This event is over.


In line with the central theme for this year's Muara Festival of reflecting the old with the new, this year's dance showcases will feature a mix of classic Malay dances, Kreasi Baharu Dances—which are new creative works based on traditional dances—and modern contemporary dances.


The second day of dance showcases features contemporary dance. Look forward to performances by veterans of Mak Mak Menari and Pak Pak Penglipur, as well as performances by schools in the Muara Youth Dance Development Programme alongside singers Rudy Djoharnain, Asiah Sinan and many more.


Entertaining, enlightening and empowering, Muara Festival has made a name for itself as a platform for ideas exchange, collaboration, and sharing between local and regional dance practitioners, enthusiasts, and the public. Within these three days, the festival will premiere dances from classic Malay movies produced by Shaw Organisation during Singapore’s golden age of cinema, as well as new dances from local partners with the accompaniment of live musicians and emcees.


Muara Festival is presented by Era Dance Theatre in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay as part of Esplanade’s Pentas series.
