This play is about fighting. Does the hero fight so that tender hands seek out his or her inflicted wounds? Tears come after blood and sweat. And perhaps they can only ever come after blood and sweat.
After an 18 month-long residency with The Substation’s Directors’ Lab, Patricia Toh will present Warpaint, a play about violence and women. Featuring actors Fanny Kee and Xin Xuan, the play takes an unflinching look at a mother and daughter relationship, and violence.
In preparation for this production, Patricia trained at a boxing gym for six months to explore and challenge the limits of the physical body. The play will also have guest appearances by real-life boxers, Efasha Kamarudin, Gullnaz Baig, Hui Yeng Hui and Ang Yen Ni.
