What we have been up to…
July 26, 2018 | Art in Schools
The KLIAF believes strongly in the benefits of exposing children to the arts at a young age. Therefore, in 2017, we commissioned a new work – “A Tale That Must Be Told” (adapted from Shakespeare’s Macbeth by the KL Shakespeare Players), specially for 7-11 year olds.
Encouraging response to this interactive play inspired us to organize a post festival school tour under our Duta Kecil programme from 8 Feb-6 April this year.
The Kuala Lumpur International Arts Festival is proud to announce that by the end of 2018, this specially commissioned play would have seen a total of 40+ performances. We are very grateful for the support from Yayasan Hasanah which has enabled us to bring the drama, intrigue & tragedy of this dark Shakespearean classic to 1,800 students at 9 government schools to date.
