Duration: 90 mins

Life Sdn Bhd has touched many of us in many ways, since the beginning of the series in 2004. We began with What It Means to be Malaysian, for 3 years, performed by actors and non-actors. Patrick Teoh then quipped…Aiya Faridah, after 3 years cukuplah, what else is there to say…

So, so wrong Patrick. There was so much more to say then and even more now. Life then moved on to personal issues that confronted us such as breast cancer, abuse, refugees, human trafficking, people living with HIV and AIDS ending last year with Voices of the Young. Differences however touched the nerves in a way we never expected. Differences, which was staged in 2021, brought out the real stories from real people that we thought would touch your raw nerve but yet smile, chuckle or hide that pain behind a laugh. Whatever.

Life Sdn Bhd was created in the aftermath of the devastating 2003 floods that destroyed The Actors Studio’s iconic space at Plaza Putra underneath Dataran Merdeka. It was the very production that reopened klpac after its third lockdown and an equally devastating year due to the pandemic.

Directed by Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican, come listen to real stories by real people as told by Adry Bashir, Amina, Ayushna, Cherry Coco, Cordelia Lee, Hannah Ling, Joanna Noelle and Seri.

Presenter Bio:

The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat

Since its inception in 1989, The Actors Studio has been presenting groundbreaking theatre in Malaysia. In 2006, it created The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat arm to bridge the gap between the arts and the people in line with the National Arts and Culture Department’s efforts to ‘merakyatkan seni’. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat’s inaugural project was Alfian Sa’at’s “Anak Bulan di Kampong Wa’ Hassan” which toured to five villages in Peninsular Malaysia. Since then, it has re-staged many classics such as “Philadelphia, Here I Come!”, “Uda dan Dara” and “Rashomon”. It has also revived interest in traditional art forms through productions like “A Night of Cantonese Opera” and “Mak Yong Titis Sakti”. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat has also been a key driver behind the development of new content. It has premiered works such as “The Taste of Water”, “Kandang” (based on George Orwell’s Animal Farm), a BM version of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” and “Dato’ Seri” (based on Macbeth). In addition to on-going series like “Don’t Let…” and “Dancebox” to promote new content, it also initiated The New Play Project for emerging playwrights. In 2016, it mounted a year-long Shakespeare 400 season. Two productions “Shakespeare Goes Bollywood” and “Richard III” was named the “Best of 2016” by the BOH Cameronian Arts Awards. Richard III won 6 other awards. The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat continues to bring quality and accessible theatre with a strongly Malaysian voice. The Actors Studio just celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019.
