December 2009 marks the 10th SiCKL Open Lab. We are doing fine so far, even though with no budget, still! December lab has an exciting line-up, with lots of actions! We have versatile dancer Low Shee Hoe bringing his "Lapar Lab" performing arts collective, collaborating with improvised musicians Yong Yandsen, Kok Siew Wai and Ng Chor Guan; contact improv instructor David Lim will be presenting Dichotomous Reunion: A Physical Excavation" with partner Iylia; a special guest from Australia, Sarah Angus, will do an improv music session with our very own SiCKL house band. Sarah will also be showing a video; and of course, you need more love/angst songs in this holiday season from SCAM!
Now you can witness how "the GIG stole Christmas" at SiCKL Open Lab this year!
Information on participating artists:
1. Lapar Lab (Local Artist Performing Arts Region)“LAPAR” means ‘hungry’ or ‘desire’ from the Malay language. It indicates the serious aspiration and strong cordiality to the professionalism and the artistic creation of performing arts. LAPAR Lab was conceptualized by Low Shee Hoe, who graduated from Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts. This is a non-profit organization and it provides a platform or a space to publish works of performing arts and visual arts, through the support, sponsor and cooperation from the each member. www.laparlab. com
Founder: Low Shee Hoe
Members: HII ING FUNG, JASMINE LEE MEI LING, LAU BEH CHIN, LIM HOOI MIN, LIM SHIN HUI, LIM SIEW LING, NANCY NG PEI YU, SAW LI WEI, TAN SHIOA POR, TEH XIAO MIN, YAP CHEE YEE, TAN LEI MOOI, LEE LIXIN.
2. David Lim & Iylia: David's retrogressive foray into faux-modernism has been accelerated by his love for amorphous improvisation, his dabbling in nouveau cirque, his fascination with Wikipediafied art movements, and his YouTubing of contemporary popisms, although he attests to a high probability, statistically speaking, of being a Philistine, irreligiously speaking, in each and every one of them.
3. Sarah Angus is an Australian artist. She completed Masters in Visual Arts at Queensl and College of Art in Brisbane (Griffith University, 2008). Her arts practice has been influenced by extensive travel and work in communities through Asia, Africa and Australia. Her creative work - whether sound-based, video installation or paintings – is a visceral response and analysis of what she explains as her social mythology. Born in rural Victoria, Australia, 1983. Currently living in Desa Pandan, Kuala Lumpur.
4. Upon returning to Malaysia in 2006, Ng Chor Guan collaborated actively with theatrical artists and choreographers diversify his works into a new era. To name a few, theatre productions include Antigone, Okiku- A Tragedy Retold, The Lost and The Ecliptic and Break-ing. Dance collaborations include The Curse of The Forbidden Palace, Whispers of Love, The ‘R’ Adventurous Drift and Ballet Nutcracker. With all his hard to show for, it wasn’t a surprise that he was nominated for 2008 Cameronian Arts Awards Most Promising Artist.
