A not-to-be-missed opportunity to experience The Necessary Stage's (TNS) unique devising methodology, with main facilitation by Haresh Sharma.

Characters and relationships are key to TNS’ signature works – indigenous, intercultural, character-driven and issue-based. The facilitators will share their distinctive creative process, honed through the creation of numerous important works such as Off Centre, Fundamentally Happy and Gemuk Girls. Award-winning actors Siti Khalijah and Dwayne Lau will be making special appearances to share their experiences on devising work.

​Participants will:
- Create characters from a series of individual and group improvisational exercises
- Come up with scenarios, use tableaux and write scenes based on their improvised characters

This workshop is for:
- Participants 16 - 35 years old
- Youths interested in using the devising process to create new work
- Playwrights exploring the processes of character and scene development
