Tapestry Performance at MyQueenstown Arts Festival

Click here to buy tickets! 

This is where I live. This is my story.

The story of Queenstown began in the squalid slums of the city, where three quarters of the population of over 1.5 million were crammed into 1% of Singapore by the 1950s. The first satellite town was developed to alleviate the situation.

Why does Queenstown have such a strong sense of identity and community?

More than its history, more than its iconic buildings, the story of Queenstown is about its people, just like the story of Singapore begins with its citizens.

What unheard stories are out there? What are your stories of growing up in Singapore? What are your stories of living in Singapore today? What are your stories of community?

Come join us as Tapestry Playback Theatre presents a playback theatre show, based on your personal stories.

Photos from our last performance!

Tapestry Playback Theatre performed at Singapore International Foundation's A Theatrical Perspective:Making a Difference through International Volunteerism on 26th June 2013.

It was a wonderful night of humour and heart, manifested in stories of sacrifice, courage and personal growth.

Thank you SIF for giving us the chance to play back the stories of international volunteerism. =)
