River Sutra offers a stream of many genres of dances, moving away from Sutra’s  overtly classical and seriously modern to something more accessible and engaging for the general audience but with enough bite of content for the high-brow. 

Artistic director of Sutra Dance Theatre, Ramli Ibrahim, strives to create an atmosphere of positive energy, bringing in the cooling colours of brooks and mango shoots that signify warmth, togetherness and inclusivity of cross-cultural streams and perspectives.

Thus, River Sutra is conceived - a river of many cultural influences and cross-currents which made up the Malaysian mélange. River Sutra explores spring time moods with impressionistic dances that defy staid classification of genres. Apparent will be influences, not only of bharatanatyam and odissi, but also of Malay, Javanese and pop cultures. The Malaysian identity, as time goes by, is also evolving. What is ‘Malaysian’ is an enigma – it is neither ‘only this or only that’

River Sutra celebrates the Malaysian cultural diversity and many sub-identities which make up that One National Identity of a Malaysia which defies absolute categorization.

Sutra Foundation

Sutra Foundation, a bastion of traditional and contemporary arts, is bequeathed to Malaysia by one of its most celebrated sons, Ramli Ibrahim. It carries into the future the thread of his vision and contribution to the Malaysian arts scene. Sutra Foundation strives to develop the breadth and depth of Malaysian performing and visual arts through stimulating the creative spirit of cross-cultural Malaysia.

Various cultures come together here to forge a unique ‘sutra’ bond that fosters a universal yet distinctively Malaysian interpretation of the arts. This will be apparent in Sutra Foundation’s new production for 2013 – River Sutra.
