Welcome and Farewell Dinners
Attendees at the Welcome Dinner will be treated to a performance titled, From Oral History Transcripts to Theatre. A collaboration between the Oral History Centre (National Archives of Singapore) and students from the School of the Arts’ (SOTA) Theatre and Visual Arts faculties, this piece is a dramatisation of the life stories of the Centre’s interviewees. Working closely with the interviewees, the students explore and retell their life stories through the construction of memory boxes, containing curated archives of the interviewees’ belongings, objects, photos and documents.

Performances have also been lined up for the Farewell Dinner:

The Bukit View Primary School Anglung & Kulintang Ensemble, whose students come from various ethnic backgrounds, embodies the essence of a multi-cultural group. They will be showcasing songs from Southeast Asia, including Jangar Bali, which is based on one of the most popular dances from Bali. The Ensemble will also enchant you with a wonderful rendition of Rasa Sayang, a famous Malay folk song whose title literally translates to “loving feeling”.

Following that, join the M’Ode Wind Quintet for a journey through Southeast Asia as they bring you tunes from Singapore and neighbouring countries. From Singapore’s Xinyao favourites and the beloved National Day song Home, to some of the instantly recognisable folk songs of our neighbours in Southeast Asia, celebrate all things ASEAN at this performance.
