The 9 Fridas by Kaite O’Reilly

15 & 16 Oct 2022 | KC Arts Centre - Home Of SRT


The 9 Fridas by Kaite O’Reilly
Presented by SRT’s Inclusive Young Company 2022

The Inclusive Young Company presents The 9 Fridas, a performance text by award-winning playwright and disability arts icon Kaite O’Reilly.  The 9 Fridas is a mosaic, with many representations of Frida Kahlo - disabled, Mexican and currently the most famous female artist in the world. Monologues delivered by specifically non-Frida figures/characters tell contemporary stories that parallel aspects of her biography as F journeys through memory and the Mayan afterlife.

Directed by Grace Lee-Khoo (Access Path Productions)

ALL PERFORMANCES ARE ACCESSIBLE

Audio Described Icon

Audio Described (AD) : 

An Audio Described performance is for patrons who are Blind or Vision Impaired, who require the theatre performance to be described live by a trained Audio Describer. The performance is verbally described and transmitted to the audience members through their own mobile phone device with earphones. 

Open Captioning Icon

Open Captioning (OC) : 

Captioned performances are designed to cater to d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing patrons. In a captioned performance, the actors' speech and technical cues, such as sound effects and music, will be described with text displayed on a screen(s) located near the stage. The trained captioner will operate each show live to ensure they adapt to the unique elements of each performance. Seating is specially allocated to provide an optimal view of the performance and the caption screen(s).

Sign Language Icon

Singapore Sign Language Interpreted Performance (SgSL):

Sign Language Interpreted performances are designed to cater to patrons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. In a signed performance, there will be a trained interpreter who will be placed in a visible position on or near the stage. The interpreter will sign all auditory elements of the show using Singapore Sign Language. Advised by The Singapore Association of the Deaf, seating is allocated for each SgSL performance to provide an optimal view to both the show and the interpreter.

Relaxed Performance Icon

Relaxed Performance (RP): 

A RP is designed to allow patrons a more ‘relaxed’ theatre environment. Patrons who may benefit from this performance include those on the Autistic spectrum, living with Dementia and patrons with diverse learning and communication needs.

WHO ARE WE

The Inclusive Young Company

A partnership with Access Path Productions, SRT’s Inclusive Young Company (iYC) is a holistic acting programme for young persons and adults between the ages of 16 – 35, who identify as persons with disabilities. Sharing its goals with SRT’s acclaimed The Young Company (TYC) acting programme, it aims to equip and nurture participants with the confidence, transferable employment skills, and communication techniques that they will need to shine onstage, as well as in their career of choice. It features professional masterclasses and mentorship – led by international artist Grace Lee-Khoo – which will provide a platform for our participants’ creative development as independent performers and theatre-makers.

Both SRT and Access Path Productions as organisations believe in addressing the imbalance of accessibility to the arts, and we believe in

working with our communities to support disabled-led and focused work. Our key outcomes for this exciting new programme include offering equality of learning and professional development for young persons, engaging the general public with performances that reflect the experiences of marginalised communities in Singapore, and deepening the wider conversation around access in the arts, and beyond.
