The Lensic and the Currents New Media Festival present The Light Surgeons: SuperEverything.

SuperEverything* is a new live cinema performance project by The Light Surgeons, which explores the relationship between identity, ritual and place through a unique collaborative performing arts project commissioned by the British Council Malaysia and with the support of Canon Malaysia.

The project explores these universal themes using a combination of observational documentary footage, motion graphics, creative programming and original music production to create a poetic audio visual tapestry that forms a rich, kaleidoscopic view of the cultural landscape of Malaysia. The project was filmed on location across Peninsular Malaysia and brings together a collection of Malaysia’s cutting-edge musical and visual artists. Through this process of cultural and artistic cross-collaboration, The Light Surgeons have evolved the project into a new exploded documentary cinema performance in line with their previous works in this arena.

SuperEverything*challenges us to contemplate our shared human story and to ask the timeless question of who we are as individuals and as a society. Through the juxtaposition of tradition and modernity, the project seeks to uncover who we are as human beings and how our complex identities are connected to our every day environments through a multitude of different rituals. It is a journey through Malaysia’s past to understand its present and to reveal a shared social history that looks to our future.
