M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018
The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival’s 2018 theme, Let’s Walk, deals explicitly with feminist politics. Julia Croft’s If there’s not dancing at the revolution, I’m not coming challenges the treatment of women’s bodies in pop culture in an explosive dance show, while Ground Cover Theatre’s Displaced tells a provoking story of female immigrants fleeing in an age where xenophobia, Islamophobia and cross-cultural intolerance are more apparent than ever.
#walkinginbeauty #m1sff Repost from @petrinakow using @RepostRegramApp – My Husband @sunglingun asked me last night after helping take these Full Run pictures which was my favourite story. I said it’s like asking me which is my favourite child. People under-estimate how nerve-wrecking telling personal stories is. It’s way easier to hide behind a character but to stand in front of a crowd and tell your true, intimate stories is akin to standing naked, spilling your guts and ripping your heart open for all to see. I salute these 6 brave women for taking the plunge with me and allowing me to play masak masak with their insides. #WalkinginBeauty opens tonight! . . Esplanade Recital Studios 8pm Runs until Saturday! Grab your tickets now! #m1sff ##letswalk
