Inclusive Theatre Making（Workshop）
Inclusive Theatre Making is a four-hour workshop in performing arts where participants collaborate to create a single stage work, regardless of whether they have a disability or experience in performing arts. We welcome Peter Sau from Singapore's leading arts charity "ART: DIS" which promotes inclusive art activities. We aim to create works together, transcending the differences in each body and language of the participants. You can also participate in the workshop either as a participant or an observer.
