Pang's New Arts Space

Pang sent me this ad. and since it's a venue I'd like to use myself in time to come ...

Oh no! Not another arts centre!

But seriously:

Venue: 2nd Floor, The Annexe @ Central Market, KL
Date: Wed, 17 Jan 2007
Time: 8.30pm

As you might have heard, along with the upgrading of Central Market, The Annexe @ Central Market has been converted into an arts centre. Yes, an arts centre right smack in the heart of the city. About time, eh? Over the last few months, we have discovered wonderful spaces within the building that can now be shared by artists for exhibitions, performances, workshops, multidisciplinary projects, and all things practical and impractical.

17.1.7 – Malam Buka Panggung is to introduce the arts centre to the arts community of KL. We would like to invite you to come and see the possibilities at hand and to join us in celebrating... no, not just another arts centre, but a way of life!

On this special night, The Annexe @ Central Market is blessed with performances by the following artistic and spiritual guardians:

Marion D' Cruz
Hishamuddin Rais
Carburetor Dung
Lee Swee Keong
Fahmi Fadzil
Mohd Kamrulbahri Hussin
Hardesh Singh
Juliana Yasin
Ray Langenbach
and ASWARA students, under Joseph Gonzales, performing the Buka Panggung from Mak Yong

Refreshments provided. See you there!

About time indeed Sharon! At last, an accessible venue for patrons & artists! Getting to KLPAC is such a pain. And what a perfect venue, next to one of the last bastions of KL heritage. I am so looking forward to this and still can't believe something sensible has happened for a change. Congrats to all concerned. So can I go check it out on the 17th? I hope to see you there.

Happy to hear the culture scene is growing everywhere.

Also, wanted to wish you good luck on the TBR challenge. I just finished my first read -a great one to say the least - and thank goodness! I wanted to start 2007 with a bang ;)

With its proximity to Liquid, perhaps it should be called Malam Buka Punggung? :-)))))

bibliobibuli said...

sympozium - it should be a good evening. why not come along for the craic?

lil ms d said...

what is a craic?

i hope there'll be cute boys there! :D

bibliobibuli said...

craic is an irish word it's nice to appropriate because there is no english equivalent. it means fun, nicely gossipy goings-on, being in the middle of things ...

okay cute boys, please show up for md d!

animah said...

Sharon, Does that mean you are not going to Muntaj's?

sympozium said...
