In the Living Room: William Teo’s Asia-in-Theatre Research Circus was presented on 29 July 2017 in front of a live audience.
Robin Loon, Elizabeth de Roza, Jeremiah Choy, Lok Meng Chue, and Neo Kim Seng came together to discuss the extraordinary achievements of bygone theatre company Asia-in-Theatre Research Circus (ATRC) and its late founder William Teo. This Living Room commemorated the 30th anniversary of the founding of ATRC.
Since 1987, ATRC, with Teo as its artistic director, created and produced some of Singapore’s most unique and visually-arresting English-language productions. ATRC was in search of a new theatrical expression, experimenting with merging various Asian performing arts traditions with English-language contemporary theatre. With Teo’s sudden passing in 2001, ATRC ceased operations soon after. Clips of ATRC’s production footage have been used with the permission of the estate of William Teo.
