Get Your Arts & Culture Fix Here

You snooze, you lose — tickets go on sale today


You probably go for the odd theatre play here and there, but in just a few weeks' time, you have the opportunity to break new ground when it comes to being culturally en pointe.

Kickstarting the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA), the O.P.E.N is a mini-festival of sorts, to whet your appetite for what's to come when SIFA begins on 11 August. Based on the impressive lineup, you're in for an unforgettable time over four months.

Some highlights: Discover the union of art to photojournalism in I Know Why The Rebel Sings, a showcase including previously unexhibited images by Iranian photojournalist Newsha Tavakolian. Catch the feature-length anthology of 12 short films, Sixty Six, fearing trip tales of pop art and comic-book superheroes by celebrated American avant-garde filmmaker Lewis Klahr. Or rock up to Club Malam, when Kallang Airport is transformed to host an explosive rave where music, digital media, installation and performance collide.

Fashionistas can also catch French fashion historian Olivier Saillard presenting Models Never Talk, a performance where former supermodels such as Christine Bergstrom discuss their careers.

The O.P.E.N. runs from June 22 to July 9, while SIFA runs from Aug 11 to Sept 17. For more info on the programmes as well as early bird and SIFA and The O.P.E.N ticket deals, click here.
