M1 Patch! A Theatre Festival of Art...
Play against expectations with this darkly subversive take on a traditional family drama.A dog-like human. A human-like dog.At our bleakest and most desperate, are we human or beast?Everyday, a pair of dog siblings wait to have afternoon tea with their mother. One day, a new family member appears – their supposedly long-lost eldest brother. But no one seems to remember him. Is he simply a lost mongrel, or actually a wild beast in disguise? As the family accepts the stray into their lives, the very foundations of their home begins to crumble. Violence and lust begin to stir in the narrow old apartment…The first prize winner of the 15th Taipei Literature Awards (Play Script category), A Dog’s House is playwright Lin Meng-Huan’s radical take on conventional family plays. Using the metaphor of pets and owners, the play explores intergenerational differences and identities within families, and the ensuing questions on modern society. Through animalized viewpoints, the playwright explores how the self-contradiction and conflicts between family and individual values can lead to devastation, and how we might rebuild from there.Digging deep into the humanity coded within the text, Director Fu Hong-Zheng forges the disintegrating psychological states of each character by shaping the neurotic yet detailed interpretations in the actors’ movement and voice. Derelict and dark on the surface, rich and brutal within, the eccentric, animalistic style serves to realise the deep violence buried within.

A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.

Shakespeare's Globe 2019
Shakespeare’s Globe presents a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement, The Comedy of Errors, Pericles and Twelfth Night. Taking on multiple roles across all three plays, the company will unravel these timeless tales of those who have crossed seas, lost their families, and are finding out what belonging truly means to them.PERICLES - The spirit of fairy tale is never far from the surface of Pericles, the first of Shakespeare’s late romances. Imbued with music, miracles, and the constant presence of the sea, this little-seen work sees Pericles, Prince of Tyre, forced to flee his own kingdom and wander the world.THE COMEDY OF ERRORS - Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both named Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both named Dromio) – both pairs separated at sea. Add a dash of mistaken identity and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos…TWELFTH NIGHT - When a shipwreck tears a family apart, twins Sebastian and Viola seek refuge in a new land. Filled with unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with subtle poetry, expressed through some of Shakespeare’s most exquisite songs.AUDIENCE CHOICEWhat’s it like to go to the theatre and not know what you’re going to see? Take part in our democratic theatrical experiment to find out. For one performance only, it will be up to you to vote for which of these three plays you want to see: Pericles, Twelfth Night or The Comedy of Errors.The rules are simple: the loudest cheer wins. Actors call it ‘terrifying’, audiences say it’s exhilarating. So scream and shout as loud as you can for the play you want to see, and blow the (figurative) roof off the theatre.

Now you can hear Chinese dissident artist Lin Bo speak … about the work that got him jailed back home.” (Los Angeles Times Critics’ Pick)Within a regime that smothers free speech and gives breath to fake news, one voice dared to speak the truth.

Urinetown: The Musical
In a fictional “most expensive city in the world”, a “cross-border water crisis” has led to a government ban on private lavatories. The woeful water shortage sees the erection of pay-to-pee public toilets operated by an all-powerful corporation, Urine Good Company, owned by the megalomaniac Caldwell B. Cladwell. Breaking the laws against gratuitous public peeing means urination ruination, with offenders being exiled in the dreaded and mysterious “Urinetown”, never to be seen again.When threatened with yet another pee-fee hike, the poor citizens, having endured overwhelming oppression and bursting bladders, can no longer hold it in, and stage a revolution, led by a handsome hero with the heroically handsome name of Bobby Strong. And, in true musical theatre style, he still finds the time and energy to fall hopelessly in love with the honeylicious Hope Cladwell, who (shock! horror! spoiler!) turns out to be the daughter of the dastardly Caldwell B. Cladwell!Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, URINETOWN is the hilarious musical satire that gleefully takes the piss out of politicians, populism, “people power”, capitalism, corporate corruption, and musicals themselves!
WILD RICE @ FUNAN GRAND OPENING SEA...
MerdekaAs the Singapore Bicentennial is celebrated, six young people form a group called Raffles Must Fall to examine our country's colonial legacy. During their gatherings, they pore over forgotten texts and artefacts, re-enacting scenes from the past to better understand the nightmare of subjugation... and the dream of self-determination.Drawing upon a wealth of historical documentation, including speeches, newspaper articles, petitions and songs, "Merdeka / 獨立 /சுதந்திரம்" confronts us with questions about our colonial past and how it still echoes through our present and into our future.Why celebrate the beginning of colonialism rather than its end? Has Singapore gained independence without truly undergoing a process of decolonisation? And if Raffles must fall, what will he take down with him?Written by the award-winning Alfian Sa'at in collaboration with up-and-coming playwright Neo Hai Bin, this provocative and moving new play examines how our history and humanity have been shaped – and shattered – by the forces of colonialism.
