I get excited whenever I hear that a performance, arts, music or film festival is being organized in Kuala Lumpur. I've not had the privilege to organize one (yet!) but when I have a bit of free time, I like to let out the arty farty spirit in me by attending these events. I enjoy watching the performances and learning how these events are organized so that I'm prepared to organize future events while being more careful about potential hiccups which are bound to happen.
Anyway, if you are like me and enjoy art festivals, you're in luck! There's one starting today at The Pavilion!
The Kakiseni International Arts Festival is a five-day extravaganza of whimsical artistry proudly presented by Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad and Kakiseni. Featuring Malaysian and International award-winning performing arts showcases; visual art installations; busking by lyrical poets, singer songwriters, bands and international workshops, all to conclude with a street parade at Bukit Bintang in celebration of Malaysia Day 16th September. Performances are free for all. (ain't it great?)
I'm looking forward to watching the following two performances this coming Monday:

A spectacle with clown and body puppets, and composed by seven brief poetic and funny stories, this non-verbal show received the Children Jury Award for ‘Best Show’ at the TITIRI JAI, the International Puppet Festival of Tolosa (Spain) 2012, and has been presented in more than 30 international festivals in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
