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 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!
