuda Kepang, a dance of Javanese origin performed in Johor by communities of Javanese lineage.
The performance attempts to explore the notion of the unseen and unseen world – the experience of trance akin to a brief journey to ‘Kayangan’, the celestial realm.
A place that corresponds to myth, imagination and dreams. Here, the ‘shadow self’ of the subconscious emerges and is expressed through embodied isim in the protected circle of the ritual space – we are observers of the show and yet we are an essential part of the performance, for the presence of the unseen world is validated by being seen with our eyes.
