Date: 4th July 2010 (Sunday)
Venue: Dewan Sri Pinang, Penang
The cultural dances were a lively additition to 'The King & I' musical held recently by Penang Free School. The dance group were on stage during the intermission and came on to provide a colorful performance that incorporated elements of traditional Malay, Chinese and Indian dances.
It was splendid seeing them showcasing the dances of the different cultures and in traditional attires that were in contrast with their own culture. Their movements were swift and largely because of this, it was a quite a serious ask for us to capture the best images. We mainly shot from the flanks, and the best opportunities to grab a few frames came and flew by. In a space of a few minutes, the dancers bade their farewell and retreated to the back of the stage.
And then came Act 2, Scene 1.
Back to the King!
