The Theatre Practice – Who Art Thou?
Established in 1965 and slightly older than Singapore by more than a month, The Theatre Practice has etched out a pivotal and long-cherished spot in local theatre and cultural history. We have painstakingly ridden out the storms of the last half-century, found ourselves indebted to the staggering contributions of generations gone by, and emerged stronger than ever.
Through the years, The Theatre Practice has marched forward upon the strength of our bilingualism, while pursuing the ideals of “staying firmly rooted to the local, expanding our awareness of the world at large, seeking commonalities yet accepting differences, and embracing one and all in harmony”. We continually introduce classic gems, while also encouraging original creations; we strive to inject local flavour in our pieces, while also keeping ourselves open to the infinite possibilities in the global arena. From the very beginning, The Theatre Practice has been a pioneer in Arts Education, bringing countless workshops and performances into schools, and nurturing several generations of Singaporeans.
Forging into the new century, The Theatre Practice awaits fresh beginnings and challenges. We will spare no effort in presenting highly acclaimed quality productions, and see no limits in exploring original, experimental works – as we aim to steadily build upon the foundations of Singapore theatre. Let us welcome the future in eager anticipation, for there is much to look forward to!
