GERAK: A Malay Dance Symposium
February 18 @ 8:30 am - February 19 @ 5:00 pmFree
Gerak (lit: to move) is a Malay dance Symposium that is created to initiate conversations and explore possibilities around Malay Dance.
Gerak began from NUS Centre for the Arts (CFA)’s interest to foster a deeper culture of learning and documentation of the arts in Singapore. It is also part of a thread that Ilsa Tari has established over the years in encouraging more dialogue concerning the role of Malay dance in society.
Presented by NUS CFA and Ilsa Tari, the Gerak Symposium intends to provide a space for discussions and explorations on the evolving role of Malay dance in Singapore today.
Day 1 of the Symposium will look at the subject matter and the type of content being expressed through Malay dance performances in Singapore.
Day 2 of the Symposium will look at the potential use of Malay dance in other sectors such as social services, healthcare, and wellness.
We hope Gerak can be a space where people meet, talk, and share ideas and concerns around Malay dance.
