After indulging your taste buds, treat yourself to an informative post-meal walk! Explore Southeast Asia’s rich dance cultures, where every movement tells a story, at Dance from Head to Toe.

End your day in a journey through time, movement and music with SUARA / ORO RUA!

It merges Māori's Te Kore concept with Earth's sonic history, accompanied by original music by Safuan Johari and dance choreography by Eddie Elliott, performed by Singaporean musicians and Aotearoa dancers.
