French Art Festival Malaysia

I was at the P Ramlee theatre in Penang to watch a play called Men Without Shadows by Jean-Paul Sartre organized in conjunction with the French Art Festival that runs from 19th May – 24th June 2006. More information on the festival is available from http://www.french-art.org. I was there because I am avid supporter of the Arts scene in Penang and my sister Adeline Ong was the stage manager.

This play will be in KL at Panggung Bandaraya, Sultan Abdul Samad Building on June 2nd and 3rd at 8.30p.m. Admission is free.

The play was about during the Nazi occupation and war times. It tells the tale about 5 French revolution fighters being held and cruelly interrogated to reveal the location of their leader. All of them were in a situation that no matter what they do, they will die in the hands of their enemy.

This play was enjoyable with an amazing performance from the actors and I particularly like the set the most.

That's all for the moment.
