reviews THE NEXT. Hands Percussion. Artistic director Bernard Goh. Music director Susan Sarah John. Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 8 November 2012. Malaysia's renowned Hands Percussion Team (Hands) never stops seeking new possibilities in performance through instrumental manipulation and movement exploration (see Hands 20002012). It has gone from the initial "Twenty-four Festive Drums" Chinese drum performance in schools, which launched artistic director Bernard Goh as an assistant teacher in 1990,1 through the incorporation of Malay gamelan and theatrical movement expression in Hands performances as the ensemble was developed as a professional company in 1997. It has evolved from school-based drum coaching, which sustained Goh in his early career, to nationwide Hands Balik Kampung (Return to the Village) tours (20092012), spearheaded by Eric Ch'ng, a graduate of the early training who became administrative director, which enable children from rural villages to experience performing arts through camps, workshops, parades, and performances. The company has gone from an amateur group in which all individuals earn their living in other occupations to a focused company that employs eight full-time performers and tours internationally. Hands has gone through fifteen years of a creative and exciting journey. The Twentyfour Festive Drums
