Description Of Opportunity:
The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is calling for applications for Fringe 2019, which will be curated around the theme Still Waters, taken from the title of 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.

In the physical and cultural context of Singapore at the time, Suzann’s work was highly charged with very specific questions about the politics of art, the body and public space in Singapore. But it is such a rich work that might invite a diversity of other investigations and responses about the fugitive, the abject; about estrangement and reconciliation in society, and about “the remaking of histories”.

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.

The deadline for applications is Friday 2 March 2018, 12pm Singapore time.
