My name is Nur Khairiyah Binte Ramli aka Khai.

I'm a Singaporean Muslim-Malay Creative Producer based in London. I am passionate about championing stories from the underrepresented voices in the industry. 

My journey started in 2010 with The Necessary Stage.

I had the privileged to work for the theatre company as an Assistant Production Coordinator on their award-winning productions like Gemuk Girls (Fat Girls), Model Citizens, and supported their annual M1 Singapore Fringe Festival.


In 2012, I was appointed Programmes Manager at The Substation, and programmed their annual Night Festival, SeptFest, and their Performing Arts season from 2012-2015. My role at The Substation has allowed me to commission, lead incubation programmes and provide a platform for emerging artists to experiment and take risks.

In 2016, I left my full-time job to be an independent producer. I general manage a local theatre collective called HATCH & produced 4 of their original works  (Hawa, Super Happy Land, Cari Makan and Lanang). I've toured Super Happy Land to Osaka, Japan and HAWA to Brisbane Fest, Australia.


In 2018, I moved to London to further my studies and graduated with MA (Distinction) in Creative Producing at Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. I was awarded the Start Up VISA after proposing a business plan for RUMAH. During the pandemic,
I re-imagined the space virtually, to hold Asian diaspora communities & creatives. I hosted online 'Scratch Nights' called Main-Main, which means to 'Play',
supported by Omnibus Theatre, and 'Crying Parties' on zoom where we check in, learn a new skill, meet other like minded individuals in a brave space & stay connected. I was awarded grants from ACE Project Grant and Paul Hamlyn Foundation for all of RUMAH's programmes that year.

In May 2021, I joined 'In Good Company', the flagship development programme for creatives in the Midlands, as their Interim Creative Producer. While in the Midlands, I met Sarah Brigham and Ivan Stott, who then made me their freelance producer for Hiccup Theatre - A theatre company making work for children, young people and their families, based in the Midlands. 

In June 2021 I started working with Complicité  An international touring theatre company, based in London, founded by Simon McBurney, Annabel Arden & the late Marcello Magni, as their Projects Coordinator. In 2022 I became their full-time Assistant Producer & supported different productions like The Dark Is Rising, Lead the community screening of Can I Live? by Fehinti Balogun and the preview of Drive Your Plow Over The Bones Of The Dead at Theatre Royal Plymouth

In 2023 I've decided to jump back to freelancing-full-time.
