MICROMANAGE OVERWORK EXASPERATE by Dark Matter Theatrics
About Campaignends 16 Oct 2016, 12 AM
Help Dark Matter Theatrics raise funds for their 2016 staging of "MICROMANAGE OVERWORK EXASPERATE (M.O.E.)".
Everybody's an expert on education. Everybody's started a sentence with, "Last time when I was in school..." at least once. And everybody - come on, admit it - has had moments where they felt someone else hadn't been taught properly in school.
What would it be like then, to step into the shoes of an educator? How do the people, whose job it is to teach our children, manage to uphold the standards that are set upon them - by society and by themselves? We are experts on our own education - should we also consider ourselves experts on educators?
Using material gleaned from interviews with a wide range of teachers - primary to secondary, in-service to retired, elite independent schools to neighbourhood institutions - M.O.E. seeks to explore the unspoken sides of education, and give voice to the true experiences, struggles and successes of some of our nation's most invisible heroes - our teachers.
Everybody's indebted to a teacher, in one way or another. If you've ever met a teacher you loved - or remember one you hated - then this play is for you.

DARK MATTER THEATRICS aims to engage people from all walks of life with honest and impactful storytelling. Our collective consists of playwright-director Christopher Fok, actor Lian Sutton and playwright Marcia Vanderstraaten.
Centre 42 is a theatre development space established in 2014. We are committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage. 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.
