Theatresauce was founded in 2016 and has since produced a series of published plays by international playwrights. A realization eventually surfaced, that these works – despite being beautifully written and thematically universal – were textually and contextually limiting. A lack of risk and urgency on our part also became apparent.
Theatresauce today reimagines and challenges the way urban Malaysian audiences experience contemporary theatre, through the creation of new and bold works. Our theatremakers thirst for interrogation and deconstruction – in both content and form – and are driven by the spirit of generosity and play. Theatresauce invites audiences to eventually participate a similar way in the theatre. We trust a culture as such goes a long way in reflecting the state of a nation we truly want to live in.
Theatresauce continues to regard directors as the seed to the theatremaking process. Each season, the company nurtures a few emerging leaders – each with unique viewpoints and styles – through a dynamic and rigorous year-long program.
Theatresauce also operates The School, providing the public with learning opportunities on theatre-making tools, techniques and processes. Our space in USJ 21 is also now open for theatremakers to rent at highly-affordable rates.
