Outline of projects

“Jejak-旅 Tabi Exchange: Wandering Asian Contemporary Performance” is an exchange programme designed to travel across cities in Asia for the next three years (2018-2020). The title draws from multiple Asian vernaculars suggesting cross-cultural practices and the exchange nature at its core.

Jejak (Malay/Indonesian word) = “to step” or “steps” (Malay) or “footprint” or “trace” (Indonesian)
Tabi (Japanese/Chinese word) = the idea of travel and making trip both as verb and noun with slightly different nuance and poetics.The inaugural edition in 2018 took place in Yogyakarta, Indonesia (13th – 20th Jul.) and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (20th – 30th Sep.).
