ISTA presents...

Singapore HS cross-arts festival

March 18 - March 21, 2021

Artistic information


Title
Alexa. Where are we?

At this festival we will explore…
… the different spaces in which we live: online spaces and offline spaces, real spaces and virtual spaces, the spaces between, the spaces beyond and the spaces within.

Inspiration
An inhouse provocation.

Frame
Artistic, cultural, conceptual.

Please note
This is a cross-arts festival. Each participating school will be required to bring equal numbers of students for each of the arts disciplines listed below.
There will be 6 ensemble groups focussing on: film, music, visual art, dance, theatre and technical art.
As such BEFORE students sign up teachers will need to ensure that collaboration happens with faculty and students across the disciplines so students sign up with a discipline in mind. What we want to avoid is that students sign up and are then allocated to a discipline. Early consultation with colleagues across the art forms is essential.
If a school intends to bring a group of e.g. 12 students then there will be 2 students in each of the ensembles above.
