M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018

M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018
The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is an annual festival of theatre, dance, music, visual arts and mixed media created and presented by Singaporeans 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 2018 theme "Let's Walk" comes from the title of a series of striking street performances by eminent Singaporean contemporary artist, Amanda Heng. For Fringe 2018, we invite you to consider this culturally significant work by one of our most important artists. Amanda began this series in 1999 and performed the work in Singapore, Japan, France, Poland, Indonesia, Sweden and Spain.

AC/E supports the Asian Premiere at the Festival of "All In" by the Spanish Company ATresBandes. With it ATresbandes takes us on a wild ride in All In, blending striking visuals, physical theatre and absurdist text, to present this darkly playful exploration of the human condition. Through vignettes set in disparate worlds—incorporating dictatorships, nightclubs, national anthems, education and self-help manuals—All In offers different incarnations of how we encounter seemingly harmless systems of social control. Everyday situations take unexpected turns into the absurd and poignant, linked by the common thread of an outsider who is subjected to pressures to conform, but seeks nonetheless to assert his or her independence and freedom.
