Huayi 华艺节 2017 Actor, Forty The...
In real life, there are no rehearsals and no second takes. Actor, Forty features Golden Horse Award-winner Yeo Yann Yann returning to the Chinese theatre stage in a special Huayi commission. This new original monologue sees Yeo collaborating with Cultural Medallion recipients, director Alvin Tan and playwright Haresh Sharma of The Necessary Stage. Candid and conversational, it examines the myriad identities that we take on and cast off in life—just as an actor does when she adopts different roles. Blurring the lines between actor and character, Yeo plays an actress who has just been cast in a contemporary remake of Summer Snow《女人四十》, a 1995 Hong Kong film about a 40-something woman dealing with difficult family issues. The actress has a secret that she is struggling to keep under wraps—she is turning 40 and expecting her first child. Faced with the challenge of juggling a globetrotting job and raising a child, she confronts her hopes and fears. Will she still be able to find meaning in her career, and also play to perfection what could be her most challenging role yet—becoming a mother? Directed by Alvin TanWritten by Haresh SharmaPerformed by Yeo Yann Yann Costume Design: Max Tan and Yuan Zhiying (MAX.TAN)Lighting Design: Adrian TanSet Design: Kok Heng LeunSound Design: Julian WongTranslation: Quah Sy RenDramaturgy: Melissa Lim There will be a post-performance talk for the evening performances on 3, 5 and 6 Feb.

Huayi 华艺节 2017 A Midsummer Night'...
Four young lovers, without a care for the consequences, flee to a magical forest in search of true love. But the course of true love, as we all know, never did run smooth. Hong Kong’s acclaimed Dionysus Contemporary Theatre returns to Huayi, with a sexy, madcap Cantonese adaptation of Shakespeare’s well-loved romantic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Golden Horse Award-winner Anthony Wong and acclaimed Hong Kong actress Candice Yu sizzle onstage as the Fairy King and Queen, Oberon and Titania, alongside talented actors Alex Lam, Rosa Maria Velasco, Kate Yeung and Angus Chan, as the intrepid young lovers. In the forest, the Fairy King and Queen, possessed by jealousy, engage in a fight that makes the seasons change, the tides churn and the spirits flee. At the same time, a bumbling group of amateur actors attempt to stage a play—a rib-tickling “tragedy” of epic proportions. The magical forest drives all its inhabitants crazy, with love in all shapes and sizes, from the throes of passionate infatuation to vows of enduring commitment, from unrequited love to a tangled web of interchangeable affections. A striking visual feast with gorgeous costumes, Dionysus Contemporary Theatre brings you a fresh and fun take on the Shakespearean classic. Join us in the wilderness of love for an enjoyable, imaginative romp through a midsummer night. See you in the forest!Advisory: This performance contains mature content and madcap comedy. Recommended for audiences aged 16 years and above. No admission for ages 12 and below.Visit us at www.esplanade.com/huayi
Huayi 华艺节 2017 Offending the Audi...
“You will see no play” Four nameless performers, in a space without boundaries. No plot, no love nor sorrow, no more roller coaster narrative. And the stage does not represent another place. What then shall happen in theatre? When all pretence is stripped, is everything then genuine? In 1966, Austrian playwright Peter Handke rose to prominence with Offending the Audience, a play that challenged perceptions of theatre and rocked the establishment of the day. Five decades later, this special Huayi commission sees Young Artist Award recipient Liu Xiaoyi leading a creative team of the most outstanding Singaporean theatre artists—Nelson Chia, Oliver Chong, Li Xie, Ang Gey Pin, Darren Ng and Lim Woan Wen—to devise and create an original adaptation through relentless experimentation and dialogue. Pushing new boundaries in theatre, they rework the antitheatre classic for a modern audience. There will be a post-performance talk after each performance. Visit us at www.esplanade.com/huayi
Huayi 华艺节 2017 Secret Love in Pea...
A beloved modern classic that holds a special place in hearts around the world.Making its Singapore debut at Esplanade 10 years ago, Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land by celebrated Taiwanese playwright and theatre director Stan Lai and Performance Workshop returns to Huayi. Two theatre groups are mistakenly booked into the same space for rehearsals. One rehearses the poignant play Secret Love which tells of a couple separated by the revolution, while the other runs through the farcical period comedy Peach Blossom Land. As the two groups struggle for control of the stage, resulting in chaos and numerous comic squabbles, their contrasting worlds begin to come together, creating surprising new layers of meaning that are arrestingly moving and universally felt. Regarded as a masterwork of contemporary Chinese theatre, Performance Workshop’s special 30th-anniversary production of Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land is directed by award-winning theatre director and filmmaker Ismene Ting and features a stellar cast that includes Golden Bell Award winners and popular Taiwanese television and stage personalities.

Calendar Girls is a delightful comedic drama about the triumph of all that is good in human nature overcoming some of the worst things that fate can throw at it. It speaks of the power of community and friendship. Directly and indirectly Calendar Girls increases awareness of leukemia as well as garners donations for research and help for underprivileged sufferers of it.Calendar Girls tells the story of a women’s group (The Women’s Institute) who meet to do good within the community. When one member’s husband (John) contracts leukemia and dies, she (Annie) and her best friend (Chris) resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute members, Cora, Celia, Ruth and Jessie to pose nude with them for an ‘alternative’ calendar. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on their small community hall, in a village in the heart of Yorkshire. The calendar showing ordinary women looking beautiful as they pose in nude yet in the most discreet fashion, is a great success and they manage to raise more money than any of them could have dreamt of. Not only can they supply a more comfortable settee, the amount of money is more than enough to build a new hospital wing to help treat other patients with cancer and leukemia. These wonderful women may have taken a big step in their help to combat a terrible disease, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found celebrity. The question of selling-out for media attention versus sticking to principles is raised. This conflict in the story is particularly relevant to all those who today pursue fame. This thread illustrates what truly is important in life. This is no fantasy though. This chain of events occurred in real life. The play is based on what happened when eleven WI members posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund. It’s not a tale – it’s an inspiration! The play Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2008 and hit London’s theatre-land in the West End in 2009. It has toured Britain, been performed in North America and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history. It is hoped that all those who watch this play leave with a feeling that they too can take responsibility and overcome their problems whatever, and make things work for them. Not just for the Calendar Girls …. anything is possible, for all for us! As in the best traditions of vaudevillian fan dances, the art of the play’s nudity lies in what is withheld. The choreography of this sequence is best described as ‘’fabulous concealment’’. Should we see anything we oughtn’t, the whole scene will deflate like a soufflé on which the oven door has been opened too quickly.

Top Restaurant Beijing People's Ar...
“An exploration of national Chinese culture that is thought-provoking, reflective and enlightening.” – Gu Xiang, renowned Chinese author Inheritance meets ingenuity in a compelling tale revolving around one of Beijing’s most iconic dishes. After successful presentations of Teahouse (2015), and Savage Land (2016), Beijing People’s Art Theatre returns to Esplanade to present Top Restaurant, a well-loved play with universal appeal that chronicles the ups and downs of a Peking duck restaurant over half a century, epitomising the colourful cuisine and history of China. Through years of sweat, hard work and sharp business acumen, the manager of Fu Ju De finally manages to achieve some success. But his biggest test is still yet to come as two squabbling sons of the founding restaurateur come knocking, hungry for a share of the riches. Since its premiere in 1988, the production has received international acclaim and several national awards, been staged more than 500 times and even made into a television drama in China.SynopsisFu Ju De is a well-known Peking duck restaurant established in the Tongzhi period of the Qing dynasty. Its aging boss retires, leaving the restaurant to his two sons and his assistant Wang Zixi. However, the sons—one an opera lover, the other a martial arts fan—have no interest in the restaurant, leaving Wang to recruit Lu Mengshi, a smart young man, to help keep the business running. Having been entrusted with this responsibility, Lu vows to turn the restaurant around into a successful business. With much hard work together with his smart lead waiter Chang Gui, skilful head chef Luo Datou and his lover Yu Chu, Fu Ju De grows into a two-story establishment that is famous throughout Beijing. However, seeing the restaurant’s success, the two sons decide to wrestle for management of Fu Ju De, spreading unfounded rumours that get Chang and Luo in trouble. Lu, in a bid to protect his friends, volunteers to shoulder all the responsibilities. But faced with a rapidly worsening situation, Lu starts to consider a heartbreaking solution—should he leave for his hometown in Shandong?
