Baling is a documentary-theater performance that reconstructs the events surrounding the birth of Malaysia. It puts the spotlight on Malaysia's founding fathers: Tengku Abdul Rahman (later elected Prime Minister), David Marshall (Representative of the UK), and Chin Peng (representing Left voices). They read archival letters, or correspondences, related to the peace reconciliation efforts in Malaysia.

Mark Teh works as performance maker and researcher. His works revolve around historical events/issues and urban society. He lectures at the Department of Performance & Media, Sunway University, and is actively involved with Five Arts Centre, a collective space for artists, activists, and directors in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
