KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian and Taiwanese dancers have come together to create an amazing show at the Blossom Arts Festival. The dancers – from Ramli Ibrahim Sutra Dance Company and Dua Space Dance from Malaysia, and Taiwan’s NTNU (National Taiwan Normal University) Gradu­ate Institute of Performing Arts – gave a spectacular show at the event held at Wisma MCA here last night. The show was the third international performance at the festival aimed at promoting arts and culture in the country as well as providing a platform for Malaysians to showcase their talent. MCA secretary-general Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan said Malaysia was a fascinating country with the cultures and good values from various ethnic groups and civilizations. “We incorporated all these into our own that has made the Malaysian culture so unique in the world,” he said at the opening of the show. He said cross-border culture exchanges enabled artists to acquire knowledge and help the industry to flourish. The month-long festival will end tonight with the Blossom Arts Awards to recognize the outstanding performances and contributions to the arts and culture industry in Malaysia.
