The Kuala Lumpur Performing

Arts Centre (PentasSeni KL) is

fast becoming the hub for the

performing arts community,

fostering creative excellence

through the development and

nurturing of performing arts

A not-for-profit organisation, the

Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts

Centre is designed to meet the

needs of an ever more demanding

and diverse performing arts scene

in Malaysia. Located in the midst

of parkland and lakes in Sentul Park,

the arts centre is located only 10

minutes from a railway station and

20 minutes by car from the city


The complex comprises a 504 seat

proscenium theatre, a 200 seat

experimental black box, the IndiCine

for independent film makers; an

onsite set construction workshop,

an academy with 10 studios, and

much more.

KLPac collaborates with companies

from around the world on a regular

basis. They also work closely with

organisations such as the British

Council, The Japan Foundation

and the cultural sections of many

foreign missions to bring overseas

productions to the Malaysian stage.

The founding partners in the

complex are Yayasan Budi Penyayang

Malaysia, YTL Corporation and The

Actors Studio.

Penyayang’s role in the newly

formed KL Performing Arts Centre/

PentasSeni KL is in keeping with

their objective of assisting the

promotion of cultural heritage and

the arts. Datin Paduka Seri Endon
