Tamil Comedy Festival

The funniest trio in town! Three leading stand-up comedians Manoj Prabhakar, Jagan Krishnan and Praveen Kumar are coming together to give you a night of non-stop laughter at the first-ever Tamil Comedy Festival.

Jagan Krishnan is truly a versatile and entertaining stand-up comic, who will charm you with his musical abilities, tickle your funny bones with his jokes and, finally he will make a mockery of everything you hold dear using his acerbic wit! He is one of the very few musical stand-up comedians from Chennai who brings comedy and music together.

Manoj Prabhakar is one of the top comics from Chennai who while pursuing his engineering degree found out that he has a great sense of humour and has since then written jokes. However, he considers his degree as his biggest joke till date. A software engineer by profession, his humorous take on his middle class upbringing, his work life, his education and everything else that frustrates him have been received with resounding applauses across India!

Praveen Kumar is a Bangalore based stand-up comedian who has done about 1400 shows all around the globe. His family-friendly clean comedy is a total hit! 4 specials in, he has currently started touring for his fifth one. He has been rated as one of the Top 10 stand-up comedians in India by Times of India and one of top 10 comics in India to look out for by IBN live.

So, get ready for an epic night filled with epic jokes delivered by the most epic trio in Singapore! Book your tickets now.

Here I Am

A visual arts workshop where children will create their own self-portrait to be digitised and hung as part of a growing exhibition demonstrating the complexity of children’s self-expression and cultural plurality. This workshop extends themes of self-reflection, diversity, multiplicity and community as well as building fundamental skills in self-portraiture and watercolors.

The large scale growing installation develops each day with the artworks of the previous day. The concept of this artwork shows the diversity of faces in our community as well as the perspective of each child artist and how they see themselves.

This workshop was created by QPAC’s Out of the Box Festival in Brisbane.

In this hands-on workshop, children paint their own self portrait. In doing so, they're asked to reflect on questions like: How do I want to be seen in the world? How is my face a reflection of who I am? How do I feel?

Here I Am celebrates the wonderful diversity in our society and at the same time, explores each individual in their own right. We all may have different eyes, hair and skin, but we play the same, smile the same and laugh the same.

Here I Am invites us to consider that the way our children perceive themselves may be very different to how we see them from the outside.

This workshop was created by QPAC’s Out of the Box Festival in Brisbane.

LOO

Loo is a hot, dry wind from Asia that comes alive on summer afternoons. The show is a poetic exploration of the changes this wind can cause: moving the desert sand dunes, drying up wetlands and jungles, leaving ships buried in sandy oceans, unable to sail.

Set around the bow of a sunken boat in a sea of sand, the show uses evocative music, buried objects and stunning visual effects, to give its audience a first-hand experience of the destructive effect of this wind… and a chance to understand how and why the Loo blows.

Quote: ‘A spectacle without words, minimalist, poetic and of extraordinary beauty.’ by Reccomana.cat on Artica
