Perspectives is dedicated to the global disabled community who have faced these challenging times with resilience, courage and grace.
With theatres shuttered in Singapore, Lee Lee turns to the digital film format to bring the voices of the disabled community to the forefront. Together with a team of creatives, she produces Perspectives, three monologues by artists with disabilities. The film aims to encourage audiences to see beyond disabilities and address assumptions. Lee Lee’s monologue is featured in Thrive Aid 2020, a global online livestream of works created by disabled artists and viewed by thousands of people around the world. Perspectives is created and will launch 25 March 2021 at Gateway Theatre. Read Lee Lee’s blog post What Happens When You Dream.
