Time Out says
The annual celebration of Malay arts and culture returns to appreciate the rich heritage of the Malay Archipelago. Anticipate three newly commissioned works – Fatih – The Prince & The Drum, which shines the spotlight on percussion; The Seen and Unseen, a film-to-stage production about a pair of Balinese twins; and Teroka! Kerana Nila, an interactive children's theatre work that follows Sang Nila. Also look out for Singapore artistes like Syarif and Akeem Jahat, plus Indonesian music diva Hetty Koes Endang as they take centre stage. And don't miss the rare kuda kepang dance at the festival opening, as well as the UNESCO-recognised mak yong performances throughout the weekend.
