Uncovering the humanity behind the technology
Whether you like it or not, online social networking sites are here to stay and are out to transform the way we stay connected to one another. Three writers take on the easily left unseen impact that these sites are having on our everyday lives.
The objective of klpac's T4YP Lab is to train young directors, designers and writers in theatre-craft via the production of a programme of short plays.
The very first T4YP Lab project features:
Top Friends by Mark Beau de Silva
Friends made, lost, made again. Topped. Under-ed, and Deleted. Sometimes you send them drinks. First performed as part of TEN: Theatrical Lightning Strikes Human Relationships by The T4YP Ensemble in 2008.
Profile by Mark Beau de Silva
“I think I will not ask him again why he has stopped calling. I am so stupid. His profile picture is so happy. Of course. So I will look happy too. Can you take a new picture for me. It’s for my profile.”
Could’ve Been by Alex Chua
A short story about obsession, idolism and the self-destructive need to be someone else. A man loses sight of himself and the love of his wife to his wanton desire to become Mark Zuckerberg.
Funeral Rights by Alex Chua
There is reason to be afraid of stalkers. Steven’s cyber stalker has come to his funeral, coming face-to-face with his real family and friends.
Addiction by Nandang Abdul Rahman
The demons that haunt us may not only be the ones that lurk at the bottom of bottles or the tip of a syringe. It may come in more innocent forms than you realize.
Remains by Nandang Abdul Rahman
Growing old, marking milestones and dealing with survivor’s guilt the Mukabuku way.
