Triple Frontiers, which marks the first time Sutra Dance Theatre is staging the works of female gurus, showcases the talents of a combination of 18 female and six male dancers.

A Gala Fundraising Night show will happen on April 9 at 8pm at the PJ Civic Centre Auditorium on Jalan Yong Shook Lin in PJ New Town. There will also be a show on April 10 and 11 at 8.30pm.

“We value your support and confidence by celebrating with us this live dance-theatre experience, which we have missed so much,” said Ramli.

He added: “Take note that our season is SOP compliant. The show is going to be great and will definitely lift your Covid Blues.”
