Two enchanting programs of short works by Malaysian dancers.

Like the traditional welcoming betelnut box, or tepak sireh, Tepak Tari is a box of dancing variety, an intoxicating experience.

Featuring works by:

  • Sutra Dance Theatre, choreographed by Divya Nair
  • ASWARA Faculty of Dance, choreographed by Raziman Sarbini
  • DPAC Dance Company, choreographed by JS Wong
  • Kwang Tung Dance Company, choreographed by Amy Len

  • Mikuni Yanaihara (Japan), performed by Joanna Tan
  • Gerard Mosterd (Netherlands), performed by January Low

From charming Chinese classical dance performed by school students, to minimalist contemporary works set to avant-garde music.

From the rhythmic tapestries of odissi, to the explosive power of wushu.

Like the ritual of assembling the areca nut, betel leaf and lime paste, Tepak Tari stirs together the rich living tradition of Malaysia’s dance heritage with fresh perspectives and spicy dashes of creativity.
