Penang Dance Troupe at Adelaide Georgetown week

It was claimed that a dance by a Penang dance troupe as part of the Malaysian Ministry of Culture’s events in Adelaide featured “performances in which the dancers exposed their bodies”. In response, a Penang State Executive Councillor for Tourism, Youth and Sports denied the allegations, saying, “the peformance was tailored for the Australian audience and also to show Penang’s ability to handle Western dances”. Straits Times, “Ministry to probe allegations Penang dance troupe put up obscene show in Australia.”
