With less than two weeks to the opening of the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) 2019, new shows have been added to two sold-out hits.
A new show has been added on 25 May (Saturday) at 3pm for the show Displaced Persons’ Welcome Dinner, by critically acclaimed theatre company, Checkpoint Theatre. It is a multidisciplinary theatrical work commissioned by SIFA 2019 that investigates the truth of the aid industry, battling with the issues of conflict and the toxic nature of institutions.
Next, a new show has been added for Frogman, a thrilling murder mystery by critically-acclaimed UK company curious directive. The additional show will be on 23 May (Thursday) at 10.30pm. Frogman breaks out of the traditional mould of storytelling and leads theatre-goers into an immersive digital experience, integrating live theatre and virtual reality.
What’s more, SIFA announced that local emcee, TV/video host and brand ambassador Jamie Yeo will be narrating two sessions of the beloved musical fairy tale of Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, a unique musical that combines live animation, puppetry and beautiful music by a 6-piece band.
