After just over a week of intensive working on the stage, we were ready for the opening party on Tuesday night. While we were away at Penjaringan kampung the day before, many of our collaborators from the neighbourhood continued working on the roof and tiling the road in front of it. We also added some lighting and coloured LEDs around the edge of the stage.
We had a huge turnout – it seemed like almost everyone from Tongkol, Kerapu and Lodan was present. There was a barbecue with grilled fish, singing and dancing, several dance performances by local children in costume and finally some karaoke to end the night.
This time instead of photos we have a short video of the opening party for you.
