Singapore Arts Festival 2008 Updates

 

La La La Human Steps (Amjad)

Due to unforeseen changes in its Asian tour schedule, La La La Human Steps has re-scheduled its performances in Singapore to 20 and 21 June 2008.

 

The National Arts Council would like to apologise to its patrons for this change of the company’s performance dates. As a virtuosic group eminently regarded in the contemporary dance world, the Council has through its best effort secured the new dates in the later part of the Festival to ensure that audiences here do not lose this rare opportunity of catching their thrilling performances. These new dates are also made possible with special mutual co-operation of the La La La Human Steps company and its Artistic Director Édouard Lock.

 

SISTIC will contact patrons who have bought tickets to advise them on admission/new purchases/refunds.  To minimise inconvenience, patrons can use their original tickets on 6 and 7 June for admission to performances on 20 and 21 June respectively, with no change to their seats (for example, patron with a 6 Jun ticket can attend 20 Jun show). 

 

Patrons who are unable to attend the performances can get their refunds at the SISTIC Box Office located at Singapore Indoor Stadium from 14 May to 20 May 2008.

 

Refunds will be made through the original mode of payment and tickets are required to be presented at the SISTIC Box Office. Refunds hours are from Monday to Saturday, from 12 noon to 8pm, and on Sundays and Public Holidays, from 1pm to 7pm.

Singapore Dance Theatre (Continuum)

In Continuum, David Dawson's The Grey Area will now be replaced with another ofDawson's pieces, A Million Kisses to My Skin. Created by David Dawson for Het Nationale Ballet (Dutch National Ballet), A Million Kisses to My Skin is a post-classical dance work that visualises the baroque style patterns of Bach’s Piano Concerto No 1. Extravagant and free-flowing movements constantly emerge and dissolve across the stage, displaying a virtuosic vocabulary that is elegant and refined. As tactile as its name suggests, the work was hailed by critics as “cerebral dancing of the highest quality”.
