1) What is your view on IMDA and its classification?
IMDA is a responsible agency with a worthy public duty of preventing excesses. I attended the performance because it was a unique presentation that I had not experienced before.

2) How did you feel about IMDA’s denial of classification for Undressing Room, on the grounds that it contained ‘excessive nudity’?
IMDA was considered in its decision. I do not disagree with IMDA’s assessment.  But since it was a new experience, I was curious.

3) What was your reaction to Undressing Room being withdrawn from the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival, after it was denied a classification by IMDA?
I understand why this may be misunderstood and why this may “go wrong” in execution.

4) Why did you decide to take part in the revived Undressing Room, despite the controversy surrounding it?
Well, it was unusual. So if there is an opening to understand what this is about, why forego such an unusual and rare opportunity. I wanted to understand and experience this form of “interactive” art.

5) What were your thoughts or concerns regarding your participation in Undressing Room, a work that had not been approved by IMDA?
The performance was a new experience, that’s all. I was not aware that the performance may violate laws. 

6) How did IMDA’s decision affect your participation or experience of Undressing Room?
I was curious to discover this new experience, that’s all.
