Ever had this crazy idea that acting is something that you want to try but never had the time, opportunity or courage to do so? Now is your chance!
The Singapore International Festival of Arts’ pre-festival public engagement initiative – The O.P.E.N., will be held from June 23 to July 9 this year. One of the highlights of The O.P.E.N. – Club Malam, is an collective performance piece that intertwines several interweaving performances by several artists in collaboration with Noorlinah Mohamed, Director of The O.P.E.N. Inspired by the 50s and 60s night club scene, and yet different, Club Malam offers a series of ‘happenings’, popping up within the space, giving the audience a sense of the imagined world created in Club Malam. One of four anchor pieces for Club Malam is Speak Cryptic’s The Tribe, the first-ever performance inspired by his iconic characters that are featured in his art works. The intention is to have each character brought to live by 100 public participants, breathing and living, among the ‘visitors’ of Club Malam.
The O.P.E.N. wants you, the fun-loving, passionate and curious-minded individual, to be part of that experience as a performer of Speak Cryptic’s The Tribe. Absolutely no acting experience is required, which gives you no excuse to say no. Auditions will be held on 19 March. Successful participants will then begin rehearsals (only on Saturdays) from 26 March till 2 July. Technical set-up and runs from 4, 5 and 6 July. Performance dates are on the 7, 8, 9 July.
Both a brilliant opportunity to take the next step forward and explore the world of theatre and to conquer the anxiety of performing in front of large crowds, the performance has but one requirement that you be of minimum age of 18 years. The tribe is calling out to you, it’s your turn to take the leap!
