Sandiwara 2018 Vol. 2: Where Do We Go From Here?
We thought we'd schedule the next #SandiwaraMaTA to also celebrate Malaysia Day (or post Malaysia Day)!
It'll also be a Monday, public holiday.
17 September 2018 @ 7:30pm
32-2, Jalan USJ 10/1E,
Subang Jaya (USJ Taipan area)
"Where Do We Go From Here?"
[You can view the theme as a focal subject, or a launchpad, to propose any topics, projects, questions, issues, etc. that you want to discuss, get feedback on, or work on.
Or go completely off tangent. Whatever you're compelled to discuss/work on. It could be funding for theatre, why we do what we do, how to stay fit for theatre, running a theatre space, pursuing tax exemption policies, a monologue about nasi lemak, best place for breakfast before bump-in, etc.
You can also see reports from the last Sandiwara(s) to see what people talked about then, who attended, and the themes: https://sandiwara.mata-theatre.com
You can still repeat topics/sessions from previous Mahjong Paper Discussions/Sandiwara-s. Each MPD is considered a fresh, new space and time.]
LANGUAGE is generally in English, but you are welcome to share/speak/work in any language you more comfortable with. And together, we will find a way to translate across languages, as we usually do in multilingual settings across Malaysia.
This event is open to Malaysian Theatre practitioners, theatre-practitioners in Malaysia, and anyone interested in Malaysian Theatre.
WHAT IS SANDIWARA?
Sandiwara is a place to TALK, DISCUSS & EAT IN THE NAME OF THEATRE! It is a community event organized by the Malaysian Theatre Association (MaTA) for people to come together, and discuss anything and everything about the local scene.

The evening's highlight, the MAHJONG PAPER DISCUSSION (MPD) is inspired by a theatre initiative called Devoted & Disgruntled UK (D&D). People have formed whole theatre companies and created projects out of D&Ds.
It uses a popular simple and free-flowing discussion format called Open Space, which works on the "Law of Two Feet":
"You take responsibility for what you care about — standing up for that and using your own two feet to move to whatever place you can best contribute and/or learn"
From 17th September 2018 to 17th September 2018
