George Town Festival
Heralded in the International New York Times as one of Asia’s hottest up-and-coming arts events, Penang’s George Town Festival (GTF) returns this August with an unbeatable lineup of local and international performances, exhibitions and events. Three of this year’s highlights will be making their Asian debut, including the Spanish hip hop/flamenco fusion dance theatre Titanium, the Australian-made, highly choreographed musical and dance feature AM I, and the Iranian experimental theatre Slow Sound of Snow. Berlin’s Rimini Protokoll will make their Southeast Asian premiere with one of the festival’s most anticipated shows, 100% Penang. In keeping with its mission to prioritize community initiatives, GTF will introduce two street festivals to this year’s line-up. ATM @ Beach Street, or All Things Malaysian, will celebrate the country’s rich cultural tapestry with a full day of pop-up shops, installations, dancers, live music and more. Butterworth Fringe Festival, or BFF, will ferry the festival over to the mainland, giving festival-goers a chance to see and experience a wide range of performers while enjoying a different view of Penang.
