Short Description
Reviewing Performance and Forum Theatre in Local Performance Space
Sinclair Timothy Ang

The authorities are wary that both Forum Theatre and Performance Art might be used politically to threaten social stability. As such, practitioners of these art forms have a hard time getting a public entertainment license. Even if a license is granted, any non-scripted performance—and Performance Art that does not come with a script—will not be funded by the National Arts Council (NAC). In addition, the artists are required to deposit a sizeable security deposit.
