Shwe Man Chan Thar, a renowned dance troupe, will perform at a ceremony to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the founding of Sagaing at the end of this month.

“We are very proud to participate in this celebration. This is a unique celebration of Sagaing so we will focus on giving special performances related to Sagaing.  A play will be arranged by Ko Nan Win as part of our performances,” said Chan Thar, a member of the dance troupe.

One of the highlights is a play written by Chit Oo Nyo about the great kings that founded Sagaing. Directed by Nan Win, the play will feature Chan Thar, Min Yarzar, Nan Khin Hmway, Moe Pyae Pyae Maung and Then Than Soe in the leading roles.

The dance troupe is scheduled to perform in Sagaing on July 27 and 28.
