Phala O. Phala is the current co-animateur for The Centre for the Less Good Idea
Phala is a multi-award-winning theatre-maker and director and is the co-curator for Season 5 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea. Phala champions storytelling in this Season’s body of work, and employs a keen eye for interrogation into the many narratives that have taken shape over the making of Season 5’s works.
For Phala, who prizes emotional and psychologically-stimulating storytelling in his work, process is the guiding factor in his role as co-curator, starting with the generation of a multitude of materials from various angles, and allowing form and structure to follow. As such, many of the final works in Season 5 have taken their lead from an intensive free-writing exercise led by Phala during the workshopping sessions.
