Take the leap.




Orangutan Swing started as a side project of Design Kompany, at the start of 2012. It was started as an event series around the idea of dialogue-making. Then, it was a touring circus of stimulating creativity in communities around the world.

In march 2014, we found a temporary home in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

That’s when the soul searching journey started. It has now been almost 10 years!

So much has changed, and yet, so little in how we address ourselves as a Kompany has, even as our partnerships multiplied across many projects. It is time for a reflection. Lots of questions that just need to be asked, questions that we need to simply sit with.

So, while Orangutan Swing figures itself out, I’m putting the blog here on hiatus. Please feel free to get in touch (akira@orangutanswing.com) in the meantime, and tell us about yourself. I am always open to stories from new and old friends.
