22 – 26 February Life Sdn. Bhd. 6: Abuse

Every day we read or hear about sad, gory, despicable stories of abuse relating not only to humans but also to animals. It’s time to share some of these stories – all true – voiced by those who know best because they are closest to it. The 2011 installment of Life Sdn. Bhd. will be looking at abuse and the plight of the abused.

In a report by Women’s Aid Organisation, a shocking 39% of Malaysian women have been abused by their partners. In another report by UNICEF Malaysia, it states that an average of seven children in Malaysia were reported to be victims of abuse each day.

Of course, abuse on maids and migrant workers is also rampant. And let’s not forget abuse is not only confined to physical abuse but also mental and emotional abuse which can be equally harming. PAWS Project 575 highlights the fact that 575 animals are put down daily because they have nowhere to go.

The very first Life Sdn. Bhd. was started back in 2004 by Dato’ Faridah Merican. The beauty of it lies in its stripped down format where actors as well as non-actors share true stories, on stage, on issues that affect us living in Malaysia. We’ve done breast cancer in 2007. Tackled the HIV / AIDS epidemic in 2010. It was groundbreaking to say the least – nine individuals stepping on stage for the very first time to share their stories on HIV / AIDS.

Life Sdn Bhd 6: Abuse will be an equally thought-provoking and moving installment brought to you by Faridah. It will feature a specially-commissioned song by singer-songwriter Ian Chow entitled Lullaby.
