Malaysian Design Archive have collected propaganda posters, magazines and everyday objects that go back as far as the late 19th century to survey our nation’s visual culture. This exhibition gives us a look into the evolution of the cultural shifts our nation has seen over the past century or so and how it has shaped us today.
Le French Festival is back for the 16th time in Malaysia. In collaboration with GSC Cinemas, they present an extensive range of French titles including ‘La Vache’, ‘Rosalie Blum’, ‘Nos Futurs’ and more. There will also be performances and exhibitions by French artists happening around KL over the course of the festival. Flea markets, cooking classes, champagne and cognac tastings are in the calendar too.
Uni Per Arts, which is the University of Nottingham’s (Malaysia campus) performing arts platform will be staging their rendition of one of Miguel de Cervantes’ greatest works, ‘Don Quixote: A Man of La Mancha’. The story tells the tale of a knight and the quest of a man that has been deluded by fictitious stories of chivalry and valour.
Watch Harish Shankar, Janet Lee, Samantha de Lune, Izen Kong, Peter Ong and Mak Chi Hoe bring to life the works of Broadway legends Rodgers and Hammerstein. Expect to hear their renditions of songs from hit musicals The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, The King and I, and more.
Sold out shows are nothing new to West End star Sarah-Louise Young. She returns to Theatre Lounge Cafe with a brand new character comedy show, ‘Je Regrette!’. Accompanying her on stage will be Michael Roulston, her writing and performing partner. This award-winning show will only be in KL for three nights, so reserve your tickets soon to not miss out on the fun.
What better way to enjoy your dinner than to have it while laughing your socks off. Taking the stage at Wonder Upstairs is Rizal van Geyzel, known for his hilarious observations of Malaysian life. Also there as the show's hosts are funnymen Kavin Jayaram and Phoon Chi Ho; comedy is in no short supply here. You'll also get a 15 percent discount on your F&B bill if you purchase tickets to the show.
