Over the past year Performing Lines has delivered an extended program of mentorship, training and professional development to two independent producers from Singapore, Hsia Ling Woo and Jeffrey Tan.
Delivered in partnership with the National Arts Council (Singapore) the Singapore Producers’ Platform is a pilot program designed to build expertise, networks, and industry-based knowledge to build capacity in the independent producing sector in Singapore.
Ling and Jeffrey took part in intensives alongside key Australian arts events OzAsia, Sydney, Perth and Dance Massive festivals, where they met artists and industry leaders and experienced a wide range of Australian work, whilst completing a structured series of modules using Performing Lines projects and their own independent works in development as case studies.
They are currently preparing for their final intensive in Singapore with our Producer Jen Leys where they will share their findings and engage in discussions with the local sector. Ahead of this, we caught up Ling and Jeff to get their top tips on producing work internationally.
