Look out Penang, the Singaporeans are coming!!! But don’t worry, this isn’t an armed invasion, it’s acultural invasion, or rather a cultural exchange.
Some of Singapore’s best entertainers, DJs, artists and writersare set to take George Town by storm this June as part of thefourth CausewayEXchange (CEX) arts festival.
CEX was created in 2010 to foster greater collaboration between Singaporeans and Malaysians through artistic, social and business activities. Last year, Singapore hosted the festivalwhich featured a variety of Malaysian artists and their literary, dance, comedy, theatre, and visual arts performances.
CEX runs from 20th to 23rd June this year at the George TownFestival 2013 (GTF2013), a month-long celebration of arts, heritage and culture in Penang, Malaysia. The festival originallystarted out as a celebration of heritage, arts and culture, in commemoration of George Town’s listing as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2009.
CEX is represented this year by Singaporean writers, poets, painters, TV personalities, comedians, musicians, and DJs. With electronic music club nights, contemporary Hainanese opera, edgy standup comedy shows, theatre performances, visual arts shows and literary readings, there will be something for everyone.
