Rasas – Kandyan Dance

 

Kandyan Dance is a ritual-dance custom that only evolved into a performance art in the 20th century. Its origin can be traced back again to pre-Buddhist moments, and since it was preserved through oral tradition, it is quite obvious that the ritual theatre, like all living art forms, offers been changing through the years: discarding some components and absorbing others, progressing and adapting. It was only in the 1930s, with the emergence of Chitrasena, a virtuoso in the traditional dance forms of Sri Lanka and his innovative work in getting the dance to the stage, that this ancient art form was given new life. Chitrasena, determined to keep the historic dance forms alive in a world that was rapidly changing, adapted and refined it to match the modern stage.

The most well-known of Kandyan dances, Ves, is derived from these ritual dances and features elaborate costumes and headgear that are considered to be sacred. Performed only by men originally, Ves was adapted for feminine dancers in the 20th century.

Established in the 1940s the Chitrasena Dance Firm is definitely Sri Lanka’s oldest & most prestigious dance company. Reputed for being the pioneers and revolutionists in the dance sphere in Sri Lanka – the business continues to experiment without compromise and pursues their objective of preserving the original dance forms while innovating within them.

Date and Time:

14 Oct 2016 : 7.15pm & 9pm

Rasas – Lakhaon Kaol

Lakhaon Kaol is one of Cambodia’s oldest classical dance forms. Stone inscriptions from the tenth century reveal the form was originally called Phea Ny – produced from Sanskrit and meaning to inform or recite a tale. Phea Ny was performed by male dancers and musicians and shares this characteristic exclusively, amongst others, with the present-day Lakhaon Kaol. All performers are masked except for those taking female roles.

Cambodians respect Lakhaon Kaol while a sacred talent with overtones of a spiritual ritual. Yet, regardless of its sacred character, Lakhaon Kaol also serves as entertainment at particular occasions within families, at monasteries and to welcome visitors to a village. It offers only one narrative: the tale of Reamker, the Cambodian version of the Hindu Ramayana epic which came to Cambodia in the sixth century.

Performances of Lakhaon Kaol are accompanied by the Pin Paet ensemble, the traditional Cambodian classical orchestra. The dance was typically performed around enough time of Khmer New Calendar year to purge the city of bad omens and as an entreaty to the gods to bring villagers pleasure and fertility.

Amrita Performing Arts is an International NGO located in Phnom Penh, committed to creating Cambodian contemporary theater and dance, responding to the creative drive of a young generation of performers passionately focused on ushering their country’s ancient executing arts heritage into the future. Founded in 2003 with a mission to help revive and preserve the wide spectral range of Cambodia’s traditional carrying out arts, the ongoing company has evolved to focus more on modern creativeness in theater and dance. Amrita Performing Arts produces fully staged productions of modern Cambodian theater and dance featuring professional Cambodian performers.

Singapore NDP 2016

A Preview of NDP 2016

NDP 2016

“Building our Singapore of Tomorrow” is the theme for this year National Day.  After our Nation’s 50th grand birthday, it is time to start to unite Singaporeans in the next chapter of nation-building.   NDP 2016 is different from the other NDP.

NDP 2016 ticketI am very fortunate to have 2 tickets during the NDP 2016 rehearsal on 9th July, a month before the actual NDP!  This year is the first time NDP is organised in the Sport Hub.  It is also the 2nd most invested (expensive) NDP event after the Golden Jubilee event last year.  It will be very different from the usual Marina Bay or the old Padang NDP as it will be housed indoor without a few familiar event such as the Parachute Jumping and the moving parade of the heavy armoured vehicles.  However, it introduced a few new ingredients that make this year’s NDP special such as the dazing 3D lazer pyrotechnics display and the first time indoor fireworks!

 

 

NDP 2016

burger

As I only had 2 tickets, I could only bought my son along for this exciting event.  We were there before 430pm as we had to be seated by 5pm.   The Stadium was packed with people and organised grouped of visitors mostly from the primary school. We were hungry and we got ourselves a hotdog which come with a celebrative packaging of a a mini-flag on top.

 

 

NDP 2016 fun pack

Under every seat, there is a Fun Pack filled with cookies, drinks, coupons and other useful items such as the fold-able fan and the luminous wristband.   Each of us got a different colour of red and white.  To immerse in the fun, we took out the temporary tattoo stickers inside the fun-pack and tattooed onto our face with the Singapore Flag and the Merlion logo.  Slowly all the empty seats around us where filled with people.   We were very fortunate to seat right in the middle and facing the front of the whole parade.   As we were seating high-up, we got a bird eye view of the whole stadium.   Surprisingly, although it was open-aired, we did not feel too hot as there were occasional breeze blowing our way.

Before the parade start, the “Badang” rocks where lifted up and organised properly to hang in the air.  This year, one of the highlight of the event is the retold of the Legend of “Badang and the Singpore Stone”.  Too many us, we may not be familiar with this legend of Singapore but to the younger generation this was being taught in the Secondary 1 History syllables.

Before the performance, the 3D Tower was being tested out.

There waas the normal favourites such as the Parade and Ceremonyand the Military Tattoo with a Precision Drill Display.

This year, what is different is the availability of Indoor Fireworks and 3D Projection Displays.  Lights and Lasers were shooting out from all directions.

One of the highlight is the appearance of the magical Unicorn.   It appeared in the centre of the stage and it slowly floated up towards one of the upper corner of the stadium.

The floating tower  and the landscape of Singapore is very impressive.  They hanged above the performers and they changed colors upon the reflection of the lights.

NDP 2016

At the end of the whole show, we stood up to sing for our favourite National Day’s Song “Count on Me, Singapore”.  What make it unique this time is the introduction of the sign-language along with the song.   Now I know how to make the sign-language for Singapore!

Watch the grand finale with the stunning firework display in the indoor stadium for the first time, as the event returns to the National Stadium after a decade.Very unique and different from the other NDP.  This year’s NDP 2016 is definitely worth to watch and something to look forward to on the actual day.    Stand Up for Singapore!!!

Educational Programme – Water Wally

ABC Waters

This is a good educational programme that you may want to consider to bring your kids along to learn about the importance of water and how we can keep our waters clean.

Launched in 2006, PUB’s Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme has transformed Singapore’s utilitarian drains, canals and reservoirs into beautiful streams, rivers and lakes that bring Singaporeans closer to water so that they can better appreciate and cherish this precious resource. By creating new community and recreational spaces, we also transform our island into a city of gardens and water.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of ABC Waters Programme, PUB has designed a collection of 10 life-sized Water Wally figurines (Water Wally Explores ABC Waters) to showcase the features (e.g. rain gardens) and activities (learning trails, canoeing) that the community can enjoy at the ABC Waters sites. Through a roving display of the figurines at different places, we hope to convey to the public the value of water and their role in keeping our waters clean. City Square Mall will be the first location where these figurines are displayed.
