About Jalan Jalan Cari Makan
This production is the hard work of the Year 1 SHIFTers, who have successfully gone through a full year of training and ending it off with an opportunity to apply their experiences. Jalan Jalan Cari Makan features 4 pieces choreographed by 4 dance industry professionals, created together with the SHIFTers.
"Jalan Jalan Cari Makan": loosely means going for a stroll to look for food.
We envision the dancers' journey thus far as a collection of different experiences - the "ingredients" that make up who they are today. What happens when we take the time to collate these ingredients? What dishes can we cook up? How do we feel about the journey and the results?
Exploring themes from hunger to desire, confusion to abstinence, we invite you to jalan-jalan with us this January 2023.
