  • [Review] Ibsen: Ghosts – 你可以决定的生死真相

    3 Aug 2016 真人真事和舞台表演如此强烈的对比,却又紧紧地交织在一起,凸显了这一切真实的不确定性。然后我发现,在眼前活生生发生的事情,包括那被吐得一地的红酒和充满整个剧场的气味,都只是表演...
  • [Review] We Used To Be Close needs to brew a little longer

    9 Jun 2016 The Young Adults novels in Yishun Library jumpstarted my love for fiction. I very quickly moved on to discover the...
  • [Review] GRIND: Inside-Out of the Queer Lair

    8 Apr 2016 20160408 Review Grind Inside Out of the Queer Lair Shar Pi’ee, co-writer for GRIND, facilitates our entry to the Blackbox...
  • [Review] 我选择下车

    7 Apr 2016 看到朋友在脸书分享了将会出席新山暗房的《面惧》活动,看了介绍觉得有意思,让我决定”跨海”回国参与。《面惧》主要围绕在”治安问题”和”网路社交媒体”两个议题,探讨在当今社会...
  • [Review] White Rabbit Red Rabbit – A play that intends to poison your mind

    28 Jan 2016 Is this theatre? The play is essentially a cold reading for the performer, like reciting a passage for Oral Examination. Mostly,...
  • 随你定义的小剧场

    27 Jul 2015 到底要多小才算“小”?滨海艺术中心的剧院,一千九百五十个座位,那肯定不算小;戏剧中心剧院,六百一十五个座位,那好像也不算小;那六百以下就算小了吗?三百以下呢?一百以下?好像没有人硬性规定过。
  • [Review] 超越经典意义的家乡剧场

    7 Jun 2015 “现在进行式”的意思,是这部老剧本的现代版吗?海报中那些古典的人物造型似乎告诉我它不是。欧洲古典造型配上东南亚热带乡村景色,这是颠覆原著的大胆创意吗?经典的西方写实戏剧又和现在的亚庇有什么关系呢?
  • [Review] A Bird’s Eye View

    3 Feb 2015 It seems timely to be discussing the subject matter explored in this playscript given recent upheavals against faith and religion across continents. Racism, xenophobia, betrayals and exclusions...
  • [Review]《蘑菇记事》- 你在厕所里蘑菇些什么?

    7 Aug 2014 两位演员平易近人的表演方式,让在场的小朋友们笑声此起彼落,场面顿时活络起来。接着大家期待已久,关着静静不动的大箱子开始启动了!那看起来像个大盒子的舞台,有着重重的装置...
  • [Review] FLUID: The role reversal of the theatre and the audience

    10 Jul 2014 FLUID is said to be an exploration of the definition of theatre and its meaning, specifically how it matters to the director himself. Would there be a naked cashier...
  • [Review] 一场这个与那个的演出

    9 Jul 2014 《水往上流》里的二元关系则简单许多且矛盾够大,像跷跷板上坐了两个体重相当又很顽皮的小孩,整体过程逻辑清晰,情绪起伏明确。创作团队在简单的二元概念基础上创造了许多变化,无论是台词、视觉还是听觉效果都惊喜连连...
  • [Review] 看不见的印记?

    2 Jul 2014 观看这部戏的时候,不经意地将自己投射到爸爸贺先知的角色当中。曾经叛逆,曾经那么熟悉的“怨叹阮老爸”。虽然不像贺先知般走强硬路线,却也当过一名愤世嫉俗的少年。到了离乡背井的现在,我又像是变成了贺湘仪。我是怎样走到...
  • [Review] The Unconventional Space of Curiosity and Attachment

    9 Jun 2014 The play employs rounds of powerful dialectic crossfire taking place from pubs to bedrooms to debate the issue...
  • [Review] The Merchant of Venice

    18 May 2014 I admire Guthrie’s choice to shift the focus onto the text this time. The fine cast, a mix of local and overseas actors, well sustains the complexity of the play...
  • [Review] As It Fades

    18 May 2014 I especially like the pair work done in groups by most of the cast. For example how Jessica and Yarra quietly walk towards and stare at each other’s reflection, peering through the structures...
  • [Review] The Rise & Fall Of Little Voice

    10 May 2014 I feel that the real protagonist of the show was really the musical culture that this show celebrated. The pictures that was hung from the stage ceiling commemorated the famous divas...
