Here's an important question for week five (21-27 Aug) of the George Town Festival: how can you dance if you’re lying down? Find out by watching 6 and 8 (25-26 Aug), two of acclaimed choreographer Tao Ye’s dance series. Yes, the numbers are the names of the series.

Be a voyeur of a date in The Italian Restaurant (26-27 Aug) and find out what happens to a man that must live between fiction and non-fiction; or watch the classic vampire movie Nosferatu (26-27 Aug) with a new, live score.

Enjoy the angelic voices of the Gonville & Gaius College Choir in O For The Wings Of A Dove (22 Aug), which will be one of their songs, or check out traditional Taiwanese spoken-word storytelling and ballad singing, called Liam Kua, in What Are You Singing (25-26 Aug). There’s also Potehi: Elegance and Explosions from Taiwan (25-26 Aug) that tells two historical tales through potehi glove puppets.

Culture-wise, don’t miss out on the Eurasian Heritage Fiesta (26-27 Aug), where you can experience Eurasian food, music, dance, photos and storytelling, as well as a Q&A session; while A Feast of Korean Classics by Imbangul (27 Aug) highlights the best of Korean folk music with pansori, fan dance and more.
