Movie Night

We live a thousand lives through books, and through movies. The cozy ambience and large projector screen in Kluang Days make this an ideal spot for a movie night out. This was a private event so it felt even more intimate and sensational. What should we watch next?

Fly me the moon, let me play among the stars, let me see what spring is like on... Jupiter and Mars. Music moves. Music touches. Music heals. This was our first live performance after 5 months of hibernation/lockdown. Thank you everyone for being here on this special night. Thank you Tay Cher Siang and Weng Wai for the wonderful show.

Where Souls Meet

Here's a corner to shine bright and tell tales. That's why we have three good friends from different corners of the country to gather here in the lovely town of Kluang, where their souls meet and dance. Our souls feel nourished tonight.

Seven Nights

The first collaboration partner of "Kluang Days 55 Days" project was the young but introspective stage theater team @FLOAT theatre. When we read the original script "Seven Nights" for the first time, we were so excited and had since been anticipating for this drama. How would this young team express their thoughts about society and the world? They spent the night narrating the seven-night stories that happened among seven young men and women in a small house in Florence, Italy in 1384. It was a remarkable performance.
