Casting Back : a preview

October 7, 2012

Event: Casting Back (as part of Esplanade’s “Dedicated to You” festival)
Venue: Esplanade Theatre Studio
Run: 13 Oct 2012, 3pm and 8 pm

Written by: Robin Loon
Directed by: Casey Lim
Cast: Nora Samosir and Christina Sergeant

As part of Esplanade’s 10th Anniversary Weekend festival, we are presented with Casting Back, a journey into theatre history through the memories of ‘veterans’, Nora Samosir and Christina Sergeant.

Surprisingly, though in the scene for close to 30 years, this is the first time both are performing together. Be treated to an intimate sharing of behind-the-scenes anecdotes that will be funny, emotional and nostalgic; of the people they’ve worked with, the shows they’ve done, and memories of when and where their theatre life in Singapore has brought them. Look forward also, to a story interweaved between the memories.

A quick chat with director Casey Lim revealed that as part of the tribute to theatre-making, a combination of media, sound, lights and actors will be placed on a blank stage, putting all factors that make theatre into the limelight, allowing the audience to experience all faculties of theatre that goes into putting up a production.

So take a trip through Singapore theatre history at Casting Back. There are only 2 showings, which are on 13 October. Tickets are at $10 and can be purchased via SISTIC.
