10 Women Shaking Up The Arts Scene In Singapore

Strong women took the lead at the M1-The Straits Times Life Theatre Awards, where performers, writers and directors both conformed to and subverted expectations of traditional female roles in plays.

B*tch: The Origin Of The Female Species, a two-hander about a man and his dog, won Production of the Year but the crowd favourite was family drama Falling, staged by Pangdemonium.
