I'm a Singaporean acting teacher and theatre director currently pursuing a PhD in Actor Training & VR at DeMontfort University (UK) on a full scholarship. Experienced in various elements within theatremaking, I have directed and taught across Singapore, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
I graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama (2018; London) with an MA in Actor Training & Coaching and am a former Resident Assistant Director at Singapore Repertory Theatre (2016-2017; Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress, Romeo & Juliet at Fort Canning, Hand to God, Constellations, Disgraced and many more).
My most recent directing works were Water Child (2020, Zoom) Lady Death (2019, Hong Kong) and Discord of Discourse (2019, Hong Kong & London). I am Artistic Director and Principal facilitator of PlayCraft Studios, an actor training company https://www.khairulkamsani.com/playcraftstudios and am a member of the research group Architects of Realities funded by the National Arts Council Singapore, investigating inter-medial performativity and rehearsal processes between theatre and virtual realities.
