Wayang Kata IX
Wayang Kata began in Kuala Lumpur in 2006 as collaboration between the British Council and Jasmine Low and Jerome Kugan, of open mic events Doppelganger and Troubadours, as an attempt to popularise the spoken word.

Wayang Kata is now independently funded and will host its second installation in Penang, featuring a multi-lingual lineup of poets and spoken word performers in English, Bahasa Malaysia, Hokkien, Tamil and more!

Writers/Poets Robert Yeo (SG), Cyril Wong (SG), Jac SM Kee, Pam Handa, Elaine Foster, Melizarani T. Selva, Jerome Kugan, Ksatriya, Karina Bahrin and more.

Learn HOKKIEN Phrases

You'll need to know at least SOME Hokkien when visiting Penang. Islanders would display tremendous happiness when you can utter a few words in their local dialect.

Az Samad, guitarist & musician extraordinaire   Notice the orb-like lighting behind Az? This shall be the centre-point of the room, illuminating Illuminati who will perform at this very spot. We hope to bring artists from near and far to No. 15. And offer them a space that could help spur their dreams towards musicianship and masters of their craft. We're just the providers of the space and opportun
