Peter & Blue's Forest Adventure Pre...
''Experiencing the arts can never start too early, and an appreciation of movement, music, and spectacle can lead us into wonderful realms of possibility.'' - Janek Schergen (Artistic Director, Singapore Dance Theatre)In 2010, Artistic Director Janek Schergen choreographed a three-part ballet series, Peter & Blue, as a performance solely dedicated to family with young children. It is an hour-long ballet specially created for the wee ones, and this year’s Peter & Blue’s Forest Adventure will feature a live narration that engages with the children.Interweaving the magic of fairy-tale and meaningful morals, this children’s production tells the story of the ever-inquisitive trio - Peter, his dog, Blue, and his cat, Calico. The trio embark on yet another magical adventure, ending off with a blast at a huge birthday celebration!Children will get to meet with the dancers and take photos with them after each performance.(Recommended for children of ages 3 and above.)

There is a certain dramatic quality, precision and spontaneous energy that makes kuchipudi so exhilarating to watch. With roots in yakshagana, a folk theatre form, it is one of the eight classical dance forms of India based on the ancient Sanskrit text, Natya Shastra. This dance drama was named after a village in Andhra Pradesh, where it was created by the Brahmin villagers and began as a male-only art form.Like other Indian classical dance forms, kuchipudi employs the use of mudras (hand gestures), abhinaya (emphatic facial expressions), rhythmic footwork and music to tell the story. It is identified by its brisk, complex moves, lilting rhythms and sensual curves, and, in philosophy, expresses the eternal human desire to unite with the divine. Most of the performances in the early days included rituals and invocations to the Hindu gods and goddesses.Dancers such as Amrita Lahiri, who is known for her physicality and sprightliness, add their own sense of aesthetics to the form. One of the foremost young performers and choreographers of kuchipudi today, Amrita has been described by critics as a dancer “gifted with a radiant stage presence”. She trained under renowned gurus Leela Samson, Jaikishore Mosalikanti, Anuradha Nehru, Swapnasundari and Seetha Nagajothy, and has also been praised for bringing a new dimension to the dance form.Catch her as she performs a diverse repertoire of works by kuchipudi choreographers, including classic pieces such as Natesha Kautuam and Usha Parinayam, as a well as a tarangam, in which the dancer performs rhythmic patterns on the edge of a brass plate, a trademark of kuchipudi.Musicians:Vasudha Ravi, vocalsLakshmi Krishnan, nattuvangamV M Sai Akileshwar, mridangamSrividya Sriram, violin

A double bill by T.H.E Dance Company featuring Filled with sadness, the old body attacks by Kim Jae Duk and EARTH by Humanhood.Unleashing the unique worldviews of two choreographers with performers from T.H.E Dance Company, this double bill takes audiences on a sensorial trip from secretive inner worlds to the forceful sway of nature's elements.Billed as "ingenious and fresh" (The Business Times), award-winning South Korean artist and T.H.E's resident choreographer, Kim Jae Duk flips the switch on his trademark style and reimagines the body driven to its edge by the raw, primal force of emotion. Set to a heart-pounding music score created by Kim and featuring a 'live' performance by local tenor Leslie Tay, Filled with sadness, the old body attacks captures the heightened tragicomedy of life. EARTH draws from the fluid potency of this most grounded element in nature. Tethered to a powerful core, bodies flow and shift effortlessly in a mesmerising interplay of delicacy and dynamism. Crafted by Rudi Cole and Júlia Robert Parés - collectively known as Humanhood - EARTH is the first in a commissioned series exploring the elements, developed as part of a wider artistic vision involving collaborations within different fields. Having captivated last year’s Festival audiences with their exquisite duet, the world created for T.H.E’s dance artists in this work reflects Cole and Robert’s fascination with fusing Eastern mysticism and Western physics.

In this innovative platform, choreographers across our partner festivals gather to present award-winning works and new creations.South Koreans Ho-yeon Kim and Jung-ha Lim present their award-winning work from the 11thSeoul Dance Collection, First Abundance Society.

This double bill from selected international artists is a tour-de-force of works that evoke the gravity of the body.Shamel Pitts is a performance artist, dancer and spoken word artist from Brooklyn, who spent seven years in Tel Aviv's Batsheva Dance Company. His multidisciplinary work, Black Velvet, created together with co-performer Mirelle Martins and lighting and projection designer, Lucca del Carlo, is "a heart-piercing exploration of gender, race, identity, love and friendship" (Time Out Israel).Vestige, on the other hand, is an intense "pure movement performance that fascinates from the beginning" (Theaterkrant, Netherlands). Created by Astrid Boons (Belgium/Netherlands), a rising choreographer who has worked with renowned dance-makers such as Ohad Naharin and Jirí Kylián, this duet is an intriguing physical journey that attempts to empty the body of its humanness. Vestige was shortlisted in the top five performances of 2017 in an Amsterdam-based daily newspaper, Het Parool.(Please note that this performance contains partial frontal female nudity. Rating to be advised.)
Doa Buat Kekasih Concert
There are not many artistes able to bridge generations with their craft.Amongst this small but revered group of artistes, Ramli Sarip is the self-deprecating icon of several generations of music lovers. His fans span races and religions, from Malaysia to Brunei and Singapore to Indonesia.The boy from the kampong who claims humbly to “have very little talent” has grown to become the rocking Datuk. His gravelly voice is emotionally loaded whether he is singing about life lessons, divine providence or about aspects of love. The universality of his song has endeared him to various segments of society, to whom he is fondly known as Papa Rock.In nearly half-a-century in the music industry, Ramli has written and performed songs that explore life and living, evolving his craft along the way. From hard rock, his music may have mellowed as he finds himself walking in step with a greater cause. But while the melodies may be gentler, the messages, like his resolve, are still deeply meaningful.Since his time with Sweet Charity, the hard-rocking band he formed, playing in small gigs before hitting the larger circuits, and then rising to prominence as a solo artist, Ramli has constantly employed a work ethic that promoted the whole rather than the one.This is evident in his concerts, where he fills halls and allows a variety of musicians and styles to support his music, while allowing the individual to shine in their own right.His affable demeanour and willingness to chat over a teh tarik and a curry puff helps to cut across barriers.This approach is particularly helpful when it comes to collaborations with other artistes, which is also key to Ramli’s willingness to explore new facets of music. While many have enjoyed his duets with Ella, Datuk M. Nasir, and Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, there is one song that has endeared and endured.Doa Buat Kekasih, performed originally with Khadijah Ibrahim in 1988 has been reinterpreted numerous times in the last 30 years. It’s a tribute to the song’s central theme — Pray For Love — that people are constantly looking to connect with each other, and love is a strong bond for humanity.The song about breaking up but retaining friendship is particularly poignant in this day and age of fleeting connections. It obviously resonates with audiences, and is a sing-along favourite at his concerts.Doa Buat Kekasih came to be during the ’80s era of power ballads, in particular the Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes hit Up Where We Belong.In the upcoming Doa Buat Kekasih 30th Anniversary Tour, the song takes on a new perspective. Proceeds form the concert are being donated to Ain Society, a charity that raises funds for cancer patients.While supporting a noble cause, Doa Buat Kekasih is also presenting the opportunity for fans to see the original stars come together after many years to show how friendships and love can transcend time and generations.
