True Colours Festival - the Asia Pacific Celebration of Artistes with Disabilities

My Home is not a Shell: A Work in Progress


In the spirit of cross-cultural collaboration through the arts to do good, the SIF is proud to bring together two disability theatre groups to work with and learn from each other: Very Special Theatrics (VST) from Singapore, and No Strings Attached (NSA) Theatre of Disability from Australia.

Co-organised by Very Special Arts and the SIF, My Home is not my Shell showcases NSA and VST’s work-in-progress from collaborative training workshops held earlier this year. The showcase features actors from the Very Special Theatrics (VST) performing company, directed by Alirio Zavarce, Artistic Director of No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability in collaboration with R Chandran, Founder-Director of VST.

A crab has lost his shell. He has lost his home. How does he rebuild his home? In parallel, as Singapore constantly builds and rebuilds itself, how does one define ‘home’?


As part of our efforts in harnessing the power of the arts to shape an inclusive society, SIF is supporting this under its Arts for Good initiative.
