SHOW­STOP­PERS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture Bazaar -

First held in 2009 to show­case Pe­nang’s thriv­ing art and cul­ture scene, the an­nual Ge­orge Town Fes­ti­val is back for an­other thrilling in­ter­na­tional edi­tion. “We aim to make this an en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for ev­ery­one, of­fer­ing a di­verse pal­ette of world-class events that im­me­di­ately trans­forms Ge­orge Town into a borderless stage cel­e­brat­ing art, dance, cul­ture, and her­itage in ex­cit­ing and cre­ative ways,” says fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Joe Sidek. From Au­gust 1 to 31, raw, kitschy venues such as cor­ner cof­fee shops will be clev­erly con­verted into gal­leries, the­atres, and per­for­mance spa­ces. Here, a se­lec­tion of the high­lights to book for. www.george­town­fes­ti­val.com
