The Gruffalo by London’s Tall Stories

The tale of Gruffalo is beloved by children all over the world and for the first time, all the way from London, Tall Stories’ musical adaptation of the multi-award winning children’s book, THE GRUFFALO, comes to Penang to the delight of children and parents alike.

Join Mouse as he trails off deep into the dark woods in search of some delicious nuts for lunch and encounters three residents of the woods who look to him as a fitting meal. There is “the smirking, wheeler-dealer Fox; an eccentric, retired Woodland Air Force General Owl; and the maraca-shaking, party animal Snake” but none of them are a match to Mouse’s wit or cunning. As Mouse turns them off with horrifying tales of The Gruffalo, his monster friend (an imaginary one, of course), he is in for a big surprise when he comes face-to-face with the big, burly Gruffalo. How Mouse escapes from this is brilliantly acted out in Tall Stories’ wonderful and magical production that has drawn in rave reviews.

Told through witty songs, brilliant acting and whimsical story-telling, The Gruffalo is directed by Tall Stories’ co-founder Olivia Jacobs. Besides rave reviews and being the toast of London’s West End, this is a production not-to-be-missed as it taps into the creative and whimsical world of childhood imagination to bring a wholesome and entertaining work of theatre for the whole family.

The Restaurant of Many Orders

The acclaimed Japanese director and choreographer Hiroshi Koike brings us his latest work, The Restaurant of Many Orders which is part of the Koike Hiroshi Bridge Project. Said to be a physical theatre piece, this performance takes from Kenji Miyazawa’s famous children’s story of the same title and revolves around the theme of human and nature and the relationship between the two.

The Restaurant of Many Orders promises to be an enthralling piece of performance art in the vein of Koike’s earlier project, Pappa Tarahumara, lacing  traditional and contemporary dance with whimsical and surreal story-telling.

IndiePG is back!

After a successful and much talked about first run in 2012, Penang’s biggest independent music fest is back with a fantastic line up of bands and four FREE workshops!

In its ‘About’ page on Facebook, IndiePG claims to provide  musicians “with a platform to showcase [their] artistic talents outside the usual, creativity-limiting mainstream venues to an audience hungry for new and original music.” This is a bold statement, but this collaborative platform by IndiePG and penangpac is not afraid to be bold and loud, and judging by its line up of bands / musicians for this year’s event, it rightly deserves to be.
