Centre 42’s Late-Night Texting is back for its third edition as part of the Singapore Night Festival on 24 and 25 August 2018. This year, visitors are invited to experience two nights of theatrical magic at the blue house at 42 Waterloo Street. They will be treated to over 30 performances by four newly-formed or up-and-coming local groups, which will be taking place in various spaces around the compound from sunset at 7pm all the way until 11pm.
- “Eat My Shorts” by Dark Matter Theatrics: Enjoy bite-sized theatre in which the unofficial rule is “minimal fuss, maximum fun”! “Eat My Shorts” is a series of 10-minute short plays written by local playwrights and performed by a small cast of four actors.
- “ETA: 9MIN” by Main Tulis Group: Seven playwrights from the playwright collective will present dramatised readings of original nine-minute Malay- and English-language plays in two recurring sessions, themed “Arrival” and “Departure”.
- “Legends of the Islands” by GroundZ-0: Singapore is not just one island, but made up of many, many islands! “Legends of the Islands” tells the stories of four of these islands in the style of a multilingual street wayang performance, performed in English, Malay, Mandarin and Hokkien.
- “Lovebites” by The Second Breakfast Company: What does it mean to love and be in love in Singapore? Have our ideas of love changed over time? “Lovebites” explores the universal theme through four pairs of excerpts from old and new Singaporean plays.
Independent local bookstore BooksActually will be returning with a pop-up store selling a range of books and magazines, as well as a curated programme of panel discussions and book launches. Coffee Bandits will also be bringing their bright yellow food truck back to our courtyard to keep visitors full and hydrated through the night.
