How I Learned To Accept Reality By Sleeping Through It - HILTARBSTI

At once dark yet whimsical, HOW I LEARNT TO ACCEPT REALITY BY SLEEPING THROUGH IT (ANAK/BENIH) is an exploration of two sides of the same coin firmly anchored in the Malaysian experience. Sabahan playwright Ariff Kamil's debut bi-lingual work is directed by theatrethreesixty's artistic director Christopher Ling.

Playwright Ariff Kamil makes his bi-lingual debut with HILTARBSTI under the tutelage of his mentor, co-founder of theatrethreesixty, Alex Chua.

This production is made possible through the Development Grant for the Performing Arts: New Malaysian Works initiated by the National Department for Culture & Arts and Kakiseni.
