The Makhampom Theatre Group began working in 1980, applying theatre process for community cultural development. In conducting a dual program of production-oriented development work, Makhampom has developed an extensive toolkit of activities that it now applies in various contexts. Makhampom currently had four streams-performance, Community, Education and International Programs - through which the theatre praxis is applied.                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Makhampom 剧团自1980年起,积极把剧场艺术带入社区文化的建设。多年来,剧团朝制作演出和投入社会文化活动作双线发展,也因此发展出一组活动的工具箱,应用在不同的内容上面。 Makhampom剧团目前的活动以剧场为主轴,分成4个主要面向,演出、社区、教育以及国际交流。                   

This workshop will introduce several of the performance, educational and community-based approaches of Makhampom through an integrated, participatory workshop. This will include activities designed for young people in addressing localizaed themes and issues through theatre based execises, followed by series of group-based theatre-devising process. The exercises will include theatre games, social mapping, physical storytelling, and experiential body-based devising work. At the completion of the workshop the participants will also prepare a showcase of performance material deriving from the workshop.                                                                             
此工作坊将透过密集的参与性活动,向参与者介绍 Makhampom 其中一些有关演出、教育以及社区的理念。这包括为青少年依据本土性的主题和问题而设计,以戏剧为主体的活动,如剧场游戏、用身体来说故事、寻找社会议题以及感知身体等,此工作坊将以参与者从上课内容发展出来的演出作结束。                                                                   

This workshop is good for theatre workers and educators applying theatre in the dual function of product and process. The facilitator will take you through a series of workshop exercises as an experience in Makhampom's theatre approach.

A bi- annual theatre project in Malaysia, Pentas Theatre Collaboration Project is a platform of interaction within different cultures and realms and encourages diversities and possibilities in theatre arts and theatre language.

Three theatre directors are invited to participate and a common theme is decided by mutual agreement. The directors then create their individual pieces based on the discussions and the three pieces are then presented in the same evening.                                                                                  
                                                                           
The 2006 collaboration, based on the theme of Language, was between three Malaysian companies, Pentas Project Theatre Production, The Instant Cafe Theatre Company, and Alternative Stage Theatre Company. The result was a triple-bill of plays -Silence, Please (English) directed by Jo Kukathas, Repot [Mind+Mine] (Mandarin) directed by Loh Kok Man and WIP (Malay) directed by Nam Ron.
