Love and Mercy: Into the World of B...
For the first time ever, there is a chance to watch Bunraku (Japanese puppet theatre) in Singapore! As part of Japan Creative Centre (JCC)’s 10th anniversary, the Singapore Bunraku Steering Committee presents this UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage on the local stage. Appreciate Japan’s history and traditional culture through two Bunraku performances. Introduction to Bunraku: What are Tayu, Shamisen and Puppets? (40mins) The Red-Hot Love – The Fire Watchtower (10mins) Intermission (20mins) The Miracle at Tsubosaka Temple – The House of Sawaichi and The Mountain (55mins) The Red-Hot Love – The Fire WatchtowerOshichi is in love with a man named Kichisaburo, but due to circumstances of the families, the two are unable to marry. One day, Kichisaburo loses a sword that was to be offered to the Imperial Palace. If he could not find it by the next morning, he will be ordered to commit suicide. Upon learning that, Oshichi finds the sword and tries to deliver it to Kichisaburo. But the day is turning dark, the wooden door of the town has closed and she cannot reach Kichisaburo. She suddenly remembers the fire watchtower, that when a fire broke out and the bell rang, the wooden doors opened all at once. However, if it is not a fire, it is a crime to ring the bell, and those who sound it will be sentenced to burn in a fire. However, Oshichi makes up her mind and starts to climb… The Miracle at Tsubosaka Temple – The House of Sawaichi and The MountainThe blind Sawaichi, who lives in Tsubosaka, Yamato Province, is helped by his wife Osato’s side earnings and they struggle to make ends meet. Sawaichi has felt that Osato is not around at home in the evening and begins to suspect that she might not be working. But in fact, Osato heard about a cure for Sawaichi’s blindness and went to Temple Tsubosaka to pray that her husband’s blindness will be cured. After Sawaichi learns of this, he apologises to his faithful wife for suspecting her. Despairing over the thought that his wife will never be happy if he is around, he throws himself into the valley only to have Osato follow him. By the mercy of the Goddess Kannon (Goddess of Mercy), she saves both husband and wife and restores Sawaichi’s sight.

The Australian Young Pianist Isabel...
This highly recommended event is one of the five tour concerts of the young Australian pianist, Isabella Lu. Following a successful piano recital tour in 2018 and her Sydney Opera House (SOH) debut early this year, Isabella Lu will tour around 5 cities in 3 Asian-pacific countries in October and present her Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20 to nearly 4000 audiences in some of those world-class concert halls, including Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in Australia, Xinghai Concert Hall in China and Esplanade in Singapore. She will be working with Mosman Symphony Orchestra to debut her piano concerto in Sydney Opera House Concert Hall on Oct 11th. Terence Fong, the Australian pianist, will be performing the second piano in her other concerto concerts. This event is Isabella’s first stage appearance in Singapore and should not be missed out for families and classical music lovers. Her performance is especially attractive to families with young music learners. The 9 years old artist always inspires the love of classical music in young children with her unparallel passion and fresh perspectives for music.Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466This concerto was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1785. The first performance took place at the Mehlgrube Casino in Vienna in 1785, with the composer as the soloist.
WILD RICE @ FUNAN GRAND OPENING SEA...
MerdekaAs the Singapore Bicentennial is celebrated, six young people form a group called Raffles Must Fall to examine our country's colonial legacy. During their gatherings, they pore over forgotten texts and artefacts, re-enacting scenes from the past to better understand the nightmare of subjugation... and the dream of self-determination.Drawing upon a wealth of historical documentation, including speeches, newspaper articles, petitions and songs, "Merdeka / 獨立 /சுதந்திரம்" confronts us with questions about our colonial past and how it still echoes through our present and into our future.Why celebrate the beginning of colonialism rather than its end? Has Singapore gained independence without truly undergoing a process of decolonisation? And if Raffles must fall, what will he take down with him?Written by the award-winning Alfian Sa'at in collaboration with up-and-coming playwright Neo Hai Bin, this provocative and moving new play examines how our history and humanity have been shaped – and shattered – by the forces of colonialism.
