ENCORE MELAKA, in collaboration with WYC Dance Studio and Arts Centre, is seeking talented performing artists to join their vibrant team.

After a four-year hiatus triggered by the pandemic, ENCORE MELAKA, Southeast Asia’s architectural marvel with the region’s first 360-degree rotating auditorium, is gearing up for a new season of world-class theatrical productions. This iconic venue, first opened in July 2018, is renowned for hosting the overseas stage performance of China’s Impression Series, a highly acclaimed production by renowned directors Zhang Yimou, Fan Yue, and Wang Chaoge.


ENCORE MELAKA’s 2,000-seat theatre has featured over 200 artists performing against a backdrop of mesmerizing water scenes and immersive projection mapping. Now, with tourists returning and Melaka being a popular cultural destination, ENCORE MELAKA is seeking new local talent to join their vibrant productions.
