Read more about the process of staging Mixed here
Mixed was performed at three different locations, each offering audiences a new experience of the play.
The process of staging Mixed began at the end of October 2016. Raemae (Kok) was one of the winners of the Theatreworks 24 Hour Playwriting competition and her play was chosen for the Performance Tour! part of the Writing and Community program by Theatreworks. Following a series of dramaturgical discussions between director and playwright, the process culminated in a performance touring the South East District from 23 Feb to 11 March 2017.
Here’s the set in 72-13 before we bumped in.

TheatreWorks presents its annual Performance Tour! Mixed toured the South East District from 23 Feb to 11 March 2017.
Synopsis: Growing up Chindian in Singapore has not been easy for Anika Lee. Her parents, Cassandra and Lee, have fought hard their whole life to protect their kids from racial tensions both in their family and out. At 21, Anika has cultivated a fire in her that allows her to navigate the difficulties of being mixed. Now a teacher-in-training, she is whole, and ready to fight for what she believes in. She even has her eye on a guy at the job she loves…
Mixed scrutinizes a racial divide that is supposedly cracked, bringing to light fragments that still have the power to cut. Mixed is a play about loss, it’s also about love – it’s about falling. And it’s about getting back up.
Mixed is performed at three different locations, each offering audiences a new experience of the play.
