Synopsys of CRE
Long ago, Polynesians recorded the existence of Planet V. Forgotten to the vastness of space, Planet V has been known for its mysterious inhabitants. Legend tells of a race similar to humans, yet skilled in supernatural powers. After 173 lights years, Planet V has returned, floating parallel to Earth. It is only a matter of time that the mystery of its people unfold.
GONE are the roaring lions, performing elephants and clowns because Cre Arts Asia will bring “Cre”, a modern circus, to the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac). This colourful, gravity-defying show from Sept 29 to Oct 1 will see the circus troupe challenging elements like water, fire, air and lights. Cre means earth in Old Irish and as such it is a showcase of nature and how the performers will interpret and manipulate it, said event assistant creative director Afiique Khaikal of Psycusix. “You will be surprised how even bubbles can be distorted into crazy shapes and when spinning fire or lights,” he said. Viva Circus manager Shan Nana Liew said the event would promote hidden local talents.
“There are so many talented street performers in Malaysia and we want to provide a platform for them,” she said. Liew said “almost all performers in Cre were self-taught and started training in their 20s and 30s”. “It is amazing to see all our local talents shine and how a human body can be trained to do things,” she said, adding that they were seeking more talents to join their team.
Vibes Club owner Chris Lo is responsible for making the stage safe for aerial performances, fire spinning and other gravity-defying acts as well as ensuring the sound and lighting effects enhance the performances.
“Safety is the most important thing for this show.
“This event brings performing arts to another level by introducing new acts to the market.
“In fact, some of the performers have won several international awards and performed at renowned venues worldwide,” he said.
Cre Arts Asia will donate part of the ticket sales to International Medical University Malaysia’s (IMU) Chariofare, the university’s largest fundraising event.
