DANCE OF THE SOUL

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture -

Di­rectly trans­lated to mean “to call”, “to sum­mon”, or “to ap­peal”, seru is used to de­scribe sense­less, hor­rific, and of­ten un­solved events in Malaysian his­tory. In­spired by this no­tion, the Fac­ulty of Dance at ASWARA is tap­ping into our in­ner rhythms this month with its lat­est dance ini­tia­tive, Seru. The pro­gramme fea­tures a col­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary dance works char­ac­terised by a va­ri­ety of themes un­der the guid­ing eye of pro­ducer Joseph Gon­za­les. High­lights in­clude out­door per­for­mance The Last Tea Party, the haunting Tanah Pusaka, and the highly po­etic Other Echoes spun from TS Eliot’s poem “Four Quar­tets”. On April 9 at Black Box, Da­mansara Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre. www.dpac.com.my
