Emily@Home Digital Arts Project





Emily@Home OPEN CALL for Video Submissions

Emily@Home Digital Arts Project, an open call for video submissions from the public based on passages from ’Emily of Emerald Hill’, the critically acclaimed monologue in Singapore since 1982.    This monodrama, written by well-known Stella Kon, who is a playwright, novelist, short-story writer and poet, has been performed locally as well as internationally.

Emily@Home is supported by the National Arts Council’s Digital Presentation Grant for the Arts, as part of the #SGCultureAnywhere campaign to bring together the best of Singapore’s arts and culture digital offerings to be enjoyed and experienced, anytime and anywhere.

It is open to all participants from all over the world to channel their inner artist and express themselves freely by showcasing their own interpretation and portrayal of Emily with one or more recorded videos of their acting, based on 5 iconic passages from Emily of Emerald Hill.

Participants regardless of age, gender, race, culture or acting experience can take this opportunity to unleash their creativity with their most innovative and unique interpretation of Emily.

Emily@Home seeks to encourage critical thinking and open-mindedness when it comes to expression especially during this Covid-19 where everyone has to stay home as much as possible.

As an academic textbook too, this project allows students to explore deeper into the story and character.  Emily@Home also hopes to continue to engage, encourage and support aspiring actors or theatre practitioners to hone their acting skills, to create some fun at home as well as to generate interest in Singapore culture around the world.

Participants are encouraged to delve into the psyche of a woman, a mother, a wife and a daughter better, and how these same traits or characteristics apply to them. 

These videos will be curated and uploaded to Emily@Home’s social media platforms on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok and Instagram where members of the public can share their comments.

Previous directors of ‘Emily of Emerald Hill’ such as Glen Goei, Jeremiah Choy and well-known actors such as Margaret Chan, Pearlly Chua and Ivan Heng, who have played the role of Emily, together with playwright Stella Kon will be the panel of Creative Collaborators for this project.

Bioenergetics for Artists - Body-Emotional Release



This is an unique training that combines Bioenergetics Analysis with Body Awareness exercises, bringing together the pleasure of releasing stress, anxiety and tension while uncovering hidden emotions through life stories and images. 

Bioenergetics Therapy combines psychic and somatic principles, understanding personality in terms of body and energy.

The work is mainly practical and it’s proven to be effective online as well.

We will go over these topics and discuss them particularly with each participant: 

Personal motivation/passion/blocks






“Being conscious of your own body is one of the principles of Bioenergetics because only this way it is possible for you to know who you are, in other words, for you to know your own mind”. (A. Lowen)

OPEN CALL TO ACTORS: [INSERT FEELING HERE] immersive art experience




OPEN CALL TO ACTORS: Looking for actors to collaborate on a unique immersive art exhibition for two nights only on 26 & 27 February in the Old Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey.

The performance is part of a unique immersive art exhibition [INSERT FEELING HERE], an artist reflection on chasing our own emotions, the highs and the lows and making space for everything in between. The aim of the event is to make people feel and experience art becoming part of the creation process rather than observers. The audience will dive into the minds of 11 artists and get immersed into their practice.

We are looking for the following:

- Actors to encourage the audience to interact with immersions and ensure the flow of people from one immersion to the other.
- Actors to act as nurses in a lab room immersion designed to make the audience reflect on emotions, the brain and art
- An actor to impersonate Sigmund Freud in an immersion designed to make the audience reflect on how they feel

There will be a lot of scope for self expression and co-creation as part of the project.
