Danial Matin (he/him) has written plays about family, identity, love, grief, and suicidality and occasionally dabbles in poetry and short prose. He is particularly interested in unearthing the instability of the interstitial, especially in relation to the personal, the historical, and the structural in/of Singapore. His recent accolades include i can’t, stop for Bored Whale Theatre’s fourplay (2022), radio play Rolling with the Times for The Second Breakfast Company’s Geylang Serai Trails (2021), Before You Go (dir. Chong Gua Khee) as part of Playwrights Commune’s Open Studio (2021), and an adaptation of selected short stories from Alfian Sa’at’s Corridor for re:VERSE 4.0 as part of #BuySingLit 2020 presented by Matter.Less. He is grateful to have been under the tutelage of Lucas Ho (Singapore), Tony Perez (Philippines), Howard Craft (USA), and Gabrielle Calvocoressi (USA) and has attended workshops with established playwrights such as Haresh Sharma (Singapore), Joel Tan (Singapore/ UK) and Paula Vogel (USA), amongst others. Imaginative narratives about intimacy and the interpersonal are close to his heart, right next to bubble tea.
