For those still hesitant to travel, enjoy a slice of Bali with “pragina : EMOSI” created by a duo who shares a deep love for Balinese dance.

Malaysian-based dancer Emi grew up in Indonesia where she has spent her life mastering Balinese dance from the age of four. She has opened KENZO’s fashion show and performed at the Singapore International Festival of Arts. Zhafir Muzani, who also trained in Indonesia, has won four awards for his spellbinding Balinese dance performance. 

Together, they bring you “pragina : EMOSI” (pragina means dancer), a coming together of traditional and contemporary Balinese dance. You will see pieces that are entirely authentic to the traditional art form from the facial expressions down to the footwork while some pieces cross over to the contemporary in hope of building greater appreciation towards the “Nusantara” art form so that this tradition can continue over time. 

Staged at klpac in November 2021, this performance recording is a rare opportunity to experience Balinese dance and its possibilities, brought to life by Emi and Zhafir along with another talented dancer Shafiq Yussof to the sounds of the Balinese flute played by MK Ridzuan.

pragina : EMOSI (pragina = Penari dalam bahasa Bali) merupakan eksplorasi gerakan Bali yang dieksperimenkan antara tradisional dan kontemporari. Menampilkan beberapa karya tradisional dan kontemporari berlandaskan gerakan Bali yang meluahkan pelbagai emosi melalui wajah dan gerak tubuh penari. Percampuran antara tradisional Bali dan kontemporari adalah sebagai bentuk apresiasi seni nusantara agar tak lapuk dek hujan, tak lekang dek panas.

Presenter Bio:

The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat

Since its inception in 1989, The Actors Studio has been presenting groundbreaking theatre in Malaysia. In 2006, it created The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat arm to bridge the gap between the arts and the people in line with the National Arts and Culture Department’s efforts to ‘merakyatkan seni’. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat’s inaugural project was Alfian Sa’at’s “Anak Bulan di Kampong Wa’ Hassan” which toured to five villages in Peninsular Malaysia. Since then, it has re-staged many classics such as “Philadelphia, Here I Come!”, “Uda dan Dara” and “Rashomon”. It has also revived interest in traditional art forms through productions like “A Night of Cantonese Opera” and “Mak Yong Titis Sakti”. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat has also been a key driver behind the development of new content. It has premiered works such as “The Taste of Water”, “Kandang” (based on George Orwell’s Animal Farm), a BM version of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” and “Dato’ Seri” (based on Macbeth). In addition to on-going series like “Don’t Let…” and “Dancebox” to promote new content, it also initiated The New Play Project for emerging playwrights. In 2016, it mounted a year-long Shakespeare 400 season. Two productions “Shakespeare Goes Bollywood” and “Richard III” was named the “Best of 2016” by the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards. Richard III won 6 other awards. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat continues to bring quality and accessible theatre with a strongly Malaysian voice. The Actors Studio just celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019.
