Events in Kuala Lumpur from 6 to 12 January 2020:
Alya Hatta is an emerging artist who is exploring the bittersweet ups and downs of coming into adulthood with her collection, Playground. These artworks survey the emotions of her self-confessional life discography, like danger, love and joy. Hatta’s hopes for her art is that it will connect with others who share parallel experiences. ZHAN Art is open from Monday to Sunday from 11am to 7pm, but closed for the Chinese New Year holidays.
It’s a celebration of all things jazzy this weekend. Fantastic performances from homegrown and international acts aside, a highlight is the annual Jazz Talent Competition for young local talents. There will be free workshops conducted by jazz educators, so expect the festival to be both entertaining and educational.
Crackhouse Comedy is stepping into 2020 with a new concept of work-in-progress shows. Intended for the big-guns of comedy to try out new material, you, as a crowd member, will get to witness the shaping of their sets. The shows are interactive in that they’re a chance for the comedian and crowd to discover hidden punchlines and premises. Additionally, lucky audience members stand a chance to win free tickets to the Weekend International Shows.
Make this the start of an organised year with help from bullet journal connoisseurs, Summarie. This workshop will be hugely beneficial to beginners as it goes through the basics of bullet journalling, teaches you how to streamline tasks, and create templates that cater to your daily life – with pretty doodles and colours. Light refreshments are provided, but you will need to bring your own blank bullet journal.
