The Arts House x BronzAge Gamelan
This programme is part of Textures 2020: A Weekend with Words. Performed in Malay with English surtitles.
As an island nation, where does Singapore place itself on the world map and how does she chart her evolving self? Drawing inspiration from bilingual poetry anthology, Sikit-Sikit Lama-Lama Jadi Bukit, this performance features selected poems which seek to (re)discover the sacred relationship between islands, human beings and their environment. Reflecting the subtlety and complexity of life while composing interlocking rhythmic patterns of the (is)land and tones of the sea, don’t miss this one-of-a-kind performance.
Free with registration.
