Singapore Fringe Festival
2019

The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is an annual festival of theatre, dance, music, visual arts and mixed media created and presented by Singaporeans and international artists. Themed differently each year, the Festival aims to bring the best of contemporary, cutting-edge and socially engaged works to the Singapore audience.

As a democratic nation, we Singaporeans seem to be empowered with freedom: people are free to act, choose and speak. Yet, the supposed freedom is systemically curtailed by limitations enforced by the powers. As our nation progresses and the populace become increasingly educated, this highly regulated “freedom” in the nanny state polices is now rigorously being questioned.

Through the use of calligram-inspired typography and the idea of pseudo-randomness, the key visual tells a story through typography which appears seemingly random. Randomness alludes to the supposed freedom Singaporeans possess. Visuals have been arranged in a highly structured and regulated manner and visually trapping the performance image within a frame, making reference to Singapore’s highly interventional democratic policies.
