The Singapore International Festival of Arts’ pre-festival public engagement initiative – The O.P.E.N., will be held from June 23 to July 9 this year.
One of the highlights of The O.P.E.N. – Club Malam, is an immersive evening, made up of several interweaving performances by several artists in collaboration with Noorlinah Mohamed, Director of The O.P.E.N. Inspired by the night club scenes of the 50s and 60s, and yet different, Club Malam offers a series of ‘happenings’, popping up within the space, giving the audience a sense of the imagined world created in Club Malam. One of four anchor pieces for Club Malam is Speak Cryptic’s The Tribe, the first-ever performance inspired by his iconic characters that are featured in his art works. The intention is to have each character be brought alive by 100 public participants, breathing and living, among the ‘visitors’ of Club Malam.
As such, the O.P.E.N. seeks fun-loving, passionate and curious-minded individuals as performers of Speak Cryptic’s The Tribe. Auditions will be held on 19 March. Successful participants will then begin rehearsals (only on Saturdays) from 26 March till 2 July. Technical set-up and runs from 4, 5 and 6 July. Performance dates – 7, 8, 9 July.
No performance experience is required; minimum age for participants is 18 years. For details please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9397 7113.
