SYNOPSIS

Description

For 2018, our laboratories will focus on responses to and reinterpretation of texts. This first laboratory is centred around Haresh Sharma's Talk 1first performed in 1994, subsequently reworked in 2000, and published as part of the anthology Shorts 1For this series, our Artistic Director Alvin Tan will be working with Theatre GUMBO from Japan, along with artists from Singapore and Malaysia, including Bani Haykal, Ghafir Akbar, Gloria Tan and Rizman Putra.

Revisiting Talk

In this iteration of The Orange Playground, the team will be exploring new performance vocabularies through the genres of comedy and physical theatre. 

Talk 1 is an ensemble piece where 3 actors play a host of characters in a talk show. Stories of cinema bullying and gender discrimination are played out in both comic and tragic fashion. The work was originally directed by Alvin Tan and Kok Heng Leun in 1994.
