REXPERIENCE (RXP.KL) has unveiled another extraordinary tapestry of art. Following the success of ‘Other World’, culture vultures now will get the chance to step into the realms of ‘Piying Dream’ and ‘Matter of Painting’, two new immersive showcases, curated by the globally celebrated Danny Rose Studio.

Promising an enchanting fusion of tradition and cutting-edge technology, this one-hour exhibition is sure to not only bend minds but also inspire creativity and touch hearts.

Here’s what you can expect at the two-in-one showcase:

Matter of Painting

Over 3,000 meticulously crafted shadow puppets from the Qing Dynasty to the present day come alive in a digital dance in the form of ‘Piying Dream’. This unprecedented showcase, recognised as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2011, weaves together iconic design motifs and vibrant colours sourced from one of the world’s largest collections of authentic artefacts.

As you traverse this fantastical world, iconic characters from classic Chinese literature, mythical creatures, and traditional pavilions shatter the confines of conventional portrayal. Dragons welcome the Lunar New Year, the wise Zhuge Liang imparts wisdom, and the beloved Sun Wukong (Monkey King) invites you on an extraordinary journey, all set against an original Chinese musical score enhancing the riveting audio-visual experience.

Piying Dream

‘Matter of Painting’ takes inspiration from the Action Paintings of 1950s New York City, transforming RXP.KL’s theatre hall into a living canvas. An invisible digital artist explores a myriad of colours and textures, unfolding a live painting performance that challenges perceptions of space and depth, creating a meditative atmosphere.
