MAU: J-ASEAN Dance Collaboration

MAU 舞う weaves a dance fabric with the vibrant colours of Malaysian traditional dance and Filipino stylized Mindanao dance, Balinese court dance, Japanese Kabuki dance, and the Chinese Liyuan opera from Singapore.

Choreographer Director Fujima Kanjuro VIII, the Grandmaster of the 300 year old Fujima School of Kabuki, laces MAU with Kabuki leitmotifs to create a multi-layered dance adventure full of elegance and wit.

Commissioned by the Japan Foundation to mark the 40th anniversary of Japan-ASEAN friendship, MAU (meaning ‘dance’ in Japanese) celebrates the rich tapestry of Asian dance traditions in a modern setting.

Performers
Japan : Soke-Fujima-Ryu + Sawamura Kuniya
Malaysia: ASWARA Dance Company
Indonesia: LKB Saraswati
Philippines: Airdance
Singapore: Siong Leng Musical Association
