Demystifying Technology - A Laboratory Project

We would like to invite all artists and technologists to our newest programme in March 2021 - "Demystifying Tech" - another international collaboration between us, Singapore Repertory Theatre, Republic Polytechnic, and Nathan Geering at Rationale Arts (UK).

This is an exciting event which looks at how cutting edge technologies can be used to enhance accessibility within theatre. It is a space for you to learn about a variety of technologies and how they can be used within a theatrical context to not only enhance accessibility, but to enrich theatrical experience. During the event you will be able to pose questions to Nathan and the experts at RP about working with technology to create productions that maximise storytelling capabilities – without compromising on artistic integrity.

In the interest of ensuring an inclusive and dynamic environment for collaboration, both disabled and non-disabled persons are strongly encouraged to register for the workshop.

Date: 23rd / 24th / 25th March 2021
Time: 4 pm - 9 pm
Duration: 5 hours (including an hour's break and light refreshments)

What is a Merdeka History? (Live webinar)

Why did Singapore mark the Bicentennial of Raffles' landing on the island?

Alfian Sa'at's play "Merdeka / 獨立 / சுதந்திரம்" explores the history of colonial rule, overlooked episodes of trauma, anticolonial resistance, as well as the difficulties of getting rid of its hold on our minds.

In this webinar, historians and researchers will propose the writing of a Merdeka (independence) history that will deepen the understanding of our past, and progress towards a more open and inclusive future.

This webinar will be free to watch on the Ethos Books Facebook page on Saturday, 6 Feb, 10.30AM. Sign language interpretation (SgSL) will be provided.

Date: 6 Feburary 2021
Duration: 10.30am-12.00pm

The Launch of the Inclusive Young Company (iYC)

SRT is partnering with Access Path Productions to launch their very first theatre training programme for diverse needs and abilities. iYC is a holistic acting programme for young persons and adults between the ages of 16 – 35, who identify as persons with disabilities. Sharing its goals with SRT’s acclaimed The Young Company (TYC) acting programme, it aims to equip and nurture selected actors-in-training with the confidence, transferable employment skills, and communication techniques that they will need to shine onstage, as well as in their career of choice. It features professional masterclasses and mentorship – led by international artist Grace Lee-Khoo – which will provide a platform for the development of participants' creative potential as independent performers and theatre-makers.
