Short Description
The Open Text
Alvin Tan

Picking a play from Shorts 2, a director is invited to be a co-creator with Sharma, even if s/he wishes to contest the basic premise of the primary text. Most texts in Shorts 2 are indeterminate, open, deliberately incomplete if one wants them to be, provisional and therefore transformable. This obviously is not conventional mainstream playwriting, so much so that Sharma stands out as a versatile and open theatre collaborator, capable of innovating text for a range of theatrical forms.
