A public showing of performances scores

Choreographer and Cultural Medallion recipient, Angela Liong conceived Project Search 8 Immortals — A Trans-Water Arts Odyssey as a three-year practice-based research to explore cross-discipline innovation.  

Mirroring the sea-crossing episode of the familiar Chinese grassroots legend -- The 8 Immortals, the creative assumption is to gather a group of people with different professional disciplines, ask them to ponder on the world in flux, and allow diverse perspectives to interact (even clash) through tackling creative projects with common topics inspired by the motley group of the 8 Immortals.   

Four key topics inspired by the attributes of the 8 Immortals are identified for the collaboration.   The creative findings will be presented as milestone presentation through modular format in scheduled intervals.   The second of the four creative topics is called IMAGINE OCEAN.

Come see ancient and current maritime motifs captured in riveting performance score prototypes - the result of a creative hackathon by the communal effort of a group of artists, scientist, designers, academic, and seafarer.

    Guided by the dance facilitators, participants of all ages(children, adults and seniors) will then perform the simple but rhythmic gestural moves while sitting down throughout the entire session. A saxophonist will play whimsical songs to enhance the urban chill of the 20-min event.

    THE MAGICAL CHATTERBOX

    17 - 23 June 2016

    National Design Centre

    a board game design project by children

    The Magical Chatterbox is a design project presented by the arts granary organised by Arts Fission. The board game design is inspired by ancient Chinese bone-scripts and referenced the oracle applications found in I-Ching, the Book of Change. 

     

    For the design project, the children age 7 – 14, used the chatterbox and played the number game. The chatterbox game allows sheer chance to come up with the design materials that determine and shape the character of the avatars and their habitats for the board game.
