The Monster In The Mirror

16 year old Jane is constantly bullied in school and scolded at home by her overbearing mother. Worse still, she is continually tormented by the self-critical voices in her head.

That is, until she receives a magic mirror from a flamboyant Fairy God Delivery Beng. She peers into this mirror and finds herself face to face with someone who has been living in her head all her life - a monster.

“The Monster in the Mirror Musical” is a hilarious and touching musical about what it means to love yourself. Singapore's first digi-theatrical musical experience not to be missed!

Digital Stream: 28 March, 8pm – 4 April, 11.59pm

Can a blind woman feel fear, anger and empathy?

Why do some assume a wheelchair user is automatically intellectually disabled?

Is it possible for someone with very low vision to create beautiful works of art that intimately capture the beauty of human anatomy?

A 'sword' fight. A Ferrari wheelchair. Wires that take on a life of their own. Harmonies of hope.

Part documentary, part theatrical monologue, Perspectives is a digital exploration about life as Singaporeans with disabilities. Director Peggy Ferroa weaves a narrative of adventures and experiences living with difference.


When Paths Cross – A Monologue by Lim Lee Lee
A blind woman crosses paths – and canes – with an angry man. Should she flee or fight, or can she do more for others?

Wired on Art – Thoughts on Art Making and Life
Visual artist Victor Tan has exhibited all over the world but finds home in a little art studio off Telok Kurau. He shares his thoughts on how sculpting with wire helps him re-examine relationships people have with each other.

A Chair is Still A Chair – A Monologue by Stephanie Esther Fam
What happens when a woman is given a new wheelchair but doesn’t quite connect with it?

See the world through the eyes of a blind woman, take a walk in the shoes of a wheelchair user, and learn how disability brings new perspectives to artmaking. These three stories will set you thinking about who we are as people, in all our wonderous diversity.

‘Perspectives’ is a disability-led film executive produced by Lim Lee Lee

Directed by Peggy Ferroa and Michael Chua
Written by Peggy Ferroa, Lim Lee Lee and Stephanie Esther Fam
Starring Lim Lee Lee, Stephanie Esther Fam, Victor Tan, with music by Harmony Community Choir

A Man Waiting For The Leaves To Fall

A Man Waiting For The Leaves To Fall is a digital performative narration that chronicles the pivotal events in a man's life. This 15-minute-long digital production explores the relationship of the film medium within a new theatre paradigm where theatrical design takes centre stage as characters.

Supported by the National Arts Council Digital Presentation Grant, The Aesthetic Project focuses on the theatrical design language intersecting with screen medium to create a new experience of theatre, in the absence of dialogue and actors.

"I think the best way to explore the evolution of Theatre would be to go back to what we love about theatre - telling the story." Judee Tan, director.

Helmed by director Judee Tan, The Aesthetic Project presents its first digital production, examining themes surrounding broken and lost communication and the societal gaps caused by modern society's rapid evolution that force generations and social tribes apart.

No dialogue. No actors. How do we present a narrative that is driven by theatrical design choices and the camera?

Details: Streaming online from 22 – 31 March
