TEDxNUST - Shah Sharabeel - Change through Performing Art

About Speaker Squeeze a lifetime worth of excellence into a span of twenty years and you get what the letters in the name of the Director/ Producer Shah Sharahbeel truly represent. His production house CSP (Center Stage Productions) dawned as a legislature for both the makers and the audience of commercial theatre, the seeds of which were sown in the year 1990. His stage productions, usually the replica of epic classics depicting farce, comedy and a hybrid of drama and emotions, have hit the metropolitan hubs of Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad like a storm. Originals are what his fan following highly anticipate as his next big thing, however, for the time being they are greatly indebted to him for introducing quality to the theatrical realities of the country which goes a long way in grooming our perceptions. Born on the 16th of March, the directors' journey began in 1988 when he joined a band called 'Night Creatures'. By taking the dramatic step of moving out of the comfort zone of his family & home at the tender age of sixteen in order to stand on his own feet, he set the wheels in motion for a dramatic future ahead. Calling himself a fighter, he sees values and upbringing as real educators in life and apart from organization and commitment, highly regards 'burning desires' as a propeller for success in life. Following graduation from Cathedral College in Lahore, his first stage production was 'Oh dad, poor dad', an instant triumph making way for more successful ventures like "Phantom of the Opera", "Moulin Rouge", "Bombay Dreams", "Home is where your clothes are", "Tom, Dick & Harry", and "You only marry twice", to name a few. He went on to become a Chief men's wear designer in a chain of leading clothes brand and in 2000, he opened the Al-Falah mini golf course & amusement park. Currently employed by LUMS and LGS Defence Campus in Lahore, a promising self-employed entrepreneur as he is, he is a living proof of the fact that challenging times or no challenging times, there's simply no excuse for bringing innovation to a standstill.
