What does this mean?
It means that we would be able to train ourselves better, for our energy to fill a bigger rehearsal space. We would be ready to accommodate more actors coming to train for our jam sessions. It also means we most probably do not need to source for short-term rentals of bigger studios to hold rehearsals for a bigger stage.
However, this also means that a sum of money is to be spent on fitting out the new space. A big portion of our budget would be committed to installing a sprung floor. Solid surfaces such as concrete floors are not resilient and can cause bodily injuries. The training we practise at Nine Years Theatre requires a sprung floor, which is made to absorb and return energy during movement.
The fund raised isn't just about the studio, but is about our ability to train better, create better, and to benefit the theatre community better. We are grateful for your support!
About the Charity
Nine Years Theatre is a Singapore Mandarin theatre company.
The company focuses on the re-imagination of classic work and the creation of new work. Our Mandarin productions (with English surtitles) have attracted audiences from all backgrounds with their consistency in quality and a cultural sensibility in translation and adaptation.
Nine Years Theatre has a strong emphasis on actor training, our works are therefore often being described as grounded in the actors' art. We are the only company in Singapore that works with an ensemble of actors that train regularly on a long-term basis via systematic methods. Furthermore, we also share these training methods and philosophy with the community through classes and open training platforms.
The company explores ways of holding dialogue sessions with the audience in order to engage them beyond the productions. Our efforts are rooted in the belief that audiences should not merely consume art, but be offered an opportunity to discuss art.
