M1 Peer Pleasure is a youth theatre festival with a social conscience. This year, we are taking a closer look at how people with disabilities live in Singapore. Where are their voices and stories in our everyday? In a country that prizes efficiency, productivity and material success, can people with disabilities have a place in our economy, schools and community?
Unable to stage live performances as usual at the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we will be presenting the festival online from 4 - 16 August; with majority of the programmes offered for free!
Devised and created by: Gloria Tan and Samantha Bounaparte
Created and performed by: Republic Polytechnic, Diploma in Arts and Theatre Management & Operation Theatre Interest Group
