Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is cooking up a sumptuous feast for its 16th edition of Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts, which will be held from the eighth day of the Lunar New Year on 23 February till 4 March 2018. The annual festival will feature a delectable line-up of theatre, dance, and music programmes by outstanding Chinese artists from Singapore and beyond, for all to enjoy during the festive period. This year’s Huayi features a diverse and very exciting programme line-up headlined by three new creations by Singapore artists—the festival’s first-ever commissioned work staged at the 2,000-seat Esplanade Theatre; a site-specific theatrical experience staged at Esplanade’s basement carpark which has never been used as a performance space, and an inter-disciplinary work by two stalwarts of the Singapore arts scene collaborating together for the first time. Adding to the mix is a co-commission that features a Singapore actor working with his regional counterparts; overseas artists introducing their youthful dynamism to audiences here, as well as returning artists who will be presenting their refreshing takes on the arts!
When: 23 Feb - 4 Mar 2018,
