Highlights of George Town Festival 2014


Here’s our pick of George Town Festival 2014’s hits and miss.

Circus Circus

Circus Circus, piecing together performances from Japan, Finland, Thailand and China, was brilliant indeed. Being a mesmerising manipulation of light and shadows and of the human form, it had something for everyone.

The first act was by Wrecking Crew Orchestra from Japan. The entire auditorium had to be in total darkness for the performance, as everyone held their breath. Suddenly, flashes of blue and yellow were seen on stage. The dancers wore “tron-suits” and the total effect was entrancing. I do not believe in magic, but this short five-minute performance made it very easy to believe in it. In fact, their famed YouTube videos do no justice to their real-life performance.
