NUANSA 2018 aims to shine the spotlight on Minangkabau culture, one of the thousands of cultures in Indonesia. The show will be a musical production that is supported by various cultural aspects of Minangkabau cultures such as randai, native costumes, as well as sets. Randai itself is an authentic form of performance originated from Minangkabau that is used in special occasions such as weddings or grand events. NUANSA 2018 will adopt randai as one of the key culture of Minangkabau and it will help to bring authenticity towards the production itself. Randai is an interesting performance which highlights emotions and conflicts with its rapid movements and fast-beat percussions while the dancers sing and shout in ethnic languages. This unique form of dance will definitely bring new experience to our audience. Moreover, to ensure the quality of the production, NUANSA 2018 will work together with Singapore Minangkabau Association (SMA) as the cultural advisor to ensure the authenticity of our cultural elements.
