Peacock Dance

Malaysia's pretty small so most cultural performance takes place in temples for free. Most students are in it for the love of the art and for the love of performing - but most teachers are in it to make a quick buck. Sad actually.

 

This was a folk dance presentation during a festival - the peacock dance (mayil attam), the faux horse dance (poikall kuthirai), the kollatam (folk dance)
