Centre 42 is thrilled to present our next edition of Headline Acts at Singapore International Festival of Arts 2024 (SIFA2024). In line with the festival theme, which explores various futures – known, unknowable, imminent, and already-here – we are inviting playwrights to dream up their own headlines from the future, and write pieces in response to them!

Dramaturgs In Practice (DIP) is an intermediate-level course within Centre 42's Dramaturgs' Practice Development Programme.

The next iteration of the Playwright's Professional Development Residency (PPDR) will run from May 2024 and March 2025. This comes off the back of a joyous year-long pilot run that has helped shape how and why we are holding this residency. Our inaugural residents greatly benefited from the time and space to reflect on their work, the challenge and rigour of this residency, as well as the camaraderie of working as a group. We have been so thrilled and privileged to witness their growth as artists.
DRAMATURGS & is a new capsule series of roundtable conversations centering the work of and relationship between dramaturgs and their artistic collaborators. Dramaturgical thinking and application is integral in the work of all artists, yet a dramaturg’s role affords a dedicated lens that can expand and challenge artistic decisions. In cosy and candid sessions, we aim to unpack the relational, intricate and often invisible work of dramaturgs in creative processes and within artistic teams.
Start: 11 March 2024

You own a 3 room flat in Toa Payoh.
You have 3 ungrateful children, of which, one can't stop thinking about her inheritance, the other can't remember who you are and the last doesn't even want to acknowledge you as her own. The only one you can trust can't even stand up on her own two feet. What do you do? Washing dirty linen in public couldn't get any dirtier than this. Base on a true story, but of course with drama sikit, Awake wit
