Over the past few months, four aspiring theatre directors have been working very hard at their craft. The young quartet – Ali Motamedi, Lim Sheng Hui, Hana Nadira and Khairi Anwar – were handpicked by Theatresauce, a local performing arts collective.
They are part of 2019’s Emerging Director’s Lab (EDL), a year-long programme to train new theatre practitioners. Between April 18 and 21, the four will be showcasing their theatre skills for the first time at Lot’ng Arts Space in Subang Jaya, Selangor. Each one is directing a play as part of the When We Were showcase, featuring four short plays. Each work explores themes of “memory".
