1) What is your view on IMDA and its classification?

2) How did you feel about IMDA’s denial of classification for Undressing Room, on the grounds that it contained ‘excessive nudity’?

3) What was your reaction to Undressing Room being withdrawn from the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival, after it was denied a classification by IMDA?
Anger was definitely the first emotion I felt. Anger that a group of self-righteous hypocrites felt that they had the right to decide what others can and cannot watch. And anger that the IMDA capitulated to this small vocal group. Resignation followed soon after as I realised that government bodies will always listen to them and that things will never change for at least another generation or two.

4) Why did you decide to take part in the revived Undressing Room, despite the controversy surrounding it?
It’s not often that a censored performance gets a second lease of life and so, I felt that I had to take part as soon as the opportunity arose. I hoped to be able to feel more comfortable in my own skin and to explore the concept of intimacy without barriers.
