Sound of Color

Gap (the clothing label) worked with Chris Do and Blind, Inc to create a music video for a Danish band, The Raveonettes, based on the question: "What sound would black & white make?"

The answer, curiously, was articulated through some elements of shadow puppetry. Video below:

Coming Soon

To a panggung near you!

Projek Wayang is proud to announce an up-coming performance that for the 2008 Season.

Aug 29, 30 - Wayang Buku at Stella Maris' Library. Time tbc.

More performances are being slated, for sure!

We've been a little quiet, we know, but there's been a lot of 'wayang' happening in Malaysia that warrants us to just pay attention to all the different dalangs wanting to weave their own stories about the country. A lot of material for our performances, no doubt, and you will soon be the beneficiaries of these political turbulences.
