She also scored a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Life! Theatre Awards Singapore for her multi-character turn in “Three Fat Virgins Unassembled” (T:>Works, N.O.W. 2019) directed by Grace Kalai. Other selected performance credits include “Discord of Discourse” (UK), “Miss British” (Esplanade Studios), “Eloquence” (T:>Works, directed by Chilean director, Manuela Infante), “Merdeka” (Wild Rice), “Who’s There” (The Transit Ensemble), “The Coronalogues” (SRT), “Two Songs and a Story” (Checkpoint Theatre), “NDP 2020”, and “subtitled 1.0” (BTG).
As a singer, Sangeetha debuted her solo jazz concert “Sangeetha Sings Sinatra: Live at the Esplanade” in early 2019, and recently sang in “Edith Piaf - No Regrets” (Singtheatre). Her next concert, “Sangeetha and Simone”, is slated for 2022.
