Anticipating The Year of No Return: An Insight into the Creative Process

The Necessary Stage (Singapore)

Get a glimpse into the creative process and research behind The Necessary Stage’s The Year of No Return, a Festival Commission for SIFA 2020. Co-written by Haresh Sharma and Rody Vera, and directed by Alvin Tan, the interdisciplinary production is an Asian collaboration featuring artists from Singapore, Malaysia, Japan and The Philippines.

Failure to curb carbon emissions by 2020 will mean we cannot keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius—the threshold that represents the point of no return.

In this presentation, Alvin Tan and Haresh Sharma of The Necessary Stage, along with actor Siti Khalijah Zainal will share their creative processes for The Year of No Return, as well as provide a peek into the narratives beyond the science of climate change that may be explored in the work.
