Making Art for Everyone

Dear Friends,

As artists, we try every day to make art that reaches out to everyone - art that transcends time, and art that touches people from all walks of life. That's why we currently have two companies of artists working at full tilt to breathe modern sensibilities into classics like Boeing Boeing and The Bald Soprano. You can get to know some of these incredible artists in this issue, before you join us at the theatre.

For all our good intentions, however, we're reminded every once in a while of how far we still have to go, and how much more we can do. In that regard, Alfian Sa'at, our Resident Playwright, offers some essential context on the controversy that recently erupted over race and representation in local films, which we hope will give you some food for thought.

See you at the theatre!

On Race and Stereotypes in Casting
In recent days, a firestorm of controversy has erupted over racial stereotyping in local films. But, as Alfian Sa’at points out, that’s hardly an isolated problem –  minority-race actors in Singapore have long suffered from a lack of representation in the arts.
