Emergency Shelter is Emergency Stairs’ artist training programme that aims to consolidate methodologies of training and creation.

The key elements of Emergency Shelter are:

1) Regular training 

2) Creative devisation 

3) Consolidating methods 

4) Creating ensemble works centered on pushing new artistic boundaries 

Started in 2017 with the formation of Emergency Stairs, the ensemble of actor-creators came together weekly over 40 weeks a year to train, consolidate methods of creation and create a new body of works under the Offstage series.

The programme aims to nurture a strong ensemble of actor-creators sensitive to the arts ecosystem in which they are part of, in order to create an original body of works with a focus on the creative process. 

Shelter members also participated in our annual cross-culture exchange programmes in Yokohama, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Jakarta, Bali and Yogyakarta between 2017 and 2019.

What’s Next?

The three-year Shelter programme will end in 2021 with the conclusion of OFFSTAGE 3.0, presented under the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival.

Emergency Academy, a regional artist leadership development programme will replace the Shelter programme.
