Lights, rhythm and the fantastical coalesced to intrigue and delight visitors at the Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival (YSDAF) 2016. 

Over 20 August and 21 August this year, more than 100 activities ranging from workshops, performances, drum circles, art market, film screenings, exhibitions and installations were held at klpac, Kuala Lumpur to enthrall and beguile the Malaysian audience. 

A total of 15,000 arts enthusiasts graced the event and soaked up all that was on offer.

Shows such as Shakespeare’s Men, Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Wayang Kulit Purwo and Bulan Separa Penuh teased the hearts and minds of visitors.

Shakespeare’s Men featured four actors bringing 30 characters from the Bard of Avon’s plays to life, accompanied by a five-piece ensemble led by music director U-En Ng.
Local bands and musicians such as OAG, Nice Stupid Playground, Azmyl Yunor, Golden Mammoth, Liyana Fizi, The Impatient Sisters and Nastia captivated visitors with their brands of music ranging from whimsical to melancholy.

 Numerous workshops on creative writing, dances, public speaking, speech and drama promised to draw in the occasional bystander into a heady mix of self-awareness and self-actualisation.

This year, Yayasan Sime Darby also organised a community outreach programme called Wayang Shakespeare Sekolah in May.

The workshop catered to students around the Klang Valley and melded the traditional wayang kulit art form with the works of Shakespeare.

It was a hit with the students, some of whom admitted that they never had an opportunity to delve into Shakespeare’s plays prior to attending the workshop.

Visitors were also treated to poetry recitals by Flynn Jamal, art installations such as Lunar Peaks by Suzy Sulaiman, dance performances such as Memories by Lau Beh Chin and other mesmerising performances.

With such a dizzying array of sounds, movement and performances seen this year, fans can look forward to the next YSDAF 2018 for more fascinating works of art.
