'Mepaan' comes from the indigenous Kayan language from the island of Kalimantan, meaning 'always'.

Within the cavernous space that is the repurposed Pasir Panjang Power Station in Singapore, Wong Chee Wai's set design cleverly placed the orchestra on terraces, leaving space for a strategically placed ceremonial headdress and a lit-up booth with the traditional sape at the rear. The two fixtures were linked by ramps running on both sides around the orchestra.

The climax of 'Mepaan' saw the ceremonial passing of the headdress from Jau to Milang , both representatives from the Tuyang Initiative.
