Emergency Stairs presents OFFSTAGE


OFF STAGE, an Emergency Shelter production

I am just a writer.

I am just a director.

I am just a producer.
I am just a stage crew.
I am just a light designer.
I am just a stage manager.
I am just a sound designer.
I am just a ticketing personnel.
I am just a marketing personnel.

I am just...

In life, we play many roles.

Sometimes they are liberating and enjoyable.

Sometimes, they are oppressive and testing.

How do we take on our roles?

Are we able to break boundaries?

Or do we have to perform our roles the way they should conventionally be?

Emergency Shelter - training arm of the controversial experimental theatre company Emergency Stairs - brings you its first production, OFFSTAGE in May! Members of Emergency Shelter will take on roles in theatre as both cast and crew to look at conventions in theatre-making, and examine how we can look at roles in different ways.

Shelter Members & Performers

Chanel Chan, Chong Woon Yong, Darren Guo, Zachary Ho, WahWah Hung Chit Wah, Doreen Toh, Theresa Wee-Yenko, Jasmine Xie, Lina Yu.

STAIRCASE is Emergency Stairs' new space. Situated in an industrial building, STAIRCASE is a space for creation and performance.

A staircase functions as joint between two or more floors, a passage between worlds, an architectural feature that extends space, promises more. A transitional escape, a place to pause and think, a convenient smoking point.

To be on a flight of stairs. We welcome you to our STAIRCASE.
