Many of us would head to the movies to catch the latest movies like Black Widow. Sure, it can be pretty fun especially when we are watching the movie we have been waiting for. However, other than movies, there are also other things to watch such as theatre performances.
This month, be entertained by some theatre performances coming your way. Dive into topics such as family, love and self-love. Let’s dive into what these theatre performances are and what you can expect.
Directed by Adeeb Fazah, The Concubine tells a story of a young Singaporean man, played by Isaiah Christopher Lee, and his journey finding a new path home. The performance way co-written by Izzul Irfan.
After a terrible incident with his lover, the young man found himself standing at the beginning of the rest of his life. As he faces an uncertain future after the end of an unusual relationship, he has to return to his past and revisit the people he has loved and lost.
The Concubine threads a thin line between protection and violence, beauty and pain and love and loss, in the attempt to navigate the possibilities of trauma and abuse.

Cyril & Michael
This is a story of love. Organised by Bridging The Gap, Cyril and Michael explores the histories which intersect upon a chance encounter between two strangers. Over the course of one night, stories of their past are swapped, vulnerabilities laid bare, and secrets unveiled.
As they discuss about race, sexuality, love and heartbreak, they grow to understand each other a little more, opening up to the potential of a profound relationship between them. In this exploration, they admit their faults and even wear them proudly. This is the messy, complicated and sometimes ugly, yet a beautiful dance of connection.
