Malaysians can look forward to a barrel of laughs with the much-acclaimed Korean dance comedy, Break Out – Extreme Dance Comedy, in its debut performance in the country.

These five prisoners are inspired to plan a daring escape into the outside world when they received a mysterious and sacred text. The story is told in a form of a dance that adapts pre-existing dance moves and combines gymnastics, break dancing, yoga and martial arts moving to unparalleled DJ music – a performance as never before.

Gallerie TAKSU Kuala Lumpur, 17, Jln Pawang, Keramat Hujung, KL

Tel: 03 4251 4396

Speed - and its counterpart technology - affect not just what we see, but how we see. This is the foundation to Matthew Carver’s paintings and this new suite of works, in a solo exhibition, called 'Sirens and Lights', at Gallerie TAKSU from Apr 16 - May 7.

Matthew Carver’s paintings immerse the viewer in this ‘unreal’ spatial vortex Virilo describes, the metaphorical fracture of speed as paint hits canvas in luminous blips and trails. It is an illusory space rather than that of postcard propaganda or nostalgia and its reverberation consumes the gallery with the energy of a tornado.

For more information, please contact Rini at the gallery at 03 4251 4396.
