“Theatre Trafik” form Rijeka and “The Necessary Stage” from Singapore will premiere their joint project – the performance ‘Crossings’ at 16 August in Theatre Esplanade – The Studio Season in Singapore, with additional perfromances on 17, 18 and 19 August. The Croatian premiere is planned for 19 August at the National Theatre Ivan Zajca in Rijeka. Their work is related to questions of identity of the individual lost on the margins of time and space.

Based on Asian myths, Crossings take us on a journey of the transformation of the self – how one deals with the seduction of being imprisoned and how freedom opens us to meaningless pain. Crossings is a multidisciplinary collaboration between artists from Singapore and Croatia investigating the coexistence, understanding and mixing of different cultures.

The Necessary Stage
Formed in 1987 by our current Artistic Director Alvin Tan, The Necessary Stage (TNS) is a non-profit theatre company with charity status. Our mission is to create challenging, indigenous and innovative theatre that touches the heart and mind. TNS is a recipient of the National Arts Council’s 2 Year Major Grant, and is also the organiser and curator of the annual M1 Singapore Fringe Festival.

TRAFIK (Transitive-Fiction Theatre)
The work of this collective of authors and performers is, by many accounts, very unique within the context of Croatian independent theatre and dates its beginnings back to 1998 and their site-specific performance, The Walker. This work determined their thematic objectives as well as artistically expression on questions of identity of the individual lost on the margins of time and space.
