9 Days, 3 Ways to Dance, Butoh and Physical Theatre

Ombak-Ombak Arts Studio and PEARL are collaborating to bring an intensive nine-day workshop in dance, butoh and physical theatre which is open to the public.

Called  9 Days, 3 Ways, this workshop is led by trailblazing Malaysian performance artists – Liu Yong Sean (Dancer + Choreographer), Soonufat Supramaniam (Butoh Artist) and Izzard Padzil (Physical Theatre Artist). Each of the artists will share with the participants their individual emerging methods of performance approach and style.

If you want to:

  • Expand your versatility and flexibility
  • Learn different approaches and strengthen your performance skills
  • Discover your own unique performance identity

then 9 Days, 3 Ways is the perfect workshop for you.

The workshop is divided into 2 parts with the first part including a 3-day x 3hr workshop introduction by each artist:

22 March, 10am – 1pm: Butoh with Soonufat Supramaniam
23 March, 1pm – 4 pm: Dance with Liu Yong Sean 
24 March, 6pm – 9pm: Physical Theatre with Izzard Padzil

Following this would be the intensive workshop lab sessions of the individual artists. Participants are free to choose either one or two artists to follow depending on their personal preference. Allowance is made for participants who want to follow all three artists. The schedule for these five days (24 – 29 March) is as follows:

10am – 1pm: Butoh with Soonufat Supramaniam
2pm – 5pm: Dance with Liu Yong Sean 
6pm – 9pm: Physical Theatre with Izzard Padzil

The second part of  9 Days, 3 Ways includes an Artist Sharing session from 5:30pm – 7.30 pm by the three artists as they share insight into their individual training and creative approach to performance, and present their solo works.

9 Days, 3 Ways will culminate with a Workshop Presentation on March 30 at Komtar Auditorium A where the workshop participants will present the works that they have created with the three artists.
