I went to the 2013 Cat Purrzaar at The Arts House! It’s on next week too. Anyway click more to read after the cut to see the poster since you still can attend this cat photography exhibition and visit the booths.
We had A Speculative Fiction Tea-Party (With Less Tea and More Writing) at the Earshot Cafe at The Arts House. It was by June, Dave Chua, Joyce Chng and Alvin Pang.
Previously… on Seriously Sarah with the Awaken the Dragon mini workshop…
Our pieces are done! And displayed! Wooooh. No, we didn’t do all that. It’s all contributed by everyone who attended the workshops or mini shows or did private group sessions.
Anyway, this will be at the National Museum of Singapore until the 24th March 2013, it’s near the back of the museum, past the shop and it’s free to have a looksee!
ANYWAY. My pal Wesley’s having a session at the Arts House this weekend. Y’all know where the Arts House is right?
LOCATION: Living Room (that’s the second floor of the Arts House)
Date: 16 March, Saturday
Here’s the details from the Arts House site!
Genre: Literary Arts,New Word Order
Presented by The Arts House
Better known as a filmmaker, Wesley Leon Aroozoo’s first stab at writing for the stage resulted in a provocative story about loss, searching and accepting one’s own demons. Bedok Reservoir was inspired by the spate of drownings and suicides in Bedok Reservoir and delves into a dark side of Singapore not openly discussed. The play and novel version of the story was recently published as a duo print in which the endings are different. Not a bad accomplishment for someone who almost failed his ‘O’ Levels English and could not get into a junior college.
Join Wesley as he discusses his journey to becoming a published playwright and author as well as why he channels his creativity through so many different outlets.
This session is moderated by Ghazali Muzakir, a filmmaker and theatre practitioner.
Here’s a trailer of his play!
So if you’re free this Saturday, come over and attend his session! Fun fact: If you check out his channel with his other trailers, you would notice it is called ‘moomeow’. Moomeow is a character from one of his short films that had a lovely musical presence about a scientist and well, a cow cat.
Support local artists! Woooh.
Mangafest 2013‘s events for the weekend was held at The Arts House and Kinokuniya at Ngee Ann City. The Arts House’s exhibit was from 10am to 8pm. I lurked outside, eating my Old Chang Kee porridge as I waited for my friends to arrive.
And good grief… It was Saturday morning and I saw lots of people going up to the second floor where the exhibition was held at the Gallery.
There was a literary cocktail with Garth Nix last week (1 March 2012), technically he was here in Singapore for a few school visits, a free event at The Arts House on Wednesday for a promo of his new book A Confusion of Princes and well, this one!
It was supposed to be at the Blue Room but it was held at the Earshot Cafe.
It’s cozier there.
HELLO EVERYONE! It’s February and it’s back to the usual Monday weekly posts! HO HO HO. Even though it was quiet here, we’ve I’ve been up to a lot of things and events.
