When one door closes, another opens. It was a series of bittersweet farewells late last month as theatre collective Five Arts Centre moved out of its two-storey arts space and office in a Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) shoplot in Kuala Lumpur. The space was home to Five Arts Centre for 23 years, prompting online tributes from the local arts community. The theatre collective, known for its thought-provoking, experimental and intercultural works, will start a new chapter come next April at the GMBB mall in KL. "We're excited to be in the city!" said June Tan, a producer at Five Arts Centre. "But first, we'll need to raise money to renovate the new space. We definitely will need some help there," she added. Five Arts Centre, formed in 1984 by theatre directors Chin San Sooi and Krishen Jit, dancer-choreographer Marion D'Cruz, writer K.S. Maniam and visual artist Redza Piyadasa, moved into its TTDI arts space in 1998. Playwright/academician Leow Puay Tin's show Family was the first production that rehearsed at this venue in 1998.
