The Wright Stuff Festival - PERMANENCE

Description
Luggage in tow and drink in hand, Blanche is back home. Tired of running and longing for more, she steps back into her old life, colliding with everything she once left behind. Permanence weaves in and out Blanche’s life at different points in time, following her frantic journey as she struggles to survive, fighting the dread of domesticity, the fraughtness of relationships, and the toxicity of a past that she can’t seem to shake off. Through it all, she comes face to face with herself from the past, the present and the future, with a front-row seat in seeing how a life slowly breaks across time.

PERFORMANCE | Cassettes 100, José Maceda

Description

Free with General Admission ticket
The Singapore premiere of José Maceda’s Cassettes 100 (1971) will involve 100 roving performers within the National Gallery Singapore in an exclusive, one-time-only showcase where ritual meets the avant-garde.
First staged at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines, the work has since been restaged in multiple parts of the world as a gathering of the local arts community, a showcase of bold experimentation, and an assertion of individualism, freedom and the Philippines' diverse cultural heritage.
The Singapore premiere will be directed by Dr Jonas Baes, choreographed by Elizabeth de Roza and filmed by Sherman Ong. It will feature the mass movement of 100 artists and performers, playing in unison the pre-recorded tracks of instruments, voices and sounds indigenous to the Philippines.
Kindly note that Cassettes 100 will only take place once.
