In 2017, Eng Kai Er, the infamous scientist-turn-dance artist, founded Make It Share It (MISI), a community-run performing studio for artists to gather, learn, and share. Each month, they would run an Open Stage programme, which hosted dancers, theatre practitioners, and even poets. MISI closed its doors in December 2018, two short years after its inception. Eng Kai Er then made an incredibly generous decision to donate their dance mats to Rumah P7:1SMA. The spirit of MISI then lives on at P7:1SMA; witnessing and supporting the creation process and capability development of our associate artists.


Permisi is a homage to Kai Er and the philosophy that built MISI. Permisi will renew her mission in creating an unrestrained platform for artists to perform and share their works.
