Rentak Bumi – a live dance spectacle celebrating the flavours of Malaysia

Taking place at Panggung Bandaraya, KL from December 16 to 18, exploring Malaysia’s rich cultural diversity and dance heritage

A dance spectacle not to be missed will be staged this December in Kuala Lumpur. Rentak Bumi 2.0 is an exciting multi-cultural dance celebration of contemporary, traditional and modern dances by three of Malaysia’s prominent dance companies, Dua Space Dance Theatre, Sutra Foundation and DiDance.

Last year, during the several Covid lockdowns, Sutra Foundation together with Dua Space Dance Theatre and DiDance, featured 6 virtual dance presentations under the title Rentak Bumi. These online presentations were created by artistic directors, Datuk Ramli Ibrahim, Zaridah Abdul Mallik, Anthony Meh and Aman Yap, as part of ArtsFAS, an initiative of Yayasan Hasanah.

Rentak Bumi, succeeded in bringing, national and international awareness, to the rich diversity of Malaysian dance during the challenging pandemic period.

This year, under the continual support of ArtsFAS 2022, the three dance companies will once again synergise their efforts in transforming these dance videos into a compelling live performance, Rentak Bumi 2.0.

Award-winning lighting designer, Tan Eng Heng will endeavour to lend his creative expertise to give Rentak Bumi the sensitive moods to light the exciting works featured in Rentak Bumi 2.0.

Rentak Bumi 2.0 will also conduct a special lecture-demonstration entitled – ‘Behind the Making of Rentak Bumi’ æ in its effort to connect with performing arts students and those interested.

This special lecture-demonstration conducted by the three artistic directors offers insight into the collaborative creative efforts of the three dance companies, behind the online staging of Rentak Bumi that led to Rentak Bumi 2.0. The lecture-demonstration session is scheduled at 6pm just prior to the last performance on December 18.

Datuk Ramli Ibrahim, Founder and Artistic Director of Sutra Foundation, said “On behalf of Sutra Foundation, Dua Space Dance Theatre and DiDance, we invite you to witness the splendour of Malay, Chinese and Indian dance flavours, spanning traditional to modern dance at Rentak Bumi 2.0. We also welcome students of performing arts to the specially put together sharing session with the artistic directors behind the creative minds in making the dance pieces in Rentak Bumi.

“We must also extend our utmost appreciation to Arts for All Seasons (ArtsFAS), an initiative by Yayasan Hasanah to preserve and celebrate the arts, that has played a pivotal part in the execution of this event and allowing us to inspire new generation of artists in visual and performing arts. This dance extravaganza is one not to be missed by art enthusiasts and the Malaysian public in general as we close the year 2022”.
