The one thing theatre director and playwright Fasyali Fadzly has picked up being in the local theatre scene for more than a decade is, undoubtedly, the importance of documenting your own work.

“I’m not good at documentation. I don’t have any recorded videos of my plays, ” says Fasyali, a theatre studies lecturer at KL’s Akademi Seni Budaya Dan Warisan Kebangsaan (Aswara) in a recent interview.
