Theatrethreesixty at Tommy Le Baker

Just over two years old, theatrethreesixty is a Malaysian theatre company that was founded to develop work pertinent to the contemporary Malaysian audience. They have recently moved to their new home on Jalan Ipoh, a space that comes complete with a black box theatre.

Located next to Tommy Le Baker, theatrethreesixty at Tommy Le Baker is essentially a place for actors to rehearse and perform. It’s a humble space; a small waiting area located at the front of house lets guests congregate before a performance begins. Here you’ll also find a library of scripts, mostly from Western writers but there are gems from recognised Asian writers like Alfian Sa’at. Artist Nicholas Choong has left his mark by painting the company’s logo on its main doors.

This black box theatre is a cosy space that sits 50 people comfortably. The audience is seated around the performing area, creating a more intimate experience that encourages participation and interaction between audience and performer.

Due to the flexibility of the space, it can be used to host different events such as workshops and music gigs. It can also double-up as a rehearsal space. The theatre has a simple lighting rig consisting of theatrical and LED lights, a four-speaker sound system, and a curtain rig that goes all the way around the black box.
