How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Every bit counts toward making this blue house conducive for theatre-making! Thank you :)
Thank you thank you! This helps us maintain our free online resources about Singapore Theatre.
Yay! You are supporting our efforts to document insights into creating new works.
Awesome investment! Developing a good piece of theatre takes a fair bit of time and resources - so thank you for supporting that :)
Big or Small, your contribution will be appreciated. We're looking for a community of believers in the magic of good theatre -AND- We're looking for passionate patrons who believe in our work!
Occupying a pre-war bungalow along Waterloo Street, we have made this blue house a home for independent artists and collectives; a safe space to trial and create new works; a repository of our local theatre history and resources.
The Centre's objectives are:
1.To nurture talent and incubate content, particularly in the area of text-based works and playwriting;
2.To build public awareness and appreciation for Singapore theatre; and
3.To be a focal point for research, documentation and critical discourse on the development of Singapore theatre.
The Vault and the Living Room are regular presentations open to the public to attend showings and participate in discussions. Admission to these events are free! (but please give what you can at the door)
Basement Workshop and Guest Room are residency programmes catered for artists creating new works.
Boiler Room and the Garage are discipline-specific training programmes for playwrights and dramaturgs.
Book Den and the Repository are resource centres for playscripts and theatre production ephemera.
Citizens' Reviews brings emerging critics together to hone their opinion-writing for theatre.
All the above programmes are FREE for participating artists and audiences. Because we believe in investing in the development of artists and their craft, and in providing access to audiences to understand the process of making work.
We really heavily on government funding (never enough), rental (barely covers utilities) and individual contributions (always much needed) to make these all happen! Help us advance the development of Singapore theatre-making.
