ALL IN BY ATRESBANDS

Fri 19 Jan to Sat 20 Jan 2018, 8pm
Esplanade Recital Studio

Barcelonan theatre company ATRESBANDES combines striking visuals, physical theatre and absurdist text to explore the human condition. “All In” comprises vignettes covering a wide range of settings such as nightclubs, education and self-help manuals; the common thread being that they are seemingly harmless systems of social control. Are we ever truly free from the tyranny of the crowd? This programme is part of the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018.

REMEMBERING BOWIE

Independent cinema The Projector is honouring Bowie month by showing the films “Labyrinth” and Christopher Nolan’s “The Prestige” this weekend. The former has Bowie playing the emotionally-layered Goblin King, a role that has become a cultural icon over the years.
