Here in Kakiseni we believe in the value of the performing arts industry in the nation's cultural landscape. Some examples of our initiatives:
Our main website, where we provide a free service to the public for events listings, profiles of practitioners and notices of auditions.

The BOH Cameronian Arts Awards, the prestigious and annual event that recognises outstanding achievements in Theatre, Music, Musical Theatre and Dance.

In recognition of the need for an affordable and versatile space for arts events, we founded Free Space. To date it has been used for music performances (ranging from acoustic to loud metalheads-banging noisecore gigs), theatre shows, workshops of various kinds, rehearsals, poetry readings, fashion shows, shooting locations, press conferences and much, much more.

An annual performing arts festival in Pavilion, one of our initiatives to bring arts to the general public. We figured since the people in Malaysia are known to hang out in shopping malls, we would build a black box and several performance stages and spaces for them within a shopping mall.
Kakiseni has been known for its reviews and editorials since it was founded. Never a quiet moment when a show is reviewed!
In addition, Kakiseni is also working with the DBKL and shopping malls to open up spaces for public performances, through #BuskStop.

We also curate performing arts for other major events, for example: Urbanscapes and Hari Belia in Putrajaya.
This is but a partial list, it certainly doesn't stop there! We're always up to something, always trying to increase audiences for the arts, find more spaces for performances, help practitioners with their work, gain more recognition for the industry.
Simply put, we are a small team with a huge amount of passion for what we do. Follow us on Facebook (, Twitter ( and Instagram ( for more updates!
