Hello One and all,
Hope you'll have been doing great! I have been busy with the rehearsals of a play - yes yes, i am acting.
For those who don't know, i have 3 years of formal training in acting for theatre,film and television from Lasalle-SIA, College of the Arts. The play is called " We are like this only" - forum theatre style.
This play shines a light on the problems new indians and local singaporean indians are facing in terms of integrating with each other. It's a hot hot issue dealt with sensitivity for sure. So come on down! You can purchase tickets from www.humtheatre.com . The show is on - 26thFeb2013 to 3rd March 2013 at the Goodman Arts Centre, Blackbox .
It's been so nostalgic cos the rehearsals and the play are held at the old Lasalle-sia, college of the arts at Goodman Road. Life comes around full circle in many ways.
In terms of Stand-up comedy - I have been performing with Singapore's most famous and entertaining stand-up comedian - KUMAR. That's right. She gives me 10 mins of stage time during 2 of her shows. Isn't that fantastic?! I mean i remember watching this genius perform at Hard Rock Cafe as a teenager and thought to myself.. Whoa. How liberating and hilariously funny. I never thought i would get to share the stage with this legend. Here is a picture i recently took with her :
Sharul Channa and Kumar
When people find out I perform with Kumar - they ask me weird questions but they are completely justified i guess cos people think an artist's stage persona is how they are like in personal life. " Isn't it scary to talk to Kumar? Don't you feel scared? " - WHAT? Once and for all let me answer this question. Kumar is one of the nicest human beings i have met. If she seems dismissive - it's just an artist's personal space and she is a very shy person. But she is amazing. She has her one man show coming up for this year at the Esplande which is called : What makes a man man. Can't wait to watch it!
