Arts in Your Neighbourhood is returning from 9 to 26 March 2017. Featuring more than 30 entertaining performances and activities at 12 locations island-wide, Arts in Your Neighbourhood will bring the arts to people who live, play and work in Yishun, Yew Tee, Tampines, Woodlands, Marina Bay, Buona Vista, Chai Chee, Toa Payoh, Bedok and Ang Mo Kio.
This season’s focus is on Yishun, a town rich in culture, tradition and heritage. Residents can look forward to arts offerings that draw inspiration from Yishun’s history, including commissions such as Arts Imprints Around My Neighbourhood, District 27 and The Real Estates and Water: A Musical Tribute.
A total of four new works have been specially commissioned for March’s edition of AYN:
- A Dragon Behind The Door & More!, a dynamic interplay of puppets, music, larger-than-life characters for an immersive experience of theatrical performance and craft activities
- Muzik Kita – Celebrating Malay Traditional Music – An exhilarating performance by traditional Malay music ensembles from Singapore and overseas
- District 27, an immersive site-specific dance performance which reminisces the heritage of Yishun and Sembawang
- Whisper to a Roar, an interactive visual and sound installation which invites visitors to compose their favourite neighbourhood soundtracks
All activities are free of charge.
