With no news of when theatres will reopen again, it has certainly put a damper in our social calendar this season. It’s clear in these uncertain times, we need the Arts more than ever. In an unprecedented collaboration, the three big wigs of Singapore’s theatre scene have come together for a satirical short film, The Pitch.
Written by Ken Kwek and Adrian Pang, The Pitch is a cheeky film about the struggle of making art during the time of coronavirus. This irreverent and meta short film will see how Adrian Pang of Pangdemonium, Ivan Heng of WILD RICE and Gaurav Kripalani of Singapore Repertory Theatre work together to solve issues such as cash-flow amidst clashing egos and try to keep the drama off-stage.
You can catch The Pitch streaming on Youtube from 31 August 2020 at 9 pm. While it’s free to stream, do consider donating to The Pitch’s Ray of Hope page. After all, we do want to keep our theatres around when the pandemic eventually subsides.
There will even be a live conversation moderated by actor and former Arts NMP Janise Koh about the creative process for the pitch and the future of theatre in Singapore on 7 September 2020 at 9 pm. Let’s pitch in and do our part to ensure the Arts have a future in Singapore.
