Acting & Performing Arts:

First started out in the “Indera Bangsawan” stageplay at Victoria Theatre (Singapore) in 1997 with Teater Kami Ltd., Hazriq has not stop acting and has been involved in other theatre productions with Theatre 2000, Teater Titisan, Teater Ekamatra, Teater Artistik and Panggung Arts.
Besides acting for stage, Hazriq has also acted in various television productions such as drama serials Dua Kali Lima Dol (Seasons 1, 2 & 3), Erlin Montel, Embun Di Tengahari, Gerimis Di Hati, Wajah: Pendatang, Geylang Si Paku Geylang, Kela Kar Sik and many more. He was also a cast member in the one of the Singaporean local films, “Kallang Roar: The Movie”.
Hazriq had undergone several theatre and drama trainings conducted by various theatre companies and practitioners. He also had the opportunity to attend improvisations (improv) workshops by improv theatre companies, Vancouver Theatresports and The Second City (Toronto), in Canada.
However, all of the above is nothing close when compared to the single production that he is most proud of – his only son, Rizzqi.
