| In conjunction with Malay CultureFest 2018 & Undangan ke Baitullah special exhibition

Malay dance in Singapore is seeing the emergence of a new generation of leaders. Keen on redefining the boundaries of what Malay dance is and can be, these leaders have produced unconventional works that are more open to multi-disciplinary collaborations and demanding greater academic discourse. Their efforts have been viewed with both excitement and caution from peers and veterans alike.

This forum will bring together leaders representing three generations of Malay dancers as they share their views, approaches and desires for the Malay dance landscape.
