Its Joint Artistic Directors, Claire Wong and Huzir Sulaiman, are both directors, actors, and writers, and they bring this multi-disciplinary approach to Checkpoint’s work.

With rigorous technique, Checkpoint makes art with a strong sense of craft, respecting the intelligence of audiences and challenging them aesthetically. Connecting in ways both beautiful and intellectually honest. The work is varied in theme and form: socio-political satire, explorations of history and memory, verse texts, chamber opera, collaborations with regional artists, rapid-fire comedy, powerful music and arresting imagery. All united by an attention to detail and integrity of performance.

NINE YEARS THEATRE 九年剧场

NineYearsLogo1

Company Info: Nine Years Theatre is a Singapore Mandarin theatre company that is co-founded by Nelson Chia (Artistic Director) and Mia Chee (Company Director). The company believes in the accumulative process of art. This is reflected in our three-prong artistic direction: we are concerned with the development of our creation, with the issues of long-term, regular actor training, and the building of audienceship through knowledge sharing. The name “Nine Years” is symbolic of our commitment to grow these efforts year by year. Nine Years Theatre does not limit its range of productions by genre and scale. We aim to create works that are essentially actor-centred, that challenge the nature of the actor’s art in productions, and ultimately, question the notion and the state of the Mandarin theatre.
