As part of M1’s Fringe Festival, Australia’s Edith Podesta will be working with NAFA to present “Kaspar”.
The 2019 edition of M1 Fringe Festival will start on 16 January and end on 27 January. The 12-day event will showcase works of different fields and forms, including seven world premieres or inaugural exhibitions, four which are first in Asia, and amidst them, seven of them are specially commissioned by M1 Fringe Festival. The theme for this year’s festival is “Still Waters”, a seminal work by ground-breaking Australia-based Singaporean artist Suzann Victor in response to the ban on performance art from 1994 to 2004. With “Still Waters” as the theme, Fringe Festival pays tribute to the performance art and to the spirit of exploration. Through this Festival, Suzann engages in conversation with Fringe artistic director Sean Tobin to discuss issues of aesthetics, body politics and space, and the contentiousness of art-making.
The Festival’s Live Fringe segment features seven programmes, including a theatre-lecture “New Perspectives” by UK group A Fortunate Man; Israel’s Rachel Erdos and Dancers will be presenting “Q&A”; UK’s Unholy Mess will be presenting “Above the Mealy-Mouthed Sea”, and Australia’s Edith Podesta will be working with Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts to present “Kaspar”.
