I Can Compose and Recite Syair!
Saturday, 3 February 2018
9:30am – 11:00am
Level 5, Imagination Room
Facilitators: Dr Sa’eda Buang and Dr Kartini Anwar
This workshop will be conducted in English and Malay. Participants must understand and be able to speak simple Malay.
Syair is a form of traditional Malay poetry that is made up of quatrains. Unlike another poetic form, pantun, each line of every stanza in syair contributes to the formation of a unified idea or story.
Participants will be introduced to the functions and basic features of syair. They will also encounter various melodious forms of syair recitations based on the content and intent of the syair. Look forward to composing at least two verses of syair and reciting them!
