Lim Tzay Chuen
Lim Tzay Chuen designs and constructs 'alterations', 'gaps' or 'delays'
that affect the status quo of our behaviours and perceptions; he
produces interventions that are typically 'discovered' rather than
'exhibited'. Lim's works are the result of an intricate but collaborative
venture with specific organisations. In the past Lim sometimes described
his work as trying to get institutions to 'entertain the possible';
he now talks about offering 'creative solutions' to 'possible problems'.
Theatre Training & Research Programme
A 3-year, full time professional actor-training programme
which immerses students in 4 Asian Classical Theatre systems while
also using modern actor training techniques from the West. Informed
by the unique experience of Contemporary Theatre in Singapore from
1965, and inspired by the artistic vision of the late Kuo Pao Kun,
this multicutural programme aspires to nurture highly-skilled, technically
adapt, critically aware, socially engaged and artistically autonomous
actors, capable of contributing imaginatively to the theatre making
