Ma Courage

Mother Courage and Her Children was written in 1939 in response to the rise in facism and Nazism in Germany. Brecht chose to locate this story in the 17th century’s Thirty Years' War and it follows the fortunes of Anna Frieling and her three children. Determined to create opportunity out of crisis, Anna’s efforts ultimately prove fruitless and lead to the loss of all her children. The play serves as a moral compass for anyone who seeks to benefit from calamity and suffering. Ma Courage takes loose inspiration from Brecht's original, relocating the play and its concerns to a Singaporean context. The play is performed by the LASALLE Diploma in Performance students , in collaboration with the LASALLE Diploma in Theatre Production and Management programme.

Director: Samantha Scott-Blackhall
Based upon: Mother Courage and Her Children by Bertolt Brecht

Update:
The show is now available for online viewing from now till Sunday, 30 May, 2359:

Perspectives

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

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
