Un Yamada's People without Seasons

Un Yamada’s “People without Seasons” is back, but this time in Kota Kinabalu! “People without Seasons”, a mixed performance of dance, music, and drama was staged at The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac) last October 2017. It was well received by the audiences including Malaysian dance practitioners. The powerful yet unified performance was created by the group of Malaysian dancers and Japanese dance troupe from Co Un Yamada.

To continue the hype this year, Sabah has been chosen since it was the place where Un Yamada has conducted a research trip for the klpac show last year. In addition, among 7 Malaysian performers, 3 of them (Jabar Laura, Lim Pei Ern, Pengiran Qayyum) are from Sabah, and one of them, Joanna Koleth-Tan, is currently residing in Sabah. We are also welcoming Christopher Liew Vui Ngee, Artistic Director of Synergy Dance Theatre, as the Production Advisor for this show in Kota Kinabalu.

The piece brings to life Un Yamada’s kinetic interpretations of hope, using the bodies to express such emotions as joy, anger, pathos, and humour with relation to memories. 

People without Seasons is jointly organised by The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur and Co. Un Yamada, with the cooperation of New Era University College, and Bogus Merchandise. The event is open to the public. Tickets are priced at RM30 for general entry and RM20 for students, senior citizens, disabled, and JFKL library members.
