Far beyond a mere event, it was an artistic venture aimed at delving into the historical, economic, social, and environmental dimensions of KTM through the unique lens of a site-specific performance. Collaborating with KTM and esteemed partner universities, the students took on the role of architects, ensuring an intimate connection with the historical richness of KTM.

The performances transcended boundaries through collaborative artistry. UOW Malaysia presented "Hello and Goodbye,” featuring synergy of five dancers and four vocalists. Meanwhile, UM mesmerized spectators with "The Same Time at 17:19," an exhilarating piece executed by four talented students.
