A performance brought to you by Impression Wonders Arts Development Co. Ltd. from China, the “Encore” series is among their most well-known, and they have decided to tap into the rich history of Malacca. 😮
From China To Malacca
The Impression Wonders company was founded by renowned Chinese directors Zhang Yimou, Wang Chaoge, and Fan Yue. Together, they developed a new genre and an innovative art production, which consisted of live performances in natural settings. It isn’t just any performance as well, as audience as treated to a spectacular show of visual and auditory sensations including dances, light shows, acrobatic feats, and the such. Of course, by bringing the show to Malaysia, the show adapted locally, but is still directed by Wang Chaoge.
ncore Melaka stages the retelling of Malacca’s history dating back six centuries. Witness how Malacca was founded, and how it developed; expressed through 200 local performers. According to Encore Melaka’s official website, the show is “a performance that reflects a society that embraces diversity and inclusiveness”.

Members of the audience are in for a big treat, as the auditorium rotates – 360 degrees!
