WHY ARE WE HERE?

What do you miss the most from the pre-COVID times? For many international artists whose regions have been influenced by the pandemic, the estrangement between people feels deepened than ever since the in-person performances and gigs are being canceled and postponed. You may feel stuck at the current stage with no place to showcase your works and you may desire the quality communications with artists who are sharing your emotions. Therefore, the B·O·N·D International Virtual Live Performance Festival is born. It aims to bring works from creators like you to broader audiences from all around the world; It also enables audiences to enjoy these performances while staying at home.

Via this performance festival, we encourage you to reconceptualize the meanings of dimensions and virtuality, as well as rethink the essence of arts via online technologies. All disciplines of artworks are welcomed - whether they belong to traditional theatre art genres like play, opera, musical, improvisational theatre, physical theatre, dance theatre, puppetry, or it experiments with live cinema, performance art, and interactive installation art. With the social-distancing now being our new norm of life, we want to provide access and inspiration for crossing the boundaries of creating and viewing arts. We will also hold different events, including panel talks, round-table talks, and workshops throughout the festival.

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.

FREE BRAINSTORMING/STRATEGY CONSULTATION FOR ARTISTS AND ORGS

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Are you starting to think about post-pandemic artistic plans? Are you attempting to chart a path forward, but feeling alone in that process? Are you simply overwhelmed, discouraged in this unjust, tumultuous time? We all are. Perhaps we can help.

Super Secret Arts Advisory is a boutique strategy firm that offers tailored solutions and unique ideas to the big picture questions that forward-thinking artists, creatives and organizations face today. And right now, we all could use a helping hand. Think of us as the secret weapon in your artistic toolbox. Just in the last few months, during this period of societal crisis, we’ve:

  • helped a talented choreographer find balance and satisfaction between disparate parts of a developing career. -helped a promising artist break free from the 9-to-5 grind and craft a future centered around their art-making.
  • guided a young artist in taking the first steps towards artistic independence and organizational structure.
  • and much more.

Here’s what a few folks have said about working with Toby:

  • “I highly recommend Toby to anyone looking for help finding direction of the future of their artistic endeavors."
  • "The way he talked about longevity and sustainability made it easier to compartmentalize actionable steps I can take today. . .and ways to make those moves matter for me in the future as an artist."
  • "My conversations with Toby made me feel supported and confident in my steps going forward."

Does any of this ring true for you? Set up a free consultation, and let's talk. During the 30 to 40 minute initial consultation, you’ll discuss your artistic journey and background, where you stand right now, and where you are looking to go in the future. Then, we'll make a plan for working together. As each of our artistic identities are unique, a collaboration with Super Secret Arts Advisory is catered to your specific situation and needs.

Get in touch, and be well.
