Sharing Identities: Celebrating Dance in Malaysia

Mohd Anis Md Nor (Author) Stephanie Burridge (Author) Celebrating Dance in Asia and the Pacific
Dance, to a large extent, has remained outside the arena of academic discourse. This comprehensive anthology by acknowledged luminaries in the field provides a platform for this discourse. The articles in this book are rooted in research on important and relevant issues in Dance Studies and incorporate a multidisciplinary approach covering the diversity of dance practices in Malaysia from court to folk, contemporary and indigenous dance. The volume includes contributions from eminent scholars, writers and commentators, as also short essays and interviews with artists who share their stories and speak about their struggles of working within and outside tradition as they grapple with national and international audience expectations, and their own personal values and sense of identity in this multiracial country.
The book is about dancing diversities in Malaysia, a multicultural nation that celebrates old and not-so-old dance traditions in synchronicity with history, creativity, inventions and representations of its people, culture and traditions. The collection of articles and interviews celebrates the legacy of dances from the Malay Sultanates to the contemporary remix of old and new dances inspired by a melange of influences from the old world of Indian, Chinese, European and indigenous dance traditions, which gives forth dance cultures that vibrate with multicultural dance experiences.
