Pro Helvetia – The Swiss Arts Council, and SIFA, Singapore International Festival of Arts, joined forces to offer a seminar aimed at up-and- coming artists in the performing arts (dance, theatre, performance). Twelve young artists from China, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Singapore, and Switzerland were given the chance to participate in a full program of discovery and encounters centered on contemporary artistic expression as presented at SIFA 2018.
The aim of the Seminar in Singapore is to provide the young stage professionals with a platform for in-depth exchanges on both practical and theoretical level. The program gave participants the opportunity to share in the discovery of a range of performances, to reflect their own practice and to discuss with some of the Festival’s guest artists and critics as well as with the Festival’s artistic director.
Stéphane Noël produced the Seminar on behalf of Pro Helvetia and its partners.
