Many would not know, but our unique Story Challenge format was first unveiled to the public in 2006 right at Chinatown itself!
So it seems somewhat nostalgic to be invited by Chinatown Point to perform our English Story Challenge show for them on 22 Dec 2012.
They performed a new version of “Toy Story”, and ran up and down the stage so that they effectively widen their space to include the audience.
Next, audiences provide story topics and conditions for the actors to improvise and create new content on the spot – in just 5 minutes! They performed “The 3 miserable little pigs”, which had elements of thwarted Christmas shopping due to MRT delays, bus drivers going on strike, and the ponding issue in Orchard Road! A very local story indeed
*Story Challenge is an original improvisational storytelling activity, created and organised by The Theatre Practice. The Story Challenge format has been developed into school assembly shows, training workshops, a nationwide tournament, community road shows, and more. For more information, please visit our websites:
