Kakiseni is a name that is no stranger to those involved in the performing and creative arts industries in Malaysia.
Their website promotes shows, auditions, and all sorts of art-related events, as well as provides a wealth of information on people, places, and anything that has to do with the arts.
In other words, Kakiseni act as as a cultural directory of everything related to music, film, dance, theatre, literature and visual arts in Kuala Lumpur and around the country.
This year, Kakiseni will be organizing a festival: a one-week-long celebration of stage shows, live music, street happenings, and anything artsy that’ll entice your senses. The Kakiseni Festival 2013 will be held at Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur from April 22 to May 1.
Kakiseni promises a whirlwind of artistic experiences as you “cry at theatre tragedies by trailblazers like Jo Kukathas and Loh Kok Man, curated by stage impresarios Moo Siew Keh and Ben Cutler”. Plus, there’ll be a whole lot of international acts gracing the stage, and a bunch of surprises for everyone who attends the festival.
Some of the international acts include the famous entertainer Carlo Jacucci as well as the two-person music-assisted noir epics of Joe Bone and Ben Roe. The festival will also include workshops and discussions for those who want to get more involved.
The festival will auspiciously end with the 10th Annual BOH Cameronian Arts Awards, which is the Malaysian equivalent of the Tony Awards.
It is a celebration that will be exploding with amazing energy, a great way to spend family time or a smart alternative to being bored at home. Plus it’ll be a fun means to learn more about the arts in Malaysia and around the world.
One of Kakiseni’s aims is to make the arts more accessible to everyone. So, make sure you mark your calendars and take full advantage of this festival. A full listing and more details of everything that will take place during the festival will be placed on Kakiseni’s website at www.kakiseni.com. Be sure to check it out and keep yourself updated!
