《聆听新加坡》 Listening to Singapore
Synopsis

To commemorate our nation’s bicentennial anniversary, the Contemporary Arts Research Association has launched a series of public lecture entitled 'Listening to Singapore'. It aims to introduce significant literary works, in different languages, about Singapore. Audio and visual effects will be applied to enhance the impact of the recitation. It is hoped that by refreshing the public memory in this series of public lectures, more people will be aware of, and interested in, our culture and history. This will help Singaporeans to move forward together for a better future.

【聆听新加坡】是一项结合文学欣赏、历史回顾、语言艺术、视觉艺术以及多种语文表达和表演相结合的公开语文课活动。为了纪念新加坡开埠两百年,选文皆以本地区的历史轨迹和风土民情为主。特邀很有特色的朗读者,以独特的气质与感情饱满的声音,撼动聆听者的心灵。主持人将穿针引线,邀请嘉宾在聆听朗读后真诚对话,拉近朗读者与聆听者之间的距离。为了促进跨文化交流,三段朗诵的其中两段以华语进行,另一段则是马来语。字正腔圆的标准语音并非必须的要求,自然淳朴的表达方式才是我们最高的追求。

《情锁南洋》 Memoirs of Nanyang
Memoirs of Nanyang – a Nanyin MusicalA Siong Leng Musical Association’s production commissioned by Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.One photograph, two ethnic groups, three different cultures – this is the unique label of the Peranakan Chinese.In the course of preserving their culture, the Peranakan Chinese, with a typical pioneering spirit, headed West in search of greater knowledge and more advanced technology Upon their return, they put their knowledge to good use and have played key roles in the enrichment of the Peranakan culture.The performance highlights the bold fusion of Nanyin and Peranakan culture, as well as Siong Leng Musical Association’s courageous spirit to innovate and explore new horizons for their art form. We are privileged to feature the works and successors of three cultural medallion recipients, Mr Yip Cheong Fun, Mr Teng Mah Seng and Mdm Som Bte Mohd Said.Audiences will be treated to a unique harmonisation of Nanyin, Malay cultural music and Mandarin pop, which lets them experience the deep elegance of Nanyin and the boundless artistic ambit of music.Following the thoughts and emotions of the two generations, an immigrant came to Nanyang for a better life and married a local Malay woman. Since then, his business flourished and he had a comfortable and happy family. In spite of his success, his heart still thinks about his family in his hometown day and night, wanting to reunite with them. Realizing it may be impossible, he is deeply saddened and unable to accept the reality.To make him happy, his grandchildren discussed how to combine two polar genres: Nanyin and today’s music. This interesting and bold attempt at fusing Nanyin with different music genres such as Malay music and Pop, helped them to create a new style of song that showcases multiculturalism and their strong spirit. This spectacle portrays the happiness of a family after reunion, leading a blessed and fulfilled life together.
