ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
AND SUDDENLY I DISAPPEAR: The Singapore ‘d’ Monologues is an international theatrical dialogue of difference, disability, and what it is to be human, from opposite sides of the world. Inspired by previously unrecorded lived experience, fictionalised monologues will be presented across multiple languages (spoken/projected/visual), incorporating aesthetics of access. This performance will set an important precedent: the first multilingual, intercultural, Deaf and disability-led theatre project created between the UK and Singapore.
Award-winning playwright Kaite O’Reilly, and internationally respected director/actor-trainer Phillip Zarrilli will lead the team, joined by veteran disability arts practitioner Sara Beer, Deaf RADA trained actress Sophie Stone and Deaf UK-based Singapore-born Ramesh Meyyappan with his innovative visual performance skills. Together with principal collaborator, Peter Sau and Singaporean performers Grace Khoo, Lim Lee Lee, Danial Bawthan, Stephanie Fam and Agnes Lim, the performance will open up a much-needed discourse of disability in quality, accessible disability-led work, never experienced before in a home-grown Singaporean project.
