Arts Exchange 2013

Kakiseni Arts Exchange KL (AEXKL) is Malaysia’s premier arts exchange programme that unites and bridges the local and international performing art communities through a transfer and exchange of knowledge.

The Abrisham Journey

The programme will see local performers handpicked by Zahmatkesh himself to adapt and localise The Mythical Month – a classical Persian myth telling the tale of Fereydūn and Zahhāk – to share with Malaysian children and communities nationwide.
