On March 28th 2016, the Michigan Malaysian Students' Association (MiMSA) will be organizing the 7th annual Malaysian Cultural Night at the University of Michigan. The theme this year is 'Dihantui Mimpi', roughly translated in context to 'Daunting Dreams', and will see the Malaysian student body perform a theatrical play containing an array of dances that combines traditional and contemporary Malaysian culture. The dances will be a solo Indian dance, an orang asli bamboo dance, a Chinese fan dance, a Malay Zapin dance, and a lion dance.

After the performance, attendees will get to enjoy a free dinner reception at the Chemistry Atrium serving a variety of authentic Malaysian delicacies. A photobooth containing cultural elements of Malaysia will also be featured for guests to enjoy.

Admission and food are completely FREE!
