Silat, the Malay martial art, allows the actor to work on balance. The exercises include forms used to deceive the ‘enemy’, opening the body or closing it with the aim to kill, maim or play, in full control of the energy. The energy can be keras (soft) and lembat (strong). The workshop includes a warm up with a low impact Tai-chi based exercise; Silat exercises for balance and speed; simple physical scores using Silat dramatic movements and gestures; learning a Malaysian traditional song using Silat comic movements and gestures.
