POWERFULLY RESONANT THEATRE
For more than 15 years, Checkpoint Theatre has created productions of astonishing nuance and subtle power, marrying extraordinary original writing with directing of great sophistication.
Joint Artistic Directors Claire Wong and Huzir Sulaiman lead the nine multi-disciplinary artists of the company in a rigorous investigation of the human condition in its many aspects: the challenges of history, the charged bonds of family, the dance of citizen and State. Checkpoint Theatre’s international collaborations and tours have taken them to New York, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Tokyo.
These are richly textured narratives of contemporary Asia brought to life with complex performances and elegant, striking aesthetics, to create theatre that is urgent and important for our times.
...tremendous sensitivity and characteristic finesse, giving us language that is lyrical and evocative…Utterly breathtaking.
Singapore's multi-disciplinary Checkpoint Theatre, already a repository of much of the territory's best stage talent.

…a theatre company at the height of its powers, leaving smoke trailing gloriously in its wake.
