About the Group:


PITAPAT  THEATRE was formed  in 2012 in Kota Kinabalu ,  Sabah.   Our  aim  is  to  undertake  relevant,  accessible  and  contemporary  theatrical projects  which  explore  the  multicultural  Malaysian  community  to increase consciousness  of  the social  issues.   Our  main objective  is  to increase the participation  of  people  from  our  multiethnic  Malaysia  in  all aspects  of  professional  theatrical  training  and  intensive  drama workshops.

Our works of theatre creations are mainly multilingual, which responds to the unique plural culture not only in Malaysia, but also the globalization of other parts of the world. Since 2013, we have been creating works adapted from classic plays such as works by Ibsen, Dario Fo, Jean Genet etc into modern context in terms to reconnect the classic and modern, the traditional and contemporary, the Western and the Eastern, and also to question what is our identity as a post- colonized state.
