The Sutra Foundation (747061-D) was established in 2007 to develop awareness of traditional and contemporary performing and visual arts, upholding the philosophy of nurturing a society that appreciates art, while embracing the nation’s cultural diversity. Spearheaded by Ramli Ibrahim, one of the most accomplished artists of his generation, the Foundation is his legacy to Malaysia.
The Foundation encompasses Sutra Dance Theatre – where new choreography is crafted and performed; Sutra Academy – where future dancers are trained; Sutra Gallery – where visual artists exhibit their works. All of these activities are concentrated in the premises of Sutra House , the Foundation’s nerve centre.
