“I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage. A man walks across this empty space whilst someone else is watching him, and this is all that is needed for an act of theatre to be engaged.”
- The Empty Space, Peter Brook

An empty space. 19 actors. An audience.

Is that all it takes for a theatrical event to happen? What is theatre? And can it exist without an audience?

In the brand-new Studio @ W!LD RICE, a hitherto empty space, Young & W!LD invites you to enter a world of theatrical ideas and possibilities. Through a constellation of words and images, the company unpacks how theatre is made and how it helps us make sense of the world in we live.

Written by acclaimed theatre-maker Edith Podesta in collaboration with Young & W!LD, Anything Can Happen/Something Must Happen is playful, inventive and experimental – a thrilling experience that asks you to suspend your disbelief as you help us transform an empty space into a theatre.

Come and be a part of the drama!

Siti Khalijah Zainal is a familiar face on the Singapore stage. She’s played a diverse range of roles, including a schizophrenic young woman, an Indonesian domestic worker and Singapore’s first female Malay Prime Minister (not President!). But what challenges has she faced in her career?Inspired by Konstantin Stanislavski’s first handbook on acting, An Actress Prepares follows Siti on a journey through her life in theatre. She candidly shares various affecting and hilarious episodes: learning Chinese dance in primary school, falling in with the cool girls at the Bedok Institute of Technical Education, and being told that she might be ‘too big’ or ‘too Malay’ to get roles.This is Siti as you’ve never seen her before – raw, vulnerable and achingly honest. In An Actress Prepares, Siti tackles her greatest acting challenge yet: playing herself on stage.An Actress Prepares was commissioned by the Singapore Writers Festival for a one-day performance in 2016.IMDA Rating: Advisory (Some Mature Content)

71-year-old Teck, a grumpy retiree, has just suffered a stroke that leaves him wheelchair-bound. When he insists on moving back home, Jenny, his no-nonsense daughter, hires a young Indonesian domestic worker, Yanti, to look after him.At first, Yanti dutifully follows the strict caregiving regime drawn up by Jenny. But Teck refuses to give up a few of his favourite vices. When Jenny is not around, Yanti gives in to Teck’s demands for fatty, braised pork belly and the occasional cigarette. And yet, somehow, Jenny always knows exactly what is going on...Thrilling, darkly funny and profoundly moving, Thomas Lim’s Supervision holds up a mirror to our modern world with a rapidly ageing population. Would you give up the things you enjoy in exchange for a few more years? Does working in someone else’s home mean giving up your right to privacy? And to what lengths would you go in order to watch over someone you love?IMDA Rating: Advisory (some mature content)

Pam Oei likes gay boys. Gay boys like her too. She has always felt irresistibly drawn to them – even as a teenager, before she knew what the term ‘gay’ meant.Over the years, Pam’s adventures have included: coaxing gay boyfriends out of the closet, attending her first gay wedding in 2001, fighting to repeal Section 377A of the Penal Code in 2007, and being the Countdown Queen at Pink Dot every year (though the job is less ‘queen’ and more ‘drill sergeant’!). This makes her a gold-star straight ally and a bona fide faghag.Join Pam and the multiple characters she plays in this rainbow-coloured cabaret. Accompanied by maestro Julian Wong on the piano, Pam will tell jokes, share heart-warming tales and throw in a few torch songs for good measure. Along the way, she’ll demonstrate why she deserves the title of Singapore’s Number One Faghag!IMDA Rating: Restricted 18 (Homosexual Theme)
