Neighbourly exchange of arts and laughs

Comedians, dancers and artists from Malaysia will perform at festival here

Published on Jun 11, 2014 8:04 PM
 

From the best of comedy in print and on stage to little-known art forms, a wide spectrum of Malaysian arts and culture will be on display at a 10-day festival.

The fifth annual CausewayEXchange festival opens on Friday, with the hope of fostering closer ties between the Singaporean and Malaysian art communities.

Some of the headline acts this year include popular cartoonist Lat, who will be part of World Lit, a series of talks and panel discussions; and stand-up comedian Harith Iskander, whose show at the festival celebrates his 22nd year in the business.

But audiences can also expect off-the-beaten-track sights and sounds.
