IT'S NOT FAIR

FREE Interactive performance on Xenophobia for Secondary Schools 

‘It’s Not Fair’ follows the daily life of students who come into conflict because of their differences. Wang Wang is a new citizen of Singapore who has come from Hong Kong. Because he speaks and acts differently, Funi, a Singaporean boy, treats him differently.


During the COVID-19 Epidemic, Funi makes use of the situation to hurl discriminatory and xenophobic remarks at Wang Wang. He even got his friends online to cyber-bully Wang Wang. Eventually, the hurt Wang Wang decides to transfer to another school.


In this film we learn that xenophobia is a type of baseless discrimination. It is a learnt behaviour that can be unlearnt. In the current state of the world, our society needs kindness more than ever. How should we live with each other in the same country if we cannot look past our differences?

FREE Interactive Show on Xenophobia and Cyberbullying for Primary Schools 

Increasingly, children are being made fun of because of their differences. Nathan, a Singaporean Chinese-Filipino, is being made fun of by Lian, a Chinese girl who is constantly putting on a fake accent. He is being told to go back home even though he is home. Situations escalate when Lian pushes it too far and parents are involved.

What does it take to live together in harmony, especially in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society like Singapore?

 

Can behaviour that is learnt from our parents be unlearnt?

 

How does one move forward from an episode of discrimination?

 

How do we learn to stay true to ourselves despite what others feel?

Haters Gonna Hate

FREE Interactive performance on Cyber-bullying for Secondary Schools 

Adam is annoying. So annoying that Jaime completely detests him and wants nothing to do with him. As the Student Council President, she orders her VP to ban him from the WhatsApp group after he incessantly spams the chat with his vlogs.

Jaime goes to great lengths to spread her hate for Adam, even creating a fake Instagram just so she can attack him online. However, the truth gets revealed and Jaime is forced to face her dark secrets.

Watch as Adam and Jaime navigate through the dark wasteland of cyber-bullying. Will they find an ending to this digital nightmare?

Stay together! Stand apart!

An interactive show commissioned by the Singapore Discovery Centre

This interactive short film follows the lives of three people before, during, and after the Circuit Breaker in Singapore. These people represent the different kinds of behaviour we see during the pandemic.

As the circuit breaker progresses, we see some people doing thoughtless and reckless things, perhaps out of boredom or defiance, but these can have real consequences on others. 

 

When will people realise that some of their actions may be unlawful and irresponsible? When will people stop being selfish and think of the welfare of others? When will people start to give our frontline healthcare workers the respect and recognition they deserve? Truly, is there strength in diversity?

What people have to say about our online shows

...It is great to be able to share this unique experience with the rest of the school. Kudos to the team for pulling this off. It was indeed a very unique experience for both the students and the teachers to not just experience a theatre session but a forum theatre session virtually. Where students have the choice to take on the role of a character and advise the characters in the play. The focus of this programme made it even more special, where it discussed the sensitive issue on foreign-local integration at a time when relations between countries and their people are extremely tense. Yet, exactly because it is so sensitive, it is all the more important for us to talk about it, and this platform served that purpose, allowing participants to openly discuss and share their thoughts and opinions. Logistically wise, the videos were well-recorded and the tension was built very nicely to empower and engage students to want to contribute during the forum session. During the forum session, the facilitators also did a great job eliciting responses from the different students and pushing the discussion further to get students to think about what they could have done if faced with such a problem. I also liked the incorporation of other online platforms, like Mentimeter to get responses from all the students to ensure they don't feel left out. Overall, it was an eye-opening experience and all of us throughly enjoyed ourselves. I hope more schools would take up the opportunity to try this out and kick start the conversation on this pressing social issue.
