Description

Stage On-Screen is an experimental undertaking by Frontier Danceland that situates the filmic translation of theatrical live performance at the intersection between archival documentation and filmmaking. Relooking live performance through the visual language of the filmic lens, the process explores the potentiality of the audio-visual medium in supporting a meaningful conveyance of the physical performance originally meant for the audiences’ live experience.

This programme features the filmic translation of two creations, 𝘜𝘯𝘭𝘰𝘀𝘬 by Low Mei Yoke (Singapore) and π˜™π˜¦ 𝘈𝘱𝘱𝘭𝘦 π˜‹π˜ͺ𝘒𝘳𝘺 by Chiew Peishan (Singapore) that were part of the live performance double bill of MILIEU 2021.

𝘜𝘯𝘭𝘰𝘀𝘬 is a reconstruction of 𝘞𝘩π˜ͺ𝘡𝘦 (2012). Rediscovering facets of identity that were once ignored or suppressed, the work explores the potentiality of one’s dark sides of the shadow self to empower and bring light to the being.

π˜™π˜¦ 𝘈𝘱𝘱𝘭𝘦 π˜‹π˜ͺ𝘒𝘳𝘺 is a response and extension of the autobiographical re-imagination of filmic work, 𝘈𝘱𝘱𝘭𝘦 π˜‹π˜ͺ𝘒𝘳𝘺 (2021). Exploring the themes of power and agency through the juxtaposition of personal history with absurdity, the work examines the compulsion to repeat traumatic memories as a paradoxical positive confrontation of the past and inquires if healing can occur coming out of the other side.
