An Artful Encounter

AN ARTFUL ENCOUNTER marks the end of Kimberly Chan’s year long journey into the world of Classical singing. Her residency with Gateway Theatre, under her masterful mentors Jonathan Charles Tay, Aloysious Foong and Samantha Scott-Blackhall, has culminated to this short evening of music. What started as an exploration of Classical repertoire in preparation for a competition has turned into a new found love for the lush and dramatic landscape of Classical Repertoire. The songs chosen for this evening begins with the likes of Henry Purcell and Vaughan Williams for English Art songs, as well as the melodious styling of Henri Duparc’s French Art songs. The night then continues with the witty cabaret repertoire of William Bolcom, as well as an aria from Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera, The Old Maid and the Thief.

As You Like It

As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most glorious and sunniest comedies. Set in a romantic woodland—the Forest of Arden—the play is about a youthful search for identity, love and happiness revolving around the lively character Rosalind. She sets the tone of the play and is among Shakespeare’s most brilliant heroines.

We have set this production in Singapore and Malaysia in 1965, just as Singapore is about to be exiled from the Malayan Union and set adrift to become a wholly independent state. So, this production celebrates a crucial and confusing episode in Singapore’s bicentennial history. Shakespeare’s Forest of Arden become the jungles of Malaysia, where an exiled politician, chastened by nature, returns to assume power by play’s end and all onstage are married and celebrate new unions. Asian Arden becomes a magical wonderland where dappled sunlight and the music and sounds of nature refresh the human spirit and make miracles possible.

Smartypants and the Swordfish

Gateway Academy invites you to delve into one of our most well-loved Singapore stories: The Legend of Redhill.

Written by award-winning playwright Jean Tay, SmartyPants and the Swordfish revolves around Nadim, a young kampong boy who unexpectedly saves the kindgom from a violent swordfish attack. As a group of students explore the circumstances leading to the boy's death at the hands of the jealous King Raja, they discover that there are many ways one can dissect and reimagine a story. Through a unique interactive theatre staging, our young audiences will be immersed in the story playing swordfishes, the sultan's advisors and the villagers of Redhill.

Directed by the critically-acclaimed Samantha Scott-Blackhall, SmartyPants and the Swordfish is more than a retelling of a classic legend of Redhill. It is a timely reflection of where we have come from and where we are going as a nation, especially so in this time of this Bicentennial year. The play doesn't just retell history, it highlights the nuances of power, addresses the issue of bullying and the importance of standing up for what is right.
