With Covid and Theatres being shut, RUMAH is exploring a new space online.
VOULEZ VOUZ (DO YOU WANT TO) BE A PRODUCER is a 4 Part Producing Workshop (Workshop is conducted in ZOOM)
Khai, the founder of RUMAH, will be conducting this 4 part producing workshop-
Using references from ABBA Songs (Khai’s favorite All-time Pop Group). You have been warned!
This producing workshop is an offer for anyone looking to have a greater awareness and understanding of what Producers really do, beyond administration. At the end of it all, you’ll know why Producers are worth it! If you’re a producer and keen to be part of this workshop - Know that this workshop is DEDICATED TO YOU.
A perk me up workshop for producers to reflect on our practice and to remember why we do what we do.
Let’s unpack the term Producer together, coz I think it’s time they know what we really do.
Khai is a creative producer from Singapore who is currently based in London. A recent graduate of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with an MA in Creative Producing, she is also a recipient of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Emerging Producers Bursary.
Khai founded RUMAH, an initiative to open up spaces for integration amongst artists from the various Asian diasporas. RUMAH’s flagship programme, Rumah Fest, was awarded the Ignite Fund and is also supported by the Metroland Cultures Fund.
Since the pandemic, Khai have initiated and produced digital performances such as Monologues From My Bedroom & Rumah’s Solidarity Project.
She was also the Associate Producer for Moongate Productions’ #WeRNotVirus.

Lay All Your Love On Me (£5)

Producing can be a very lonely world. So I mostly take solace from my production team. We are BFFs, and I’ll tell you why.

Money, Money, Money (£5)
WED 22ND JULY, 6PM
It must be funny in a Rich Man’s world.
DISCLAIMER: This is not the kind of workshop that will teach you how to create budgets or raise money, but instead it will be a guide to think about money - objectively, practically, ethically and fairly. We will get through this together by attempting to solve real-life producing problems.
Be a Super Trouper (£5)
WED 29TH JULY, 6PM
Something that we neglect or don't talk about often is taking care of our mental and well being as part of our practice. These conversations are necessary. So here’s to GROWTH! We’re going to Listen, Reflect, and Evaluate.
This workshop is divided into 4 parts to prevent 'zoom-fatigue'.
Each workshop is about 40 minutes and I'll highly recommend attending all 4 of the workshops.
No worries if you're unable to, this bite-size but 'meaty' content, could still be easily followed if you can only attend 1 session.
