FFF5 | Lectures/Performances | 1st DayHo Rui An, Ho Tzu Nyen, June Yap

Misleading legends haunt recent history – whether we talk about Lebanon or Singapore. Armed with witty humour, the five FFF lectures/performances have a lot to say about fabricated narratives: from archaeological excavations and spy stories in Sidon and Tell Halaf, the genealogy of swamps and the geopolitical construct “Southeast Asia”, to the image of the sweaty colonial in Hollywood movies.

FFF5 | Ho Tzu NyenOne or Several Tigers

In the magic of a dreamlike multimedia installation, with features borrowed from Indonesian shadow puppetry, the cinema, and 3D animation, a tiger sings the story of Singapore, conversing with a representative of the colonialism that has been such a definitive influence on the city. What is, finally, the narrative that we are familiar with and how has it been constructed? What are our perceptions based on?

THEATRE

FFF5 | Leonardo Moreira & Cia. HiatoThe Odyssey

Drawing inspiration from the Homeric epics, the outstanding Brazilian collective returns to the OCC. Like contemporary rhapsodists of old, seven actors recount personal and collective odysseys, oscillating between realism and fantasy. The living/live experience of this marginal narrative challenges the fact-fiction dichotomy and the audience-actor polarity. Because, after all is said and done, we may all be equally mythical and monstrous.

Workshop for educators | Traditional songs in schoolIntroducing folk culture into the contemporary educational context

Traditional songs: You don't know when, where or by whom they were written, and you don't remember how and when you learnt them, because it's as if you've known them all your life. Now you can sing them to your students and teach them about the history of Greek folk songs.
