Centre 42 presents a collection of new performances devised by its resident artists and invited guests. Titled “there is no future in nostalgia,” after Arthur Yap's iconic poem about the fatigue of urban renewal, we invite artists to consider the tensions between new and old, the technocratic and the civic—and consider how they come to bear on the art of theatre-making.

SIFA X: THERE IS NO FUTURE IN NOSTALGIA comprises: The Vault, with pieces drawn from practitioners' memories of theatre in the 90s; Studio, a series of staged readings of new short works by our resident playwrights; and Headline Acts, an open-format evening where writers present short dramatic pieces in response to archival headlines.
