3 CUPS OF KOPI
PLAYBACK THEATRE ENSEMBLE
IN THE BEGINNING
3 Cups of Kopi Playback Theatre Ensemble (3 Cups) was formed by a bunch of enthusiasts.
We were graduates of Tapestry Playback Theatre's Playback Core Training in late 2016.
Amongst us were office workers, educators, undergraduates, arts freelancers, parents and business owners.
We meet fairly regularly in Singapore, to hold space for anyone who has a story to share.
We are a community arts group that hopes the playing back of emotions can allow for bonding, healing, reflection and inspiration.
ALONG THE WAY
Between 2017-2018, we hit milestones such as our first performance, first retreat and first playback jam.
In 2020, some of us co-organised the 1st Singapore Playback Theatre Gathering with
mentors and friends from Tapestry Playback Theatre, Long Time No See Playback Theatre and Her Playback.
We were the first playback group in Singapore that continued to meet online
and perform virtually throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
It gave us the opportunity to experiment with and improve on our online presentations techniques,
reach out to new local and international audience groups,
as well as engage with potential new members.
We then continued to experiment with a hybrid style of performance,
and are keen to continue exploring the format, whilst also rediscovering the joy of doing theatre in the same physical space.
THE JOURNEY CONTINUES
In early 2022, we are excited to offer KOPI STORIES. a crash course of playback essentials to grow interest in Singapore.
We hope this will be the start of more events and activities we can organise for practitioners
and non-practitioners from various walks of life, as we all learn to live with Covid-19.
In end 2023, KOPI KAKIS, comprising friends from Long Time No See, iMi and 3 Cups, presented
"History As We Know It" in Singapore and in South Africa.
Now that it's 2024, we look forward to continuing our partnership with St Luke's Eldercare, as well as staging public performances.
