  • ART (2016)

    Presented by Singapore Repertory Theatre

    1 Sep - 1 Oct 2016

    National Gallery Singapore, City Hall Chamber
     

    The friendship of three men is turned upside down when one of them buys an expensive piece of modern art – a white canvas crossed by barely visible lines. Serge buys the painting but Marc hates it, and Yvan is caught in the middle between his two friends. This contemporary comedy about friendship, creativity and the complexities of human relationships has become one of the most successful plays ever written. Featuring Gerald Chew, Lim Yu-Beng and Remesh Panicker. 

    Yasmina Reza’s play, ART, premiered at the Comédie des Champs-Elysées in Paris in 1994. It was translated into English by Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons) and has since been performed around the world, winning numerous awards including the Tony Award for Best Play (USA), the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play (UK) and the Molière Award for Best Play (France). Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) staged the first production in Asia in 1998 to sold-out houses.

    This time, to give our audience a unique theatrical experience, SRT will restage ART at the National Gallery Singapore in the iconic City Hall Chamber – an experience not to be missed!

    The evening kicked off with a video greeting by George Takei, the original Sulu from Star Trek, who was “beamed in” to thank the guests for supporting SRT. As the evening progressed, the Men in Black, joined Superman, Chewbacca and a host of aliens and space heroes, who hit the dance floor till the wee hours.
     
    Other highlights of the ball included former Miss Singapore, Rachel Kum, winning the prize for Best Dressed with her risqué, alien body painted suit; while Queen Amidala and Thor lead the MasterCard table in winning Best Dressed Table for the evening.
