The history of theatre goes back a thousand years and has seen much since its birth in Greece. The structure of the theatre script, its language, and how it brings across thoughts and emotions have also been through the different eras and changed with the times.
Beginning March 2015, (every 1st Wednesday of the month for 12 sessions), Nelson Chia (Artistic Director, Nine Years Theatre) or Kok Heng Leun (Artistic Director, Drama Box) will take you through the years: from the classic Greek tragedies and unmissable Shakespeare and other masters to the more modern Postdramatic genres, including a segment on local plays.
Note: Participants are required to read the scripts before attending the talk. We will post the materials online prior to the date.
In light of the lack of new Chinese scripts in the local theatre scene, Drama Box launched a new playwright series in 2007 under its training platform – Blanc Space. The company hopes to encourage more people to write and produce new scripts for staging. To date, we have successfully produced more than 17 original Chinese language scripts.
