The Lesson was first performed at the Singapore International Festival of Arts 2015 to critical acclaimed. Together as part of the trilogy of It Won’t Be Too Long, the impactful participatory performance was lauded by local media as one of the productions of the year in 2015. We have since adapted the piece and brought it to Taiwan in December 2016, and will be bringing it to the International Community Arts Festival in Rotterdam in March 2017. The piece was also piloted as a theatre programme for youths at two local secondary schools in 2016. This July, we will be bringing The Lesson to three community spaces in Singapore.

About The Lesson

In any place where land is limited, space – both physical and psychological – comes at a premium. The Lesson asks questions about what forces are at work in shaping our space, and whether there is enough space for a shared heterotopia. The audience of The Lesson is presented with a scenario whereby the city has made plans for the development of an old housing estate. However, there is little space left and therefore an existing facility in the area must be demolished. What will stay, and what will go? The audience enters this scenario and participates in the decision-making process. Under the guidance of the facilitators, the audience will learn about the costs, risks, stakes and sacrifices that come with creating a community.
