About the market

Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) presents AMBOI! BABA MEETS NYONYA, celebrating its first performing arts festival inspired by the illustrious story of peranakan culture.

The word peranakan in Malay simply means ‘locally born’ and is Malaysia & Singapore’s most fascinating hybrid culture, descended from unions between foreign merchants (China & South India) with local women. This month-long festival aims to capture the essence of locally-born works which makes Malaysia known for its melting-pot of cultures.

This year, DPAC festival team is proud to highlight some of our nation’s prominent art practitioners from various performance practices in theatre, media, visual art and dance as well as guest speakers from academic, media and business. There will be various talks, exhibitions and performances programmed weekly between April 3-27.
