Holding the Fort

Holding the Fort


By The Scene Kids


Saturday 26th November & Sunday 27th November

A punk musical bringing together the stories of the local punk community, this production brings together living memory, spoken word and of course, punk music to chart the history of the underground scene in Singapore. Made by punks with a distinctively DIY attitude, this marriage of punk rock and theatre invites the audience to question the relevance of the scene in the changing Singapore landscape, and wrestles for a space to exist in a society that has no room for deviance.

The Scene Kids
Formed in 2014, The Scene Kids are an ensemble who have played music and performed in punk theatre plays together. Brought together with a common love for music and a passion for the local punk scene, this ever growing group of misfits just want to make the world a better place with a message of unity and peace plus a dash of chaos.

Tan Liting
Liting works full time as a theatre practitioner with an interest in devising performance from personal stories. Liting’s past directorial credits include The Truth About Lying: Heresy and Common Sense for the Theatre (The Finger Players), Taking The Subs (The Substation Director’s Lab), (When I’m) Sixty Four (Ageless Theatre), Re: Almost Left Behind (Singapore Arts Festival 2011), Almost Left Behind (NUS Thespis). Liting likes conversation, hearing and telling a good story. Liting also likes guitars, sneakers and referring to Liting in third person.
