With the theme of a Peranakan wedding, this dance drama describes how a kind-hearted Peranakan woman, Hui Niang, takes fate by its collar, and deal with life’s challenges with courage and determination, putting her wits and hard work to good use. The drama features a lively storyline, distinctive dance moves, acknowledging the legacy and reinvention of traditional culture in today’s Peranakan community.
At the 2014 National Day Rally, PM Lee praised DES for boldly creating a dance style for Southeast Asian Chinese. This October, DES will regale the audience with “Nyonya Wedding” – a beautiful, artistic presentation for Taiwan audiences.
