Theatre Memories: 50 Years of Singapore Theatre – is an immersive exhibition of sights and sounds that opens to the public for 10 days in April at The Arts House, bringing them the recollections and anecdotes of 50 notable theatre practitioners as Singapore celebrates its 50th year of independence.
Funded by the Singapore Memory Project’s irememberSG Fund, the exhibition includes oral histories from well-known individuals such as Ivan Heng, Siti Khalijah Zainal, Haresh Sharma, Glen Goei and Margaret Chan, capturing the experiences of stage managers, actors and directors alike.
As part of the exhibition programme, Theatre Memories invites artists to submit proposals for the creation of an original “audio walk” that will be offered to the public as free downloadable content, to be enjoyed as part of the exhibition experience.
An audio walk may be from 20 – 30 minutes in length, and may consist of sound design, original music, field recordings, archival material, audio interviews and reflections.
An audio walk must create a route for audiences to follow.
Suggested themes, though not restricted to:
- Creative responses to spaces related to Singapore theatre and theatre history
- Creative responses to Singaporean plays
- Audio explorations of different forms and styles of Singaporean theatre
The fee for the project is S$500.
Applications close on 6 March 2015. Results will be announced on 9 March. Final delivery by 27 March 2015.
