Has the term "site-specific" been misused by too many productions this year? Are emerging theatre groups currently creating more exciting works than established companies?
All this, and more, will be up for discussion at our final Living Room event of 2018. Over 150 local theatre productions lit up our stages this year, and we would like to invite you to a casual evening of conversations about some of most noteworthy trends in Singapore theatre.
Reviewers from Centre 42's Citizens' Reviews programme and arts website ArtsEquator will begin the evening by sharing some of their observations, based on the shows that they watched and wrote about this year. You can then pick a topic and engage the reviewers in small-group discussions. Year in Reviews is an opportunity to reflect on the performances you watched, as well as the wider local theatre landscape today.
