Synopsis

All aboard the Waterloo Express! The year is 2065 and time travel has just arrived in Singapore. Take a journey to visit the cultural landmarks of Singapore through some of our most classic plays. 

The Vault: The Interchange is a performance that revisits classics from the Singaporean theatre canon and explores the shared theme of losing culturally significant spaces. Just as Singapore’s landscape has been fast changing, so has its theatre reflected the transformation of these sites and how it has impacted our collective cultural memory. The performance takes us through these sites by reimagining these locations, some of them found in plays such as The Silly Little Girl and the Funny Old Tree by Kuo Pao Kun and Emily of Emerald Hill by Stella Kon.

Beyond the realm of fiction, The Interchange also explores the displacement of our theatre venues and spaces by featuring the old National Theatre, The Substation, as well 42 Waterloo Street. As the Waterloo Express veers off track in their tour of the past, The Interchange asks if it is too late to save what we have lost and are about to lose.
