Push the limits at KLEX 2017: Crossing Over, in November

The eighth edition of KLEX, the KL Experimental Film, Video and Music Festival, is looking for submissions! This year, our theme is “Crossing Over”. 
Crossing Over is the journey of departing from one point to another point. In genetics, the mechanism of crossing-over will result in genetic diversity. The process of crossing over brings information from one place to another. It can also refer to the transformation from one form to another. It signifies change, with recognition of the sources. It embraces traits from both ends, and when they come together a new reality is formed.
Use “Crossing Over” as a hint or a source of inspiration and imagination. We’re awaiting for your new work, starting from NOW!

Ankur Ensemble presents 'Under The Kayon Tree'

“Under the Kayon tree” is a musical performance using elements of theatre and dance to share well-loved Malaysian legends and stories. These stories are our adaptations of the legends of Parameswara, Hang Tuah, Hang Li Po and Mahsuri.

The Ankur ensemble performs original compositions under the musical direction of TFA’s award winning composer, Jyotsna Nithyanandan.

The word Ankur comes from Sanskrit and means “sprout”. The sprout is an analogy of the various people who came to settle here and how their seeds of culture, language and traditions have “sprouted” from this fertile soil and has now grown into a strong tree with a beautiful amalgamated culture which could be truly called Malaysian.

In this production the Kayon tree is based on the mythological Pohon Beringin or Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is a mythological concept of a tree that supports and nurtures all forms of life, from the smallest insect to the other creatures that inhabit the forest.

Its roots firmly embedded in the ground, its trunk stands strong, its branches reaching out to embrace new influences and the fruit which it bears, is a result of the beautiful coming together of its surroundings.

As Malaysians, we come from different seeds and as trees, we grow in one forest.

This year the Ankur ensemble is joined by Shanthini Venugopal.
