Singapore HS festival

Wait List




Starting Point

At this festival we will explore gender – the performance and expression of gender and the role gender plays in shaping our identity and the way others perceive us. We will do this by drawing on authentic testimony and real life stories.


Out & About

Testimony from and interviews with members of the Singapore community. Their lived experiences will provide starting points from which to explore the possibilities offered by combining verbatim with a range of different theatrical styles and forms.
