In Collaboration with Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay
Triple Bill
Synopsis

Advisory (Some Mature Content)

Nonsense
Devised & Performed by Down Syndrome Association (Singapore)
Conceptualised, Written & Directed by Jean Ng
Assistant Director, Julius Foo

Nonsense is a story about refugees.

It is also a story about us.

War is nonsense.

Millions losing their families and homes is nonsense.

And then,

What we take as sense may sometimes be nonsense.

What we take as nonsense may sometimes be beauty and hope.

Nonsense is an original play devised and performed by young people with Down syndrome and other intellectual differences.

The Box

Devised & Performed by St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School
Written & Directed by Dwayne Lau

In a world saturated by social media and its influences on lifestyles, latest trends and body image, the temptation is to curate a pseudo perfect way of life. The Box explores the struggles that teenagers face negotiating this superficial world, filtering away flaws and blemishes so that all that remains is a hazy tint of reality.

The Untitled Play (working title)

Staged by UNSAID
Directed by Serena Ho

A new play that will draw from crowd-sourced stories on mental illness and our attitudes towards this in contemporary society. Can we make space for multiple realities? This work is staged by a collective of young doers committed to transforming the untold narratives of Singapore into meaningful and engaging works of art.

M1 Peer Pleasure Youth Theatre Festival is a unique platform that mentors youths in the craft of theatre-making, providing opportunities for them to collaborate with their peers to stage productions with important social themes.

RECOMMENDATIONS
NINAGAWA Macbeth by Ninagawa Company (Japan)
To watch a Ninagawa production is to have an experience of a lifetime.NINAGAWA Macbeth, the iconic samurai classic that brought the late theatre titan Yukio Ninagawa international recognition, returns to Singapore after 25 years.Described by The Guardian as “achingly beautiful” and “a thing of wonder,” this tour de force transposes Shakespeare’s tragic play about a power-hungry general to the war-torn world of 16th century Azuchi-Momoyama Japan, turning Scottish warriors into katana-wielding samurai, and the highland woods into a mesmerising cherry blossom forest.Moving through breath-taking stage sets rich in symbolism, NINAGAWA Macbeth stays true to the original text while lending it the titan’s trademark blend of eastern and western styles, emphasised by a huge butsudan (Buddhist altar), witches in kabuki-style costumes, and the haunting sounds of temple gongs, Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem and Samuel Butler’s Adagio for Strings.The first of Ninagawa’s Shakespearean interpretations to be staged overseas, the 1985 international premiere of NINAGAWA Macbeth at the Edinburgh Festival put him in the pantheon of global theatre greats.In 2015, it was revived in celebration of Ninagawa’s 80th birthday. Marking the first anniversary of his passing, this special tour of NINAGAWA Macbeth is led by a stellar cast featuring eminent actors Masachika Ichimura and Yuko Tanaka.Directed by Yukio NinagawaOriginal play by William ShakespeareTranslated by Yushi OdashimaProduced by Saitama Arts Foundation and HoriPro Inc.Official airline: ANA

Showtime Productions Presents Jazzy Christmas - A Kaleidoscopic Christmas In Collaboration with Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay
There’s something for everyone this Jazzy Christmas, as Jeremy Monteiro and his friends from near and far bring you a kaleidoscope of swing, blues, bebop and THE jazz of tomorrow.If you love Frank Sinatra, Steve Lippia’s voice will have you fooled that he’s come back to life and crooning his hits and holiday staples in our Concert Hall. Grammy-nominee Lippia has performed to sold-out symphony audiences across North America, so don’t miss this chance to hear him live in Singapore. Steve will sing in the show’s Swing segment which will also feature singer Joanna Dong, fresh from her stellar showing at the recent Sing! China finals. Her beckoning and swinging style will make you feel as though she is singing directly to you!To chase the blues away, listen to the blues! If you’re feeling blue, Jeremy, Alberto Marsico on the Hammond Organ and singer Miz Dee Logwood have some hard-hitting solos, energising beats, and plenty of soul to make you feel better.  Bebop is a most energising jazz style and if you’re ready to party, Tony Lakatos turns things up a notch with some breathtaking bebop together with Jazznote recording artist Melissa Tham. Melissa was cited by the international press as having “stolen the show” during her EFG London Jazz Festival performance with Jeremy at the famed Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.  And come witness the next generation of jazz talent out of Asia including CC Lee, John Koh and Aaron James Lee, as they wow you with a dose of youthful cheer along with skills way beyond their age. Jeremy has gathered some of his closest friends to celebrate Christmas. Why don’t you do the same, and come spend A Kaleidoscopic Christmas with us?
