George Town Festival 2015: An exploration of community and humanity


This year’s festival sets out to discover who – and what – we are.

Since its inauguration in 2010, George Town Festival (GTF) has grown into a dynamic month-long event that showcases and highlights a multiplicity of spaces, people and art, as well as acclaimed local and international performances. This year’s big name highlights are among the festival’s most spectacular yet, bringing the audience into worlds far different from their own, while making them intrinsically relatable.

Through their various artistic mediums, these shows’ performers visually introduce concepts, ideas and cultures, and even statistics, to their viewers, asking them to reflect on their meaning in their own lives.
