Tracing the Sunrise
28.11.2020, 6:00am - 7:30am
In 1987, Taiwanese artist and U-Theatre founder Liu Jing-Min introduced Practice to training exercises based on the techniques of Polish dramatist Jerzy Grotowski. Theatre practitioners would gather for outdoor training during sunrise and sunset, using the change in environment to awaken different senses within themselves. This shifting emphasis to actors’ corporalities significantly influenced Practice’s theatre-making during this period. Reuniting for a training session more than 30 years later, join these very same performers as they revisit their artistic roots and reconnect with each other.
Participants: Julius Foo (Theatre Practitioner), Koh Leng Leng, Cindy Sim, Tan Pei Hwee (Theatre Practitioner), Ranice Tay (Associate Artist, Sourcing Within)
Facilitator: Ang Gey Pin (Artistic Director, Sourcing Within)

As Practice Yoga is running, another group of Jian Rens will be dialling in from Labrador Park with another rehearsal favourite… Captain’s Ball!
While the game (and its Practice-only variation of “captain’s ball on knees”) is used as a warm-up, it is also part of another beloved Practice ritual! On the very last day of rehearsals, the cast would head to Labrador Park to bond over a picnic and several rounds of ultra-competitive Captain’s Ball. How intense can a game of Captain’s Ball get? Come see for yourself!

Standby. House to Dark. Go.
Executed by a well-rehearsed team of stage crew, the choreography of scene changes can create amazing transformations that happen in the blink of an eye. While you usually see them as shadowy blurs on stage, we’re turning on the houselights to reveal these hidden ninjas of the theatre. Gathering production crew members from the past 15 years, let them show you how they play – from “wagon choreography” to backstage shennanigans.
