Super Everything in Malaysia (c) Cheem Photography
SuperEverything* is a new cross disciplinary performing arts project, commissioned by the British Council and created by the UK's leading audio-visual artists The Light Surgeons in collaboration with Malaysian artists.
Filmed on location across Peninsular Malaysia, this project sets out to explore the relationship between identity, ritual and place across the landscape of Malaysia and seeks to discover who we are and how our complex identities are connected.
Delivered across multiple projections and different media, this live cinema performance layers together documentary footage and motion graphics with an original, live electronic musical score to journey through Malaysia's past, to understand its present and to imagine its future.
Originally performed in MAP @ Publika in 2011, SuperEverything* brings The Light Surgeons, Christopher Thomas Allen and Timothy Cowie together with a cutting-edge collection of Malaysia's musical and visual artists including:
Motion designer Fariz Hanapiah (MotioFixio), visual artist Fauzi Yusoff (Efozy), experimental soundscapist Flica, percussion ensemble HANDS Percussion, classical and contemporary music composer Ng Chor Guan and gamelan ensemble Rhythm in Bronze.
Supereverything* has since performed in New Zealand, India, United States and the UK, with plans to take it to Australia.
