Life Sdn Bhd: What It Means To Be Malaysian?

Day 1: 3.00 pm - 4.15 pm

Day 2: 3.00 pm - 4.15 pm

Pentas 2

Life Sdn Bhd has enjoyed a very long and exciting journey since 2004, a year after The Actors Studio @ Plaza Putra underneath Dataran Merdeka endured the floods.

After much thinking – Where Do We Go From Here – It dawned upon us that these are the trials, tribulations and challenges of life. You guessed it. Joe & Faridah gave birth to the Life Sdn Bhd series, beginning for the first 3 years with “What It Means to be a Malaysian”.

Of course there were many more pressing issues and so, Life Sdn Bhd went on to breast cancer, refugees, abuse, HIV, human trafficking, mental health. Each time, featuring real people with real stories on stage.

It has been 30 years since the floods and Life Sdn Bhd is going back full circle to “What It Means to be Malaysian?” with a mix of original storytellers and some newer voices offering differing viewpoints and personal stories on this heartfelt issue.
