When The Dark Hits Me is inspired by the late British contemporary playwright Sarah Kane, 4.48 Psychosis. There is no specific plot in this play, which is a type of stream of consciousness drama. The main story is about a mental illness patient's inner struggle. He is surrounded by medical staff all day long. In the process, he has not been really understood. This is his sincere confession to the world, conveying his love to people in an extremely cruel way.

It is absolutely exciting when we learned that T.H.E Dance Company from Singapore is making Kuala Lumpur as the first stop for their SEA Tour, as an outreach to support the local dance and performance art scene of the selected SEA countries. 

Celebrating the spirit of kongsi, we have invited 6 Malaysian local dancers and musician to have a cross-over with the dance group from Singapore in a 4-day improvisation lab to come up with a site specific piece echoing the concept of Hollow Body. The exciting piece that cross discipline and geographical boundary will be presented on 23/11 and 24/11, along with two other pieces from T.H.E Dance Company, 'Pure' and 'Present' .

KongsiKL believes that the process of making art is as important as the final product itself. For the curious ones who would like to see the improvisation process and dialogue between the artists from both Malaysia and Singapore, our doors are open!


Alongside the performance:

1. 'Hollow Body' improvisation lab (open for public viewing)
21-23 November 2018; 3.30pm-6.00pm
What's happening behind the scene? Curious about dancers' process? Come witness their process!

2. Contemporary dance technique workshop (for elementary and intermediate dancers)
24 November 2018; 3.00pm-4.30pm
Instructor: Ng Zu You
More details will be released next week!

National Bandits - A Beautiful Mistake
Mayaw Biho | 2000 | 56min | DVD

The elderly Bununs of Tung-Pu have habitually referred to workers at the Vu Mountain National Park as 'national bandits' instead of 'national park employees.' In the eyes of these old Bununs, the designation of this land as national park has robbed them of most of their ancestral territories, leaving only a very small portion for them to live and farm. To them, this is what bandits do.


Fuzu, a Story of Love
Salone Ishahavut | 2013 | 60min | HD

In 1997, Pu-u Akuyana resigned from an advertising firm in metropolitan Taipei, to seek a new life as she returned to her hometown Laiji Community. Putting academic training she received in the fine arts to use, Pu-u embarks on a creative journey. Through art, she continues to visualize wild hogs around the wilderness to watch over the land, and people of Laiji Community.

Wah Lian Gudang Sales / Community Outreach

SOS! Wah Lian Wooden Machinery Factory that has opened its doors in Salak South New Village since 1970 was abruptly destroyed by the violent thunderstorm that hit Kuala Lumpur a few days ago.

Since the incident, Uncle Hui, the devastated owner of Wah Lian, has decided that this is the time for his retirement. However, there are still some unfinished furniture and parts in the factory, which will go to waste if he fails to find a new owner for them.

So here is how you can help! You can drop by KongsiKL and adopt some beautifully crafted furniture parts made by Uncle Hui and his craftsmen, which is priced at only RM5 – RM100! Let’s help to raise fund for Uncle Hui and the other wood masters!

* Note: Delivery service is NOT provided.

We understand that you are unsure if you have the right tools or sufficient skills to make a complete furniture out of the parts, or finding other ways to use them.

Kongsi Kolab is here to help! Lost & Found by Arcadia KLwill be here if you want to know how to start, or book an appointment with them to use the equipment in KongsiKL . There you go, a chance to help our neighbours in need, and also an opportunity to pick up a new hobby!
