Scheduled to take place from 31 August to 1 October, DiverseCity’s KL International Arts Festival 2017will showcase acclaimed and up-and-coming artistes from Malaysia and around the world.
The event will celebrate the arts through music, dance, theatre, visual arts and literature. A highlight of the music performances during the KL International Arts Festival 2017is the open-air ASEAN and DBKL 50th anniversary concert in Panggung Anniversari, Lake Gardens. The concert will feature local and ASEAN artistes who will perform hits across the decades set to new arrangements amidst the lush park setting.
Visitors interested in visual arts will have the privilege of getting up close with one of the key drivers of art development in Malaysia – Yeoh Jin Leng – in a special retrospective exhibition.
Returning to local shores due to popular demand is playwright Wolfe Bowart who will present Letter’s End this year; while children will certainly enjoy the hilarious and interactive performance entitled Bon Voyage, right on the platform of Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTM).
There are also a host of other exciting performances and forums taking place in various venues around Kuala Lumpur including the Auditorium DBKL, Panggung Bandaraya, Nu Sentral, and the Damansara Performing Arts Center, to name a few, and the KL International Arts Festival 2017will include both ticketed and free events as well.
