Uplift Myanmar’s performing arts for national integrity

Articles

The 24th Myanmar Traditional Cultural Performing Arts Competitions of 2023 heralds a significant day for the nation’s traditional and cultural performers. This event provides a stage for the display of their remarkable skills and talents, encompassing singing, dancing, song composition, and the mastery of musical instruments.
It is not just the government, but the entire populace that encourages these performers in their mission to preserve Myanmar’s rich heritage of traditional performing arts. The government, in alignment with its objectives for the 24th performing arts competition, seeks to elevate national prestige and integrity while safeguarding cultural heritage and national identity.

Myanmar’s traditional performing arts serve as powerful tools for elevating the prestige and integrity of the nation. In return, people from all walks of life must rally behind these performers, providing unwavering support to foster the creation and innovation of fine arts, thereby burnishing Myanmar’s image on the global stage.

These competitions serve multiple purposes, with a particular focus on exploring, preserving, and elevating the traditional cultural heritage of performing arts among Myanmar’s diverse ethnic groups. They also aim to cultivate an appreciation for this heritage among the younger generation and foster the propagation of the national spirit. These competitions actively support measures within the realm of national culture, contributing to the development, peace, and tranquillity of the State.
Presently, many young individuals are drawn to foreign cultures, often without a comprehensive understanding or appreciation of their own cultural heritage. This phenomenon has led to a decline in the appreciation of Myanmar’s theatrical performances, marionette presentations, song renditions, dance arts, and the significant efforts put into composing songs and playing musical instruments.
The annual performing arts competitions offer a glimmer of hope, as they provide an opportunity for the emergence of a new generation of performers. Simultaneously, they rekindle the flames of Myanmar’s traditional arts and instil a passion for performing arts among the country’s youth. Importantly, these competitions are open to participants from various regions and states, emphasizing skills and artistry over the pursuit of awards.
Performers not only strive to preserve traditional performing arts but also inject their own creativity into their craft to captivate audiences. Dramas and plays play a vital role in entertaining spectators, showcasing the ingenuity of artists. These artistes have created masterpieces in songs, dances, and music, demonstrating exceptional skills in song composition. Myanmar’s forefathers, drawing inspiration from foreign poems and songs, transformed them into fine arts in the Myanmar language, all while preserving the essence of Myanmar’s traditional culture.
Myanmar’s traditional performing arts serve as powerful tools for elevating the prestige and integrity of the nation.
