How Singapore’s Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is Preparing for the Future

Thursday, August 2, 2018   (0 Comments)

Yvonne Tham will take over as CEO of Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay when Benson Puah, who has steered the venue from its very beginnings, departs on 1 August. As assistant CEO at Esplanade since 2014, Tham is well placed to take over at the helm. One major development will be the construction of a compact waterfront theatre for presenting new works, set to open in 2021. Tham writes for International Arts Manager on how Singapore’s shiniest venue is preparing for the future.

Collaboration platforms are another essential tool for Esplanade to contribute to the growth of the Singapore arts industry. Collaborations strengthen programme diversity at Esplanade and allow us to work closely with local artists and arts groups to help develop their capabilities by encouraging them to take on larger scale works, which they would not normally be able to undertake without the support of another industry player, thus bringing a greater vibrancy to the industry.
