The Box
Devised & Performed by St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School
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.

A classic boy-meets-girl story in modern day Singapore. Or is it?
