About Campaignends 12 Aug 2018, 11:59 PM
"Translating Pretty Butch" is her current project endeavoring to bring the play to a different audience through translation & re-conceptualization. For its first iteration, the play is translated into mandarin & performed by Taiwanese actors. Documentary photographer Charmaine Poh will aim to capture feminine masculinity in Taiwan as a response to Liting's writing. This installation-play hopes to challenge gender perceptions through the interaction of visual art & theatre.
"Translating Pretty Butch" will be presented at Taipei Arts Festival on 11-12 Aug'18 as part of Producer List, a program focusing on overseas work.
Bringing the work overseas is not easy. We are operating on a thin budget of $13,400 & are still $5,000 short. Money raised through this campaign pays for the Singaporean team's travel & production cost to realise its first Mandarin staging. Thereafter, the play will be performed by a local cast in SG.
Thank you for being our underwire! Your support & positivity will help us bring Pretty Butch to the world!
