Reprising a crowd favourite from 2015's SWF feature, What I Love About You is Your Attitude Problem by Checkpoint Theatre, this year's festival sets out to connect people once again through their common literary pet peeves and shared judgement. Join twin terrors Lucas and Joses Ho as they host another edition of Speed Hating.
Lucas Ho is a playwright, director, performer and educator. He is an Associate Artist with Checkpoint Theatre. As a playwright, Lucas' works include FRAGO (2017), staged by Checkpoint Theatre and The Heart Comes To Mind (2020), a co-production by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and Checkpoint Theatre. He has edited numerous play anthologies, and has taught at the secondary, pre-tertiary and tertiary levels.
Joses Ho is a poet and scientist. As tech sorcerer for SingPoWriMo (the largest online month-long poetry-writing activity in Asia), he archives and visualises the poetry posted. As a performer, he has been featured in Sing Lit Body Slam (the world's first spoken-word / pro-wrestling show), Spoke & Bird, and the Singapore Writers Festival (2015, 2016, 2019). He made his pro-wrestling debut in 2021 with Grapple Max. In his current day job, he tracks global emergent COVID-19 variants.
