Pinball Collective is a new theatre collective which aims to create work that involves people with non conventionally theatrical backgrounds. It works to create experiential theatre with a slightly offbeat flair that is challenging, fascinating and fun.
Last year, Pinball Collective produced its first theatrical production, Bedok Reservoir, with the help of more than 300 wonderful crowd-funding supporters. Thank you again to all those who helped make it possible. For more information on Bedok Reservoir, please see the show announcement here. For information on the book of the script and a prose version of the story Written by our own Wesley Leon Aroozoo, see more information here or simply pick up a copy from Math Paper Press.
