Nonsense
Devised & Performed by Down Syndrome Association (Singapore)
Conceptualised, Written & Directed by Jean Ng
Assistant Director, Julius Foo

Nonsense is a story about refugees.
It is also a story about us.
War is nonsense.
Millions losing their families and homes is nonsense.
And then,
What we take as sense may sometimes be nonsense.
What we take as nonsense may sometimes be beauty and hope.

Nonsense is an original play devised and performed by young people with Down syndrome and other intellectual differences.

The Box
Devised & Performed by St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School
Written & Directed by Dwayne Lau

In a world saturated by social media and its influences on lifestyles, latest trends and body image, the temptation is to curate a pseudo perfect way of life. The Box explores the struggles that teenagers face negotiating this superficial world, filtering away flaws and blemishes so that all that remains is a hazy tint of reality.

The Untitled Play (working title)
Staged by UNSAID
Directed by Serena Ho

A new play that will draw from crowd-sourced stories on mental illness and our attitudes towards this in contemporary society. Can we make space for multiple realities? This work is staged by a collective of young doers committed to transforming the untold narratives of Singapore into meaningful and engaging works of art.
