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!

About the Charity
Centre 42 is small - small team, small spaces, small works. But if 2020 has shown us anything, it's that the smallest things can have the largest impact. From a small blue house on Waterloo Street, we have grown to be home to more than 170 artists and theatre collectives, supported the development of over 200 new theatrical projects, and brought theatre magic to more than 40,000 audiences.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CONTINUE GROWING THE THEATRE SCENE.
This year, we returned 42 Waterloo Street, our home since 2014. We've not only lost spaces for our artists and programmes, but also an important source of rental income. With the arts sector adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, many arts-workers and companies are trying our best to survive financially. We hope to continue in the small ways we can, to offer avenues of creation, documentation and training workshops and presentations that will sustain the livelihoods and spirits of our art-making community.
Centre 42 is a non-profit theatre development space committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage. Our mission is to:
- nurture talent and incubate content of text-based works for the stage;
- build public awareness and appreciation for Singapore theatre; and
- be a focal point for research, documentation and critical discourse on the development of Singapore theatre.
