Singapore International Festival of Arts 2019 adds new shows to sold out hits Frogman and Displaced Persons’ Welcome Dinner

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.

Peter and the wolf

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.
