About the Show
pause // play is a collaborative art project by a group of creatives from various disciplines. Coming together as Unit B under Seni Tiga Lab, they have never met each other physically since the beginning of the project in June, when Malaysia was still under the Movement Control Order 3.0, which became a rare opportunity for them to react to a local and global situation, by adapting to new ways of create, collaborate and express through weekly discussions and activities.

SENI TIGA LAB: UNIT B
Gathered by the interest of defining space, a multidisciplinary group was formed in response to an open call in April 2021. Upon commencement on 6 June 2021, the group had weekly meetings to express in their own ways while exploring sounds, movements and images together along the way.

Seni Tiga (three arts in Bahasa Malaysia) is an on-going project created in 2019 as a platform for multidisciplinary collaborative performance. The three art forms are movement, visual and sound.
In 2021, instead of developing live performances, the platform will continue in the form of a laboratory - a collaboration that is more process-driven than product-oriented - to stimulate, nourish and elevate creative practice of participants through mutual artistic exchange with a mentor. We are curious about what is in the mind of artists at this time and hope to participate in the search for new ways to create, present and consume arts.

ABOUT KONGSI PETAK
An entity from the KongsiKL community that strives to promote multidisciplinary performances and expressions, to break boundaries between art disciplines and to make art accessible to all.
KongsiKL is a 10,000 sqft warehouse located at Old Klang Road, the first major road in Kuala Lumpur. It is entrusted by EXSIM Group to KakiKongsi to cultivate creative and cultural vitality. The warehouse that used to be a VOLVO service centre and stainless steel factory still retains its original structure and old statements on the textured wall.
While developing social and artistic experimentations, we embrace the spirit of ‘kongsi’ - sharing in Bahasa Malaysia and assembly or collaboration in Hokkien - and we believe in the ripple effects of sharing time, talent, space and resources.
