Four of the performances in the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2015 will be developments or reimaginings of works previously staged, from as early as 1999 to as recent as 2013. This talk, hosted and moderated by Artistic Director Sean Tobin, will gather Fringe ’15 artists Loo Zihan (With/Out), Pat Toh (Terra Incognita), Joel Tan (Mosaic) and Alvin Tan (untitled women) to discuss the development and exposure of local work and artistry, as well as reimaginings towards their 2015 restagings. The discussion touches on the artists’ inspirations, challenges and strategies, and aims to invite you for a closer look into their processes of art-making.

This talk is a Fringe Activity presented by the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2015, in collaboration with Centre 42 as part of our Living Room programme.

The Living Room is a programme by Centre 42 that welcomes chat and conversation. Through focused but casual dialogues and face-to-face exchanges, this programme encourages participants to re-examine trends, happenings, people (on & off-stage) and phenomena in Singapore theatre.
