Dance Malaysia: Our Culture in Pictures


it was the launching of Merdeka-themed exhibitions at BSC in partnership with the NSTP this morning. the reason why i was there~ just like last year's Merdeka exhibition of works from renowned cartoonist Datuk Lat for the “Lat 1 Malaysia” Merdeka exhibition., this year's designs were also done by FW (Fusion Werks Sdn Bhd)~ mehubby & brother's company. obviously, i wouldn't want to miss it for the world! ;P

Better known for her role in spearheading the Five Arts Society, as well as a producer, Marion D’ Cruz’s role in pioneering the concept and establishing a tradition of contemporary dance in the country is unrivalled.
