Multisensory, dazzling and explosive, SuperEverything* is the latest live cinema performance project by The Light Surgeons, a UK-based art collective, exploring the relationship between identity, ritual and place. The project explores these universal themes using a combination of observational documentary footage, motion graphics, creative programming and original music production to create a poetic audiovisual tapestry that forms a rich, kaleidoscopic view of the cultural landscape of Malaysia. The project was filmed on location across Peninsular Malaysia and brings together a collection of Malaysia’s cutting-edge musical and visual artists, including musician Ng Chor Guan, who will perform live at this performance.
SuperEverything* explores who we are as human beings and how our complex identities are connected to our everyday environments through a multitude of rituals. It is a journey through Malaysia’s past to understand our shared present.
