SYNOPSIS

Description

Here's your chance to get a first-hand experience of the unique devising methodology developed by The Necessary Stage’s Alvin Tan and Haresh Sharma!

Characters and relationships are key to The Necessary Stage’s signature works – indigenous, intercultural, character-driven and issue-based. The company’s founder and Artistic Director Alvin Tan and Resident Playwright Haresh Sharma will conduct this two-day Devising Masterclass, where they will share their distinctive creative process, honed through the creation of numerous important works such as Off Centre, Fundamentally Happy and Gemuk Girls.

Focusing on the Festival’s theme of Art & Loss, participants will create characters from a series of individual and group improvisational exercises. They will also come up with scenarios, use tableaux and write scenes based on their improvised characters.
