Ramli Ibrahim – Rasa Unmasked


The Penang Arts Council is delighted to present Ramli Ibrahim, Malaysia’s foremost Indian Classical Dancer, live in Penang.


For one night only, Ramli will bring his sensuous new dance collaboration to Penang. Featuring dancers from Malaysia’s Sutra Dance Theatre, Australia’s Lingalayam Company and ethnomusicologist Alex Dea, the show premiered in Sydney in early March and was sold out at the Sydney Opera House before touring Malaysia, Singapore, and India.
