SuperEverything* - A Live Cinema Exploration Of The Malaysian Multiverse

Commissioned by the British Council back in 2011, SuperEverything* was a live cinema performance project that explored identity, ritual and place in relation to Malaysia’s past, present and future. Created by UK audiovisual artists The Light Surgeons in collaboration with a diverse bunch of Malaysian artists, the performance is described as a fusion of music, field recordings, filmmaking and real-time moving image that transports its audiences on a journey through a series of universal narratives. Now, more than a decade on, Malaysian audiences will be treated to a special screening of a SuperEverything* performance recorded at the Hackney Empire in London in 2013. The film screening will be interspersed with a series of discussions with The Light Surgeons and their Malaysian collaborators, reflecting on the themes in the show and the genesis of this live cinema performance. We find out more from Christopher Thomas Allen, the Founder & Director of the Light Surgeons, who was the lead artist, director and creative producer of SuperEverything, and also Tim Cowie, the music director and one of the leading artists on the project.
