Let us take you on a private tour of Malaysia’s only fully-integrated arts centre. Discover its fascinating 119-year-old heritage and marvel at its award-winning design. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the theatre from the catwalk where the technical team creates magic and step on the very stage used by world class performers.

You’ll get to meet the lovely klpac team as well as feast on a sumptuous Malaysian brunch on the Artistic Director’s private balcony overlooking 35 acres of lush greenery.

To complete the experience, Backstage Bites will offer a choice of two taster workshops – Balinese Dance Introductory Workshop or Drum Circle Workshop.

Places limited to 20 pax only.

Backstage Bites (formerly Brunch on the Balcony) offers the public a rare sneak peek of how an arts centre works and access to areas usually off-limits to the public.
