KLPac Open Day

Happening this Sunday (18 Jan) from 10 am - 5pm at KLPac

Taken off the KLPac website:
If you're new to this Open Day thing, it's something KLPac started in 2008 and it was an absolute blast! We packed in 5,000 people and brought together some 200 arts practitioners.

Basically, it's one whole day jam packed with FREE performances, visual art installations, theatre and cultural games, arts workshops and demonstrations, staged readings, show previews, film screenings and, of course, the ever popular guided tours.

And if that's not enough to keep you occupied there will be some 60 over stalls on the lawn selling all kinds of interesting goodies and great finds courtesy of the Bijou Bazaar team (that's where you'll find Mimpi)!


NEW! The open day kicks off with a lion dance @ 9.30am

Dont' miss the finals of the FIRST, EVER KLPac Idol! Find out who has what it takes - the charm, the personality and, most importantly, the talent to win this prized title.

There'll also be a dance performance in Pentas 1 itself by rising choreographer / dancer Aris Kadir...


Julian Mokhtar, Azmyl Yunor, Young KL Singers, KL Children's Choir, bellydancers from Sirocco Secret Dance, Kayla Maxey of Flamenco Malaysia, klpac sinfonietta, Indian Cultural Drum Group (Sentul & Jln Ipoh), Persatuan Silat Cekak Pusaka Hanafi and heaps more


Fun activities to dive into in the studios are (get this!) Theatre Games for Singles by Mark Beau de Silva, A Movement Story Session for kids by the academy @ klpac, preview of 2Somes by Chris Ling, Ritual Theatre workshop by Nanci Taynor, physical theatre workshop by Helena Foo and staged readings of plays by Redza Minhat, Fared Ayam AND MORE!

Come, check out your local arts centre and find out what is has to offer, meet artistes, ask questions, participate, discover... Nowhere else will you see such a wide array of arts performances and activities in one single day!

The Sentul Park Koi Centre will also be joining this Open Day and there'll be hawker fare at reasonable prices.

If you're early, you might be able to catch some really amazing ticketing promotions for upcoming shows @ KLPac.
