Open call – M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2019: Still Waters
The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is an annual festival of theatre, dance, music, visual arts and mixed media created and presented by Singaporean and international artists. Themed differently each year, the Festival aims to bring the best of contemporary, cutting-edge and socially-engaged works to the Singapore audience.
The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is set to be a creative centre, with a twin-purpose of innovation and discussion; a platform for meaningful and provocative art to engage our increasingly connected and complex world.
The theme selected for M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2019 is Still Waters, a seminal work by ground-breaking Australia-based Singaporean artist Suzann Victor.
Suzann Victor’s site-responsive performance of Still Waters (Between Estrangement and Reconciliation) in 1998 dealt with issues pertaining to censorship, silencing, the abject and the difficulty in navigating between norms/the permitted and the alternative/estranged.
We invite you to consider Suzann Victor’s work and its many ideas, layers and symbols, and respond to our call for proposals for Fringe 2019: Still Waters. The Festival accepts proposals for both existing and new works from all disciplines that are related to the title and/or issues brought up in Still Waters.
