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.

About the Charity

Centre 42 is a theatre development space committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage.

In the last 6 years, we have transformed the pre-war bungalow along Waterloo Street into a well-loved 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.

Our 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.

As we strive to do even more for the scene in the coming years, we need your help! With theatres and creation spaces now closed, and many arts freelancers are without jobs for the foreseeable months, we hope to offer avenues of creation, documentation and training workshops and presentations that will sustain the livelihoods of our art-making community.

Every contribution enables us to continue growing Singapore's theatre scene through our myriad of programmes and initiatives. As a grant recipient of the National Arts Council for FY2020-22, we are funded partially for our work. We still need to raise at least 45% of our annual operations costs in order to sustain growing our scene in local theatre. We need YOUR help!
