We’re never short of interesting festivals and events here in Singapore, but here’s one celebration which you should not miss out on. Happening on 22 to 25 March, the True Colours Festival is the first Asia Pacific performing arts festival which also celebrates the achievements of global artistes and performing talents with disabilities. There’s plenty to look forward to, with over 15 performances featuring more than 150 performers, including Singaporean pianist Dr Azariah Tan, violinist Adrian Anantawan, the Drake Music Scotland’s Digital Orchestra, dancers Kazuyo Morita & Natsumi Sadayuki, and dance crew Redeafination.
You can catch them performing at the Singapore Indoor Stadium and OCBC Square, which also houses the free-admission True Colours Festival Village – look forward to interactive experiences, theatre shows and artworks for sale, plus food and drinks!
Also part of the festival is the Arts & Disability International Conference, where artists, educators and policy makers gather to attend keynote speeches and panel discussions on the performing arts industry. Workshops are also available, exploring topics such as digital music and experiential art, and how we can help to build inclusivity in society.
