The Pitch

Premiers 31 August 2020

Pangdemonium, Singapore Repertory Theatre and WILD RICE are delighted to jointly announce the release of The Pitch, a short film that aims to entertain audiences even as it shines a light on the complex challenges facing arts companies in Singapore during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the COVID-19 pandemic ravages theatres around the world, a motley trio of theatre companies band together to create an urgent project that’s pitch-perfect for our times.

But will their noble mission survive cash-flow problems, creative differences and clashing egos? Can they keep the drama off-stage? And do they know what the hell they are doing?

At a time when going to the theatre is strictly off-limits, The Pitch cheekily raises the curtain on three theatre companies as they struggle to make art – and make peace! – with one another. Go behind the scenes with us and, through acclaimed film-maker Ken Kwek’s subversive lens, see Ivan Heng, Gaurav Kripalani and Adrian Pang as you’ve never seen them before!

The Pitch – a 20-minute short film, premiered on thepitch.sg on 31 August (Monday), and is available to watch for free.
