Peter B. High

After a career as a newspaper journalist, university professor and award-winning author, Peter B. High settled into the Melaka cultural scene as a local writer and an active member of Team In-Fest (a Melaka-based group of artists and spontaneous performers).

As a side-event during MAPFest three years ago, he conceived and directed a visual “Spectacular”, featuring a 34 meter-long “Dragon of the Mountain” sweeping down a segment of Bukit St. Paul. Last year he was part of another side-event: a two-man performance called “The Time Keeper and the Homuncular Soul.” This year, he has concocted a boogie-woogie-bopping procession of spontaneous performers called “The Parameswara Boogie!”
