Leading arts performers at JB Arts Fest
THE Aswara Dance Company took part in the Ninth JB Arts Festival at Bukit Timbalan, Johor Baru yesterday with a performance titled 3 Faces.
The free showcase was sponsored by Yayasan Sime Darby. The performance, with Dr Joseph Gonzales as artistic director, had three acts. The first was Bharatanatyam with Netranthi Nerathile, a promising exponent of Indian classical dance. This was followed by Makyung excerpts from Dewa Indera Indera Dewa, a story of two princes and their adventures, and finally Plan B, a modern story about choice.
The dance company was formed in 1994 and has performed at international dance festivals including Hong Kong Dance Teens, Dance XChange in the Philippines and Muara Festival in Singapore.
