From 12 September, Kakiseni International Arts Festival promises us a five day arts extravaganza at Pavilion, culminating on Malaysia Day. For the third year running, we can look forward to dance, theatre, music and workshops.

Get ready to dust off your dancing shoes and come join Koutei Sennin and his Japanese dance team, Time Machine, in their search for a “popping” dance apprentice! Time Machine will also be holding daily performances of their robot style dance during the festival.

If you’re more into feeling rhythm and beats, Hand Percussion will be here to introduce to us new dimensions to theatrical drumming by fusing together the different cultures across the globe into contemporary performances.

Theatre fans can also look forward to a staging of “Mat Derih Kola Perlih” by Nam Ron. Meanwhile, British parkour-style dance group the Urban Playground is set to thrill with their reinterpretation of urban dance.

Don’t forget to look out for the #seedingMYhope capsule, which will be revealed on 15 September at Pavilion KL. As part of a 17-day campaign in conjunction with MyTeksi, #seedingMYhope will have traveled across 13 states to collect soil from each state. You can keep up with the capsule’s journey to bring Malaysians closer together.

Admission is free for all and shows are 30 minutes long. 

Kakiseni International Arts Festival 2015 will be held in Pavilion KL, from 12 September – 16 September. For updates on performances and showtimes, check out their events page here.
