Synopsis:

9 Rangkaian Tari Melayu is a collection of choreographic works that were developed from the Serampang 12 series, each with a philosophical narrative and refined techniques that represent the customs and standards of elegance and sophistication in Malay culture. Serampang 12 (Dua Belas) is a traditional Malay dance created by Guru Sauti, a dance pioneer from North Sumatra in the 1940s. This presentation will examine the techniques presented in each choreography and how it relates back to the philosophy of the Malay culture.

Also available:
2-part workshops Serampang 12 and Tari Melayu encourage deeper engagement with the form and choreographies.
