Hello! My name is Jennifer Lim, I’m an actress and filmmaker based in London.
At the tender age of five, my beloved grandmother introduced me to Theatre
which led to me studying Theatre Studies & Drama at A Levels,
and going on to become a thespian much to the chagrin of my parents.
I’ve done much of my thesping in the UK, Europe & the USA
In the time that I was away, the theatre scene in Singapore has blossomed like a vibrant flower,
or even a ripened fruit…….
I felt it was time for me to explore pastures back home.
You can take a girl out of Singapore but you can’t take Singapore out of the girl
Thus when I found out about
I wanted to do something for and about theatre in Singapore
to remember, celebrate, nurture, develop and in the words of a renowned theatre practitioner:
‘Through Theatre, as a society we uncover the past, and open up many new possible futures’ – Huzir Sulaiman
When I shared my vision with fellow Singaporean, Annie Kwan
She liked it so much she asked to come on board
Thus Theatre Memories: 50 Years of Singapore Theatre came into being!
Until next time time…….
More exciting news to follow on next blog post re the 50 interviewees and partners…….
