Catan Kulit (Painted Skin)
"We believe that each and every mask said got its own character and meaning. The mask has got great energies. We hope that different masks could exude different body movements, anchoring on the impulse of dance. This is will heighten the drama in the theatre."
Dance drama Catan Kulit (also known as “Painted Skin”) is based on the famous story written by Pu Song Ling from the Ching Dynasty, in ancient China. Nyoba Kan, led by artistic director Lee Swee Keong, always uses Chinese folklore as the basis of creations. This version of Catan Kulit presents to the audience the most avant-garde and yet absurdist pieces. A production that skillfully combines traditional and modern dance techniques, as well as the creative elements of the mask.
