Miss British is everywhere, in everyone. She is a story of servitude and repetition.

Based on an original idea by Sharon Frese, Miss British is a piece that excavates the prejudices and social hierarchies left behind by colonialism across the planet. Combining theatre, dance, and video installation, the piece is a voyage across the oceans of our shared pasts.

When: April 5-7 
Where: Esplanade Theatre Studio
Entry: SGD 35

2. The Kalari Academy

Dubbed as Singapore’s first lady of jazz, Rani Singam performs not just as a vocalist, but as a narrator who tells the story of our collective lives.

The music-movie theme of this concert was inspired by “Remember” the love theme from the movie Cinema Paradiso which forms part of the programme. The audience is invited to experience the concert as a movie - where one enters a world of musical stories filled with love, companionship, fulfilment, life’s curveballs, disappointments and tragedies.
