What is it like for someone to grow up ‘transgender’, or ‘trans’, in Singapore? What challenges do trans people here face in simply trying to be who they are? How have they not only survived, but thrived, finding joy and creating community in a society that isn’t always forgiving of any deviation from heteronormative standards?

In conjunction with Pride Month, Wild Rice proudly presents trans:mission, the first work in Singapore that is fully devised, written and performed by trans people. Through a series of structured conversations around keywords such as ‘transphobia’, ‘dysphoria’ and ‘utopia’, this inspiring new work celebrates the stories of trans folk – told in their own words, and with their own voices.

Directed by trans theatre-maker Medli Dorothea Loo, with dramaturgy by acclaimed playwright Alfian Sa’at, this brave and candid piece of documentary theatre seeks to expand public discourse on gender and sexuality by creating a space of reflection and illumination. In shining a spotlight on the lived experiences of trans folk of all ages and backgrounds, trans:mission invites you to be a part of how trans stories are preserved and shared – not just between generations of trans people, but also with a wider audience.

Date: 12 – 16 Jun 2024

Venue: The Studio @ Wild Rice, Funan

Please note that trans:mission is rated R18.
