BUKU PROGRAM / PROGRAMME BOOK


SINOPSIS / SYNOPSIS

“Ke Mana Sang Kancil” presents a story that applies throughout the world. It is the story of the relationship between humanity, wild animals and wild places. It is the story about human need and human greed on a small and threatened Planet Earth. But ultimately it is a story of hope in the recognition that through a change in human attitudes nature and humanity can prosper side by side.

“Ke Mana Sang Kancil” is a story told through the extraordinary journey of Sang Kancil the mousedeer – the smallest of the hoofed animals whose home is in the forests of South East Aisa. Sang Kancil is the subject of many Malaysian legends where it is portrayed as being wise and intelligent.

The story begins in the forest where Sang Kancil lives in harmony with the trees and is playing with her friends the peacock, monkey and butterfly, in the warm afternoon sun. But the forces of destruction, in the form of Anti Nature and the loggers, enter the forest, and the mousedeer’s nature habitat is destroyed forever. Frightened, Sang Kancil runs off into the night, seeking a new home.

First she travels to the East Coast beaches and meets the giant leathery turtle as it prepares to lay its eggs. Again the forces of Anti-Nature intervene, as poor people take the turtles eggs for food, and clamouring tourists show scant respect for the turtle’s humble existence.

Sang Kancil’s journey then leads her to the mangrove swamp. Here she struggles in the sticky mud, and is taunted by cheeky crabs. But the crabs are also in danger. Yellow earth is dumped, turning the mangrove swamp into barren dry land, and the forces of Anti Nature are triumphant once again.

Then Sang Kancil meets the crow, who proudly leads her to the hub of progress – the city. The shy mousedeer is drawn into the frenetic nightlife of The Shopping Complex Heros. Again Anti-Nature appears and a celebration ensues. But the city life is no place for a mousedeer and an exhausted Sang Kancil flees the decay of urban refuse and pollution.

Rushing from the city Sang Kancil meets the wily and cunning spider who has adapted to the changing environment. A tiger appears and threatens Sang Kancil. However the mighty tiger itself falls prey to poachers and is carried off by the forces of Anti-Nature.

Sang Kancil seeks refuge in a cave with the bats. Although she is welcome here, the dark and subterranean habitat is no place for a mousedeer and she travels on.

Weary and dispirited, Sang Kancil journeys on, and stumbles upon a beautiful but threatened forest, a habitat just like the home she had lost. Happiness is short lived, however as the forces of Anti-Nature gather and threaten their new home. The mousedeer joins the other wildlife in a battle with Anti-Nature’s forces. The Shopping Complex Heros and Tourists, on a forest picnic, look on and cheer, reveling in the violence; but one by one they are drawn in to support the animals. Eventually the aggressors are overcome, Anti-Nature is banished in disgrace and the forest dwellers are re-united in harmony.
