To celebrate the second season of The Witcher, the iconic Green Vase Fountain at the Ground Floor of Sunway Pyramid has been transformed into the dark, ominous forest of The Continent. Those who dare enter will find the life-sized Myriapod in all its horrifying glory within. While you’re there, look out for Kaer Morhen’s Medallion Tree, from which its branches hang a variety of Witcher medallions, honouring Wolf School Witchers that have fallen over the years. Prospective Witchers can complete the immersive journey by collecting all five designs of the medallion (Geralt, Lambert, Eskel, Cohen, and Vesemir) and unlock exclusive deals around the mall. Alternatively, if you’re staying home this weekend, you can catch The Witcher Season 2 on Netflix.

When: 18 to 31 December 2021

Where: 18 December – Black Box, Publika | 19 to 31 December – G3, West Entrance, Black Bridge

Armed with the aim to reignite the creative economy, Senilab and 33.3™, in collaboration with Pusaka and Kumpulan Kuda Kepang Parit Raja, have conceptualised a physical showcase titled ‘Cahaya 004 – Kitab Basah’. Literally translated from Malay to mean ‘light’, the goal of the Cahaya showcase is to reimagine the concept of light by applying it as a tool to reshape, redefine, and represent a space.

To kick off the showcase, there will be a performance by a Kuda Kepang dance troop from Parit Raja, Batu Pahat for one day only on 18 December—setting the stage to explore intersections where modern and traditional artistry can exist in parallel. The light and art installation showcase will follow the next day, with admissions open to all those who are fully vaccinated, in compliance with strict SOPs and regulations.
