The Vault: Lite is an eight-week residency aimed at the creation of contemporary responses to Singapore Theatre classics. The pilot edition of The Vault: Lite saw five projects selected from an open call, each responding to a play of their choice.
Since January 2021, the artists-in-residence of The Vault: Lite — Cheryl Tan and Isaiah Lee, Ke Weiliang, Lim Si Hui, Lim Shien Hian and Ruzaini Mazani — have been exploring and experimenting with local plays along the theme "A Whole New World?", inspired by monumental changes to human lives brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic since 2019.
Now, at the end of the residency, the artists will share their ideas and interpretations of the plays through reimagined contexts, mediums and genres.
Join us at the sharing session of the pilot edition of The Vault: Lite on 26 February 2021 and see how our theatre histories can be reinvented for a whole new world through the five responses:
