Since 2013, its members have made debut appearances in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Johor; each time collaborating with local puppetry practitioners. The programme in Kelantan is composed of three parts. The seven-strong ensemble will kick things off with a short demonstration before passing the floor to dalang Pak Rahim bin Hamzah and his team. They will end the show together with a joint presentation, taking cues from one another’s signature techniques.
