Raymond Liew Jin Pin
KAMPUNG BARU (NEW VILLAGE)
Traditional dances are nothing new - so what do they have to do with contemporary art? For his new production, Raymond Liew Jin Pin delved into the field of traditional Malay, Chinese and Indian dance movements in search of a contemporary zone, a Kampung Baru enveloped by the principles of tradition. After training in various dance styles, he allows himself – and three contemporary dancers – to reinterpret his cultural roots and embody his autobiography. Kampung Baru is the attempt to establish a village with its own brand-new version of an eternal tradition.

Raymond Liew Jin Pin
graduated at the Folkwang University (Essen) with BA/MA in dance and choreography, as well as a Diploma at ASWARA in Malaysia where he learned the multiple traditional dance forms such as Malay,Chinese and Indian dance. As a dancer he worked among others with mit Nature Theatre of Oklahoma, Theater Bremen, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, Samir Akika, and Ben J. Riepe. His choreographies were shown at International Contemporary Dance Festival of Panama and d’Motion International Dance Festival in Malaysia.
By reflecting his dance background, Raymond researches what a fusion of dances can be. He questions the encounter of different dance techniques within his body and works, disintegrates these techniques and interweaves them to seek a common base. The aim is to figure out a method to fuse these influences with an equally analytical and intuitive approach.
