Southernmost – Open Forum

  • The Arts House 1 Old Parliament Lane Singapore, 179429 Singapore (map)

Presented by experimental theatre company Emergency Stairs, the first edition of Southernmost is a theatre festival that will bring together some of the most outstanding and established traditional and contemporary theatre artists from the region for an intensive two-week intercultural exchange. It features a series of workshops and public presentations, as well as an open forum.

The open forum will feature six invited speakers – prominent artists, arts managers, academics and policy makers from Singapore and the region – with Hong Kong theatremaker Danny Yung as forum commentator.

What is intercultural theatre in Singapore at this juncture? What is the point of an intercultural dialogue? Through this forum, we will attempt to understand our own baggage, limitations and strengths, and why these exist. The next step will be to define, and then redefine, intercultural theatre in Singapore.

Speakers: Alvin Tan (Singapore), Alfian Sa'at (Singapore), Cedric Chan (Hong Kong), Corrie Tan (Singapore), Lim Wah Guan (Singapore), Jobina Tan (Singapore)

Venue: Chamber@The Arts House

Tickets: $12 at the door, or $78 for a 12-day festival pass
