Exchanging cultures and communicating through the arts; a connection between islands.
Isle to Isle brings Penang and Taiwan together, as well as the forth dynamic, creative content and profoundly intriguing cultural performances to George Town Festival 2019. Over a curated series of energetic programmes anchored in everyday life, the public will be guided to easily access the arts through familiar subject matter, leading them to a complete immersion in the arts.
This year, Isle to Isle will return with more brilliantly creative programmes from 18 – 21 July 2019. Collaboratively presented by Taipei’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Penang City Eye, this edition of Isle to Isle will include the screening of Father, a documentary detailing the life of master puppeteer Chen Hsi-huang; a traditional puppet show infused with modern elements presented by Taipei Puppet Theater; a creative market hosting 14 indigenous labels from Taiwan; and a design forum congregating 6 of Taiwan’s top designers and curators.
