Kakilang 自己人 (formerly Chinese Arts Now) produces and presents world-class interdisciplinary art from a wide spectrum of Southeast and East Asian voices. We pioneer work across multiple art forms and showcase artists working at the intersection of diverse practices. 

The Orang Collectif

Started by Natalie Wong and Arthur Astier, The Orang Collectif is a cross-disciplinary and multicultural collective, who tells stories and explores different forms of art through the languages of movement, sound, lights and text, whilst being respectful of the environment.


The Orang Collectif celebrates diverse cultures, languages and theatrical traditions reflecting upon our modern society. Their method of working is based on workshops led by one or more of the collaborators subjective to the goals of the investigation. The material generated from the workshops are then moulded and refined to form a performance. They enjoy working with individuals of varying disciplines and expertise as there is always a new perspective to be challenged by and to learn from. 

Eva Wong Nava

Eva Wong Nava is a child of the diaspora. She was born on a tropical island in Southeast Asia. During the 18th century, her ancestors sailed from the Middle Kingdom to Nanyang, and planted roots in Nusantara. When the winds changed during the 20th century, her relatives sailed again. This time to cooler climates, where they planted roots in Europe and America. Eva writes stories that are inspired by her childhood and experiences. She believes that books change the world as each book is a window to a new world. When not writing, Eva can be found in art museums and galleries waiting for the next artwork or artefact to bring forth a story. She calls the Land of Albion home, and lives in London with a sheep, dog and tiger.
