PROGRAM

Our choreography, program, music scores and ultimately the stories we tell are always evolving. Listed below is just a few of our best known dances. We guarantee you that every night is a different night for us, and every show is a different show for you.

 

THE DANCE OF THE NAT VOTARCSSES

A dance of many Nat Votaresses who appeal to  spiritual beings for the success of their performance. From time immemorial, it has been the tradition of Myanmar theatre to invoke the blessing of the Nats - whose abodes are believed to be on higher planes of existence than men’s in the Buddhist cosmology. The natural fear of offending the Nats preserves this dance undefiled. As such this dance remains as it was in the earliest days.

 

DANCE OF THE PRINCELY ARCHERS

The Dance of the Princely Archers in traditional Myanmar costumes and makutas. Although now arranged in an ensemble, this dance traditionally perfromed solo by the virtuoso of the dramatic company. However the successive phases of the dance obeisance - lifting the bow, stringing the bow, aiming the arrow, and letting it fly are all according to tradition.

 

MAKE BELIEVE MARIONETTE

A myth in Myanmar theatre is that the manipulators of the marionette strings have so perfected their art, that the dance style of the marionettes became the envy of  some human performers. As such a special dance was born, where the dancer unlearns her human anatomy and movements to mimic the marionette. It is a dance in which art imitates life and life imitates art.

 

THE DANCES OF THE THREE DYNASTIES

These dances celebrate the three major dynasties of Myanmar; Bagan, Innwa, and Konebaung.

 

SITA’S REJECTION OF DASAGIRI’S COURTSHIP

A Myanmar version of a legendary scene from the Ramayana. The princess Sita has been taken prisoner by the Ogre King Dasagiri. In captivity, Sita is confronted by Dasagiri. As Dasagiri attempts to win over Sita’s love, she must rely on her only defence - a thin but powerful veil of chastity.

 

CHIN LONE OR CANE BALL PERFORMANCE

Chin Lone or Cane Ball is a traditional Myanmar game usually played by four to six men in circle. What is unusual here is that the game is played by only one player, and a lady at that too.

 

STICK STRUCK DRUMS (BYAW)

A dance, centred around the intricate and cross-rythmic sound patterns of the stick struck drums called Byaw. As old as the royal drums, Byaw is usually played for Novitiation Ceremonies.

 

DANCE DUETS

A series of trot plighting dance duets varying in style and diversity. A celebration of Myanmar's unity through diversity.

 

KARAN NEW YAR DANCE

The movements in this dance represent a vow by the Karen people of Myanmar. It is a declaration in song and dance that although life presents obstacles and hardships, together we will joyfully make it through. No matter what or who tries to separate us, we will keep our hands linked. Even if the world stops spinning, we will never desert each other.

 

WATER FESTIVAL DANCE

Our beloved New Year Water festival Song and Dance. It wishes you our best, good luck, good health and success for the coming year and through-out your life.
