SAKTI: Malay folk tales, aerial artistry and drumming theatre

The story begins with a hero fisherman returning to his village from hunting in the ocean, and the villagers were very happy to celebrate a great harvest! 

But what they did not know was that he not only brought a great harvest back, but also evil forces from the ocean into the village. This has affected the fisherman greatly. His condition worsened day by day, his expression strange, sometimes sober, sometimes irritable, no one knew what had happened. 

Seeing this, the village wizard knew that the situation was not good, and knew he needed to ask the Seventh Princess of the Sea for help.

Show duration: 105 minutes ( with 15 minutes intermission)

‘Ulek Mayang’ (one of the oldest art forms in Malaysia) is a traditional Malay folk dance/tale, treasured by Malaysians. Synergizing the artistry of air artists VIVA Circus and musicians HANDS Percussion in narrating excerpts of this story not only promises a very interesting collaboration but will present visuals that audiences will find captivating. 

Our first engagement with VIVA was during the 16th Hua Zong Literary Awards in 2022. SAKTI is our first full collaboration where we sought to merge our art forms to create a unique interpretation of this captivating folktale. It will be performed across the stage through aerial acrobatics and accompanied by contemporary music with drums, percussion, gamelan and other musical instruments. 

Look forward to our drummers in a new challenge to express their artistry through expertly choreographed aerial acrobatics (using specialist fabrics) accompanied by new and rearranged Malay song compositions.
