M1 Singapore Fringe Festival
Bringing The Best Of Arts To You

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.

Inspired by Lee Tzu Pheng's 1967 poem of the same name, the theme of the festival for 2020 is 'My Country And My People', which was banned from performance on radio without an official explanation. For three years, the festival has drawn thematically on an iconic work by a female Singapore artist. Plus, home-grown theatre company The Necessary Stage returns to the Fringe line-up after five years with Kebaya Homies, a musical romp through Singaporean Malay history and culture. It is centered on the traditional outfit of the kebaya and narrated by Aidli Mosbit and Siti Khalijah Zainal, who play perempuan-perempuan joget (dancing girls).

Audiences will also get a chance to participate in works such as A Tiny Country, in which 20 people per show will be tasked with nation-building responsibilities for a country that will experience a hostile takeover in 10 years.

On the other hand, in Secretive Thing 215, participants will be armed with just their mobile phones and headphones, are sent on a mission for a mysterious medical institute. The M1 Singapore Fringe Festival is set to be a creative center, with the twin purpose of innovation and discussion, a platform for meaningful and provocative art to engage our increasingly connected and complex world.
