Dance India Asia-Pacific Showcase 2...
Founded by legendary odissi dancer Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, Srjan has been dedicated to the teaching and performance of classical odissi for over 20 years. Today the group continues to innovate and experiment with ensemble choreography in the dance form. In this performance, they present some of the most iconic works from the ensemble's repertoire, including Kelucharan Mohapatra's Ardhanariswara, which deftly captures both the feminine sensuality and the masculine virility of odissi, and Ratikant Mohapatra's Jatayu Moksha, portraying an episode in the Ramayana where the vulture Jatayu intercedes with Ravana to get Sita released from his clutches.Srjan is led by Ratikant Mohapatra, who has carved for himself an enviable niche as an odissi dancer, percussionist, teacher and archivist.A programme of Dance India Asia Pacific in collaboration with Apsaras Arts.
Dance India Asia-Pacific Showcase 2...
Drawing from over five decades of research on the Natyashastra, the sage Bharatha’s classic dramaturgical text on the performing arts, and later recreated in dance by renowned dancer Padma Subrahmanyam, Nrithodaya presents an evening of works from its repertoire. The evening will include a presentation of the 108 Karanas or movement phrases describing specific leg, hip, body, and arm movements accompanied by mudras (hand gestures) derived from the movements depicted in sculpture in five South Indian temples. The programme also features some of Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam’s most iconic creations, including Gajendra Moksham, set to music of Japanese Composer Miagi Michio and Jatayu Moksham, choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, the first bharatanatyam work choreographed to western classical music.

The Memory of Water
This Olivier award winning comedy is laced with a hint of melancholy along with the hauntings of nostalgia.Their mother Vi has just died, so three sisters Teresa, Mary and Catherine along with their significant others, arrive at the family home to arrange Vi’s funeral in The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson. At family occasions like this you would expect much reminiscing and bickering … and this comedy certainly doesn’t disappoint.Teresa is the neurotic owner of a sinking business dealing in alternative therapies. She also struggles with resentment that she’s been left to care for their dying mother. Mary now a doctor, is in a long-term affair with a married man. Along with her more pragmatic outlook on life, she carries a further sad and shameful secret from her past. The youngest sister is the seemingly feckless and wayward Catherine, who lives abroad and thinks the whole world revolves around her. She craves to be noticed all the time much to the annoyance of her sisters.The three sisters now live far apart from each other reflecting lives which have taken different paths over the years. Coming together at long last for this family event would surely be a time to unite over shared stories? After all, the three of them were all brought up the same. Weren’t they? As their stories unfold, the family strains and their individual demons emerge alongside their alternative versions of the same past, converging to unveil their different perspectives. Tensions arise as they argue over conflicting revelations of the truth but at the end of the day, they are and remain, family.In playwright Shelagh Stephenson’s exploration of remembering and the dynamics of family life, we find that memory – depending on the beholder - can be fluid. As each sister is affected in the present by their own view of family history, so is the way that they are each affected by grief.Watched over by the ghost of their newly deceased Mother, whose own mind was clinically degenerating by the onset of dementia, this isn’t just a story about phantoms from the past. There is much knock-about laughter as we recognise the dark humour among family life … and death
Victoria Memorial Hall 1930
The long running Young Virtuoso Recital Series has been a notable showcase of Singapore’s brightest young pianists over the years. The upcoming installment of the series will take a step further by featuring, for the first time, a non-pianist: cellist Loke Hoe Kit. Hoe Kit has been described by the Straits Times as ‘probably the most visible local cellist to emerge’ from his generation. He studied at the Mannes College of Music, New York, and is a protégé of esteemed American cellist Nathaniel Rosen (himself a protégé of the legendary Piatigorsky). As soloist, Hoe Kit has made appearances across Asia and the USA.Pianist Khor Shang Jin and organist Joanna Paul will accompany Hoe Kit in this recital, which pays tribute to the evening’s venue, Victoria Memorial Hall (VMH). VMH is Singapore’s premiere historic concert venue; much of its fascinating history has however been forgotten today. 1930 was the year VMH started serving as a concert hall. Many of the world’s greatest musical legends, from Arthur Rubinstein to Benjamin Britten, have performed there since. In 1980, following a refurbishment, VMH’s auditorium was named Victoria Concert Hall. Hoe Kit’s recital will feature works drawn from the programmes played at VMH over the years by such cello legends as Gregor Piatigorsky, Emanuel Feuermann and Gaspar Cassadó. In addition, history will be made with the Singapore premiere of Marcel Dupré’s Sonata for Cello and Organ; this will be a rare occasion where organ accompaniment is utilised in a solo string recital in Singapore.
re:SOUND - The Red Violin with Kam ...
Singapore’s new chamber orchestra opens their second season with an exhilarating concert with prize-winning Singapore-born violinist Kam Ning. The concert features Benjamin Britten’s bubbly Simple Symphony and the String Quartet no.1 by Edvard Grieg and culminates with John Corigliano’s Red Violin Suite, based on his music for the film The Red Violin, in which the composer uses the repeated pattern of a chaconne to underpin the three centuries of the life of a magnificent but haunted violin.PROGRAMME:Edvard Grieg (arr: Richard Tognetti): String Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 27Benjamin Britten: Simple SymphonyJohn Corigliano: The Red Violin: Suite for Violin and OrchestraFor further information, please see:re:Sound website: http://www.resoundcollective.orgKam Ning’s website: http://www.ningkam.com
Verena Tay's The Car By Our Compa...
When her father dies, a young lady is left with his favourite car, a vintage Fiat Marvellete. Except for brief moments in her childhood, her memories of her father and the car are fraught with difficulty and resentment. All grown up now, she wrestles with the scars inflicted by her father's misguided expressions of love and his own insecurities, and tries to come to terms with his death. Will she find it in herself to forgive her father? Can she learn to understand his perspectives and find some good in him? And just what should she do with his old, decrepit, and unusually talkative car? Written by Verena Tay, the play explores the bonds between a father and his daughter, growing pains, and the fear of being left behind. This isn't the happiest of family stories, but it takes a long hard look at the complexities of being a parent, and the consequences of a love wielded unthinkingly.

Tchaikovsky & Arensky Piano Trios
Brownhill Consultancy presents the Incursion Trio's "Tchaikovsky & Arensky," a Tuesday evening concert at the Esplanade Recital Studio. Escape the summer heat of Singapore and take on a breathtaking journey to the summit of Russian romanticism with this passionate program. Written in 1881-1882 and 1894 respectively, the piano trios by Tchaikovsky and Arensky reflect the era's refined melancholia and tumultuous passion.Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio in A minor op. 50, subtitled “In Memory of a Great Artist”, was dedicated to the composer’s close friend, the virtuoso pianist Nikolai Rubinstein. Considered the most difficult piano piece Tchaikovsky has ever written, it became the composer’s own elegy later in 1893, being played at the memorial services in Moscow and St Petersburg. Tchaikovsky’s friendship and music had a significant influence on Arensky’s composition. The former’s epic piano trio had impressed the latter to a great extent and in 1894 Arensky also wrote a trio in memory of a remarkable musician. Arensky dedicated his Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor Op. 32 to Karl Davydov, a friend that Tchaikovsky nicknamed the “Tsar of cellists”. Celebrating Davydov and his achievements, this suite shines a spotlight on the cello. Formed in 2008, Incursion Trio has performed extensively in Singapore and overseas, interpreting a wide range of repertoire including German classic, Russian romantic, French modernist and Singaporean contemporary music. The exquisite rendition of this epic Russian program by the world-class Singaporean musicians Beatrice Lin(piano), Yi Li Siew(violin), and Juan Lin(cello) is sure to be a rare treat to the ears of the music loving public at the Esplanade.For further details visit brownhillconsultancy.com and incursiontrio.com

Raga Parasu: A Dramatised Reading...
Parasurama, the valiant Warrior Sage, is the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu. He lived through the ages of 3 other avatars, Rama, Balarama and Krishna and was also destined to be the teacher of Kalki, the avatar after him. He was the teacher of Bhishma, Drona and Karna, the greatest champions in the Mahabharatha and was a man of principles who stood by his beliefs despite facing some of the toughest decisions any mortal could make. Told from Parasurama’s point of view, this dramatised reading traces the challenges he encountered and explores the concept of righteousness in the face of adversity, the bounds of duty, as well as the manifestation of the divine.Click here for the Tamil version of the synopsis.
Pesta Raya - Malay Festivals of Art...
The lives of six pained characters are interwoven together, each checkered by cycles of abuse—physical, emotional and psychological—and rocked by violence, self-inflicted and otherwise. This includes sobering episodes of incest, domestic abuse, lifelong drug abuse and sexual violence. Underlying this is a deep, simple yearning for happiness and love that they share. Main2 was commissioned by Esplanade for the very first Pesta Raya – Malay Festival of Arts in 2002, and was the first Malay language play to be staged at the arts centre. Written by Aidli ‘Alin’ Mosbit, it is a warts-and-all portrayal of the Malay community and its social strata, framed by the concept of main, literally meaning “the games we play”. This new staging is directed by Aidli ‘Alin’ Mosbit, and features a new cast made up of Al-Matin Yatim, Farez Najid, Farhana M Noor, Hatta Said, Munah Bagharib and Suhaili Safari. Bear witness as each character find themselves in “transit” after lifelong games of chasing happiness.

Performed by Gamelan Garasi Seni Benawa (Indonesia) & Metropolitan Festival Orchestra (Singapore)What would you sacrifice to save your lover?A young man is kept distant from his lover by a strict and unforgiving society. He'd go through hell to be with her, but when a deal with the devil goes sour, hell comes to him instead.This collaboration across cultures brings together a 20-piece Indonesian ensemble and members of a western orchestra to conjure the bewitiching live score for the new film, Setan Jawa.
