About the Event

The three female characters in The Studios 2022: Berak express their individual forms of grief in immensely different yet familiar ways. Moderated by playwright and arts activist, Nabilah Said, this panel discussion probes at the topic of grief with the artists of Berak and Poop!, Mohd Fared Jainal and Chong Tze Chien, alongside art psychotherapist, Jolene Chiang. The discussion dives into how the expressions of grief are performed and represented on stage, and the considerations necessary in its artistic treatment to reveal parallels, similarities and divergences in fiction and reality.
