In this masterclass, Encik Osman Abdul Hamid shares his knowledge and experience from his more than 30 years of performing practice.
These masterclasses aim to provide a platform for local dancers to gain skills and techniques which they can imbue into their practice. Participants will also be able to gain insight from these established artists on their training in Malay dance, encouraging cross-cultural understanding and promoting good relations within the region. The recommended participants are dancers who have been actively practising or performing Malay dance over the past 12 months.
Muara Festival is presented by Era Dance Theatre in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay as part of Esplanade’s Pentas series.
