Back for its fifth year, Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) announced the grand return of its marquee event Cultural Extravaganza, which will take place from 13 May to 19 June 2022. Notable local art groups like Bhaskar’s Arts Academy, Nine Years Theatre, T.H.E Dance Company, TENG Ensemble, Jazz Association (Singapore), Ding Yi Music Company, and PLAYInc will be joining this year’s festival lineup.

Cultural Extravaganza

A central theme of Cultural Extravaganza 2022 is the idea of “crossovers”, which represents the endless possibilities of creativity through collaborations between different arts groups in Singapore. This is part of the festival’s efforts to represent and re-present culture for every generation.

SCCC Cultural Extravaganza

With 14 digital and on-site programmes over 38 days, ranging from musicals, concerts, interactive exhibitions, and dance productions, Cultural Extravaganza 2022 will gather groups from various genres to explore the intersections of cultures, art forms, and generations.

A Collaboration Between Art Forms

Bringing together arts groups from different disciplines, catch newly-imagined and captivating performances made possible by their groundbreaking collaborations.

Whether it’s an alluring display of Chinese chamber music combined with dance, or a fusion of poetry, calligraphy and music, audiences can expect a collision of ideas to come to life at Cultural Extravaganza 2022.

Some of the cross-disciplinary programmes include SAtheCollective, Nine Years Theatre, and T.H.E Dance Company’s Windward Side of the Mountain, PlayInc’s Shadow Moon, and Ding Yi Music Company’s Seven Sisters’ Sonata.

A Beautiful Tapestry of Cultures

Singapore is a rojak of cultures, traditions, and ethnicities and this has definitely played an important part in shaping our distinctive local Chinese identity.

Witness the elegant fusion of Chinese and Indian dance by catching the restaging of Butterfly Lovers, a landmark work by the late Santha Bhaskar, a Cultural Medallion Recipient and doyenne of Indian classical dance.

Drawing inspiration from Chinese folklore, this dance production by Bhaskar’s Arts Academy re-interprets a classic Chinese tale through Bharatanatyam dance.

Cross-cultural elements are also found in the Rhythm of Time mini-film festival and the Mythology RElooked exhibition. The former includes three films that feature the Malay and Indian communities in Singapore. The latter contains artworks of Chinese myths and legends created by artists from different ethnic backgrounds such as Moon Malek (Muneera Malek) and Reza Hasni.

The Perfect Blend of Old and New

When old meets new, sparks fly, and ideas collide! Cultural Extravaganza breathes new life into traditions with a range of cross-generational programmes. From an Insta-worthy tiger art installation inspired by Chinese folktales and nursery rhymes to new renditions of timeless Chinese classics, there are plenty of offerings for young and old.

The TENG Ensemble brings innovation to age-old traditions through The Forefathers Project, a lecture-concert that features original works inspired by Singapore’s Chinese music pioneers and our diverse local dialect musical traditions.

“Cultural Extravaganza will showcase the many ways by which our vibrant Chinese Singaporean culture can inspire our local community. Most importantly, we also seek to re-ignite their love and appreciation for our local culture by highlighting the rich crossovers in Singapore,” says CEO of SCCC, Mr Low Sze Wee.

Cultural Extravaganza 2022 offers both free and ticketed events. For ticketed programmes, SISTIC ticket sales commence from 12 April 2022 onwards.
