In line with this year's theme, and to celebrate the Fringe's 10th anniversary, we have revived Peer Pleasure. Always a favourite from our past youth festivals, Peer Pleasure is a celebration of youth theatre. The Fringe is proud to present an exciting and eclectic mix of performances from six schools.

Our pragmatic lifestyle makes top-down regulation an attractive way of life, making the culture of hierarchy the companion to efficiency. The Singaporean youth today are quick to question the norm. The themes of these plays touch on the herd mentality, the obsession for control, the relevance of history, being enslaved by poverty, harassed by societal expectations and living with a family that cannot be trusted.

Whether literal or metaphorical, Singaporean youth are struggling with identity. As we are small, we are immediately connected to the global and are used to looking outwards from a very young age. With social media, our choices of being influenced and informed have become more diverse, disturbing national boundaries and re-defining what is local.

As today's youth are confronted by a plethora of local questions and urgent global issues, what better way to engage one another than through art? The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2014 is proud to present our youth and their 'people' concerns.
