As a theatre festival, Southernmost is conceptualised as Emergency Stairs’ answer to the question, “How do you create an arts festival for the future?”

Southernmost proposes a festival format that focuses more on process and artist. It brings together traditional and contemporary artists to examine the relevance of the past to the present, in a series of open rehearsals and showcases that build up towards a production and forum.

Southernmost invites the audience to closely follow the artistic dialogues that happen both onstage and offstage. Using the process of critique and self-critique, Southernmost is an attempt to develop a long-term vision for how exchange and change can happen in the future.


About Emergency Stairs
Emergency Stairs is an experimental theatre company that walks on the fringe while dialoguing with the centre. By focusing on the processes behind creation, we create self-reflexive and irreverent works that disrupt and challenge existing notions of art-making. Through this, we aspire to become a platform for artistic dialogue within Singapore and beyond.

SM2018 Programmes - Showcase, Creation, Dialogue

[SHOWCASE]

The body is a key medium through which artistic dialogue can occur. The body’s vocabulary of movement and gesture can be a visualisation of an artist’s art form, and provide a lens into the rich culture behind the artist’s practice.

Join us for the showcases of three traditional arts masters and masterclass students, across two evenings. Glimpse into the rituals and stories embedded in the masters’ practices, and observe the students’ explorations of the relevance of traditional body vocabularies to the contemporary theatre of today.

1. Traditional Arts Showcase - Kanji Shimizu
Date: 3 Nov 2018, Sat
Time: 7:30 - 8:30pm
Venue: Black Box, Centre 42

3. Traditional Arts Masters’ Showcase - Didik Nini Thowok & Nget Rady
Date: 9 Nov 2018, Fri
Time: 8:30 - 9:30pm
Venue: Black Box, Centre 42
Artists: Didik Nini Thowok (Yogyakarta) - cross-gender classical Javanese dance and Nget Rady (Phnom Penh) - Cambodian classical male masked dance


[CREATION]

Difference is the starting point of understanding. The art of each form, the culture of each city, are like mirrors to our self. By interpreting the other’s movement and sound, we start to understand our own culture, and our attitude and yearning for culture.

Join us in the rehearsal room to witness the interactions and artistic processes of 7 local and international artists across the disciplines of dance, theatre and music, coming together to challenge the boundaries of intercultural dialogue to co-create the Journey to Nowhere performance under the direction of Emergency Stairs’ artistic director Liu Xiaoyi.

Artists:
♦ Amin Farid (Singapore) - traditional Malay dance
♦ Andy Chia (Singapore) - experimental ethnic music, traditional Chinese flute
♦ Didik Nini Thowok (Yogyakarta) - cross-gender classical Javanese dance
♦ Elizabeth Chan (Singapore) - Chinese dance
♦ Kanji Shimizu (Tokyo) - Noh theatre
♦ Loi Ee Vian (Singapore) - Ruan and liuqin, Chinese orchestra
♦ Liu Xiaoyi (Singapore) - experimental director
♦ Nget Rady (Phnom Penh) - Cambodian classical male masked dance

[DIALOGUE]

The Open Forum is an attempt to critique the structure of Southernmost as an arts festival, including the forum itself, in relation to other arts festivals and other forms of cultural exchange in Singapore.

Following the One Table Two Chairs format and spirit, the Forum will be a series of 4 dialogues with 1 table, 2 chairs, 2 speakers and 20 minutes each. Various voices within the Singapore arts scene - artists, arts managers, critics, producers, policymakers and researchers - will come together to discuss the ideas and conversations that have arisen during Southernmost 2018.

6. Open Forum
Date: 11 Nov 2018, Sun
Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm
Venue: Black Box, Centre 42
