The following is an extract from the essay/writing.The full version can be purchased online here.

Artistic practices in Singapore do not function with total autonomy. Tan Chong Kee’s (2001) essay “Can the Co-opted Speak?” points out that everyone is being co-opted. Theatre practitioners in Singapore have to consider this position especially when they carry out their operations. The Necessary Stage (TNS) is no different, and while there is a paradox, its survival in Singapore would be threatened should it insist on greater autonomy.
