As part of the inaugural True Colours Festival, one local group and one international group will be presenting the world premiere of a brand new Double Bill of theatrical works over the weekend of the festival!
Presented by Australia’s No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability (NSA) and Singapore’s Very Special Theatrics (VST), I Forgot To Remember To Forget and My Home Is Not A Shell will celebrate the talents of theatre artistes with disabilities. In I Forgot to Remember to Forget, NSA presents an experimental theatre piece where performers identify as living with memory problems. Four performers share their experiences, sometimes traumatic, of acquiring a disability and how we learn to accept those changes, and re-learn (or forget) everything we’ve ever known.
Later on, VST will present My Home Is Not A Shell, a collaborative work in progress with NSA. Led by artistic directors Alirio Zavarce from NSA and R. Chandran from VST, the performance was developed over a series of workshops and will feature the VST performers in a devised piece that follows a crab who’s lost his shell and home, raising questions of how Singapore itself can define home in its constant state of change.
Watch as these artists showcase their innate theatrical talents and present a unique, creative view of pertinent societal issues in this exciting new double bill, only at the True Colours Festival this March.
My Home Is Not A Shell and I Forgot to Remember to Forget play at the SportsSG Auditorium (6 Stadium Walk) from 24th – 25th March. Admission is free, but places must be reserved here
