Underclass 《贱民》
Synopsis

Drama Box and The Necessary Stage
present
Underclass


In 2016, Drama Box and The Necessary Stage presented the groundbreaking sold-out production Manifesto, that delved into the relationship between art and politics.

This year, the two companies collaborate once again on a brand new work that explores poverty, inequality and human dignity in Singapore.

Underclass tells the story of Xinyi, who finds herself in a downward spiral after losing her job and her flat. When she moves into a rental unit, she meets Johari, and they strike up an unlikely friendship. Will they be able to get out of their disadvantaged status with the help of well-meaning friends, entrepreneurs, civil servants and politicians?

Whose responsibility is it provide assistance for those who fall through the cracks? Can we make a difference and address imbalance in our society? Why should we?

Underclass asks urgent questions about the widening class divide in Singapore today. Who speaks up for the marginalised in society? Or will they be airbrushed out of our national narrative of prosperity and progress?

戏剧盒与必要剧场
合呈献


2016年,戏剧盒与必要剧场联合呈现座无虚席的创新剧场体验《宣言》,探讨艺术与政治之间的关系。

今年,两个剧团再次合作,呈现崭新原创剧,探讨新加坡的贫困、不平等议题,以及人性尊严。

《贱民》讲述欣怡的故事。失去了工作和房子,欣怡的人生急转直下。当她搬进租屋单位,她遇见了Johari,两人发展出一段“不太可能”的友谊。他们能否在朋友、企业家、公务员、政客的帮助下,脱离困境?

谁有责任为弱势群体提供帮助?我们能否做些什么,为社会的不平等声援?我们有必要那么做吗?

《贱民》针对新加坡日益扩大的阶级鸿沟提出重要的问题。谁会帮弱势群体发声?他们是否会在宏大的国家论述下被消声?
