About The Performance

“Sheepmaker in his interesting experiments, Galang Guni collecting junks, Drunkard in his own world, Policewoman maintaining order, Ah Xiu in her secret garden… Hot Reddie, Cooling Blue, Harmony Greenie, Power Yellow, Sparkling Oren, Titus fighting, Kua Fu (from ancient Chinese legend) chases after the Sun… What is this?”

This is the colourful world of the Sheepmaker entitled SHEEP.

SHEEP is a fun dance performance that comprises of many colourful, wacky and interesting characters from real life, legend and imagination. The dance also incorporates interesting science facts, a see-as-it-happens setting, shadow play, and expression of colours and lights…

This is also an interactive show involving no audience seats at all. The dance may happen very near to the audience from different directions. Blurring the boundary line between the dancers and audience. Lucky audience may get to have fun and dance together with some of the wacky characters.

The performance SHEEP is extremely suitable for children, family and those young-at-heart. Although it looks kiddy, it is a condensed little world, not just for children! SHEEP is in everybody’s heart… Enjoy the young and pure ‘self’.
