      PERFORMANCE WITH POST-SHOW DIALOGUE | Cassettes 100, José Maceda

      Free: registration required The Singapore premiere of José Maceda’s Cassettes 100 (1971) will involve 100 performers roving the National Gallery Singapore in a one-time-only showcase where ritual meets the avant-garde. First presented at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines, the work has since been restaged in different parts of the world as a gathering of the local arts community, a showcase of bold experimentation, and an assertion of individualism, freedom and the Philippines' diverse cultural heritage. The Singapore premiere will be directed by Dr Jonas Baes, choreographed by Elizabeth de Roza and filmed by Sherman Ong. It will feature the mass movement of 90 participants led by 10 artists and performers, playing pre-recorded tracks of instruments, voices and sounds indigenous to the Philippines in unison. Kindly note that Cassettes 100 will only take place once, followed by a post-show dialogue between Dr Jonas Baes and curator Joleen Loh (also at the Padang Atrium).
