GTLF 2013: Poetry at Lunch

If you are a fan of spoken word, you probably would have heard about Say It Like You Mean It. Widely known as SILYMI, this little collective of Penang musicians, poets, storytellers and other performance artists has made quite the waves in the local art circuit from its very first outing in Jan 2012.

In this year’s edition of the George Town Literary Festival, SILYMI makes an appearance (more like two) with the festival’s Poetry at Lunch segment. These Boots are Made for Walking, which takes place on the second day of the festival is “a collection of introspective, observational and amusing solo, duet and group spoken word pieces, exploring the landscape of objectification, colonialism and the nation state using the body of a woman as the map is a collective of Penang musicians, poets, storytellers and other performance artists” (GTLF).

The second Poetry at Lunch session is Bad Poets. Described as “a showcase of storytelling, inherited tales of great kingdoms and poetic stories in search of history and identity” that challenges “accepted notions and pre-conceptions of literature, poetry, history and identity”, Bad Poets takes place on the third and last day of GTLF.

Open to the public and FREE, Poetry at Lunch is not about to dish out any run-of-the-mill performance, that is for sure. If thought-provoking art is right up your alley, Poetry at Lunch might just  be the thing you have been looking for. Don’t just take our word for it, come and experience it yourself.

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.
