Progresif Cellular is hosting its fourth Cultural Night at the Jerudong Park Amphitheatre on Saturday at 7.30 pm, where members of the public will be treated to multicultural performances from around the world.

The event is held in conjunction with His Majesty the Sultan’s 72nd birthday celebrations.

Audiences can expect a showcase of cultural diversity expressed through a series of performances from traditional Bruneian dance, to performances by the Chinese, Indonesian, Thai, Malaysian, Indian, Filipino, Pakistani, New Zealand and British communities in the sultanate.

The event will bring more than 120 performers to the stage and culminate in a final performance entitled ‘Innovation (Animation) Dance’ — a dance that visually expresses the intersection of technology with arts and culture.

Admission to the event is free of charge and is open to the public. 

Devin Edwards, chief marketing officer of the telco said: “The cultural night demonstrates our dedication to arts and culture which is one of the four pillars under our corporate social responsibility programme.”
