KonTra : Borneo

KonTra is an on-going experimental dance series helmed by choreographer Zhafir Muzani which honours our traditions while forging a new way forward through contemporary dance. The latest edition, KonTra: Borneo, promises to be a showcase of five talented choreographers from East Malaysia along with one more from Peninsular Malaysia, who have all drawn inspiration from the people of East Malaysia, their culture and their way of life, to weave a rich tapestry of movements and stories into six contemporary dance works. This experimental dance show aims to celebrate Bornean culture, and is being held in conjunction with the upcoming Kaamatan and Gawai festivities. We discuss more with Ethel Deidre, a dancer and choreographer who will be presenting the piece titled “Don’t Slam The Door” in the production.
