Suasana Cultural Centre (168422-W) is a Centre for the Arts and Culture founded by the renowned cultural activist, Datin Azanin Dato’ Ahmad. Under her leadership, the Centre is deeply committed to all aspects of the performing arts including in the areas of training and education, dance theatre performance, research and documentation, and the enhancement and promotion of our great cultural heritage. Over the years, Suasana has single-mindedly pursued a single objective to establish the contemporary definition of dance theatre in this country.

Based on the premise that the raw materials for a national cultural identity already exist in abundance, Suasana has aimed to uncover and bring to the fore relics of past traditions.  Since 1980, Datin Azanin has single-handedly pursued the objective of preserving, nurturing, developing and promoting Malaysia’s historical and cultural experiences. This undertaking is specifically targeted towards the revival and rebirth of our rich cultural heritage that is fast disappearing.

The Founder’s creative works has thus far successfully revived the beauty and essence of the many dying traditional art forms, such as the Makyong theatre, Shadow Puppet Theater,Silat’ (Malay martial arts of self-defense), ancient Royal Court Dances, classical music, and the like. The distinct Suasana form of theatre and performance presentation utilizes the raw materials of classical art forms and translates these onto stage, using the technical advances of modern theatre with specially choreographed movements of dance and music arrangements. The creative works, efforts and the achievements of the Centre have gained both national and international recognition, stature and repute.
