Year in Review 2021
JENG JENG JENG…! Year in Review is back! Where did 2021 go? How did the year unravel, and where have we arrived at?  In a year where the arts has had to acquiesce to multiple rules, hopeful for a return to normalcy, 2021 had us hurtling through an unknown abyss of multiple emotions best captured through this year’s theme: JENG JENG JENG! From anticipation, to tentative excitement, shock, surprise and even the indescribable, our beloved colloquialism JENG JENG JENG covers it all. Into its

Purana Residences by Hemang Yadav
Purana Residences allegorizes Indian mythology as a residential apartment, inhabited by well-known legendary characters. The play scrutinizes a variety of situations faced by numerous married couples from Indian epics, legends and folktales, albeit with a modern-day lens. In doing so, the play explores the relevance of these stories to our contemporary world.

Year in Review 2020
How do we make sense of 2020? Year in Review 2020 is an invitation to the Singapore theatre community to gather and unpack this year, to try and make meaning, or to just find a space to decompress. For some, this year has been a journey of opportunity and learning; for others, a year of unwanted change and a yearning for the way it was before. It’s been described as a pause, a loss, an unlearning and more. How have we been impacted, as art makers and workers, to audiences and supporters? How have yo

Centre 42 is turning SIX on 21 Apr 2020! Come celebrate with us on Zoom with a reading of “WRITES” by Robin Loon – originally performed at our opening – and a toast to mark the occasion.   Our sixth birthday was supposed to have panned out differently. Since we were returning 42 Waterloo Street to the National Arts Council on 1 May, 21 Apr was supposed to be a last hurrah in the blue house before we moved out. Planned with over 20 artists and friends, our sixth birthday would’ve been an evenin
