You may have missed some, or even all, of the events. As consolation, Penang Monthly herewith provides you with a (subjective) recap of some events from this year’s George Town Festival (GTF).

The Metamorphosis, Android Version
In France sometime in the near future, as war rages in the background, Gregor wakes up one morning to find that he’s (1) physically unable to get out of bed, and (2) a robot.
Then his family finds out.
The Metamorphosis is a play entirely told in French, the result of a collaboration between the Seinendan Theatre Company and Osaka University’s Robot Theatre Project, where they re-imagine the classic Franz Kafka novella of the same name, substituting the insect for a Highlights of George Town Festival 2015 robot. The robot is controlled remotely behind the scenes while very real actors engage with it.
