Coming Soon: “Manifest” – A Tribute to Christina Sergeant

January 14, 2014

Manifest1Event: “Manifest” – A Tribute to Christina Sergeant
Venue: Play Den @ The Arts House
Run: 23rd – 25th Jan 2014

A diverse group of artists ranging from actors to poets to dancers to musicians will be putting together a production in tribute to the late theatre veteran Christina Sergeant.

It certainly seems like a very intriguing event and we highly recommend you get your tickets soon.

Official Synopsis:

“MANIFEST presents a plethora of colours and concepts through 15 independent pieces based on the poems of Michael Corbidge, Cyril Wong and Terry Jaensch. The pieces vary from themes of love and questions about life to just entertaining with pure dance and singing. Many of the poems used have a relationship to Tina. An example would be Lost in a Photograph which Tina performed a solo mime piece for Jayanthi’s production of Isolate in 2004. This poem will be inspired by Tina’s 2004 performance but presented using contemporary dance. We are applying Anne Borgarts View Points to devise another piece called Four Sides to A Ring which was the name and part of a production that Tina directed and performed in with Jayanthi, in 2002.

To celebrate Tina and how she touched so many people in the Arts, Sean Tobin, Head of the Theatre Faculty at SOTA, and Audrey Wong , Ex NMP and ‎current Programme Leader, MA Arts & Cultural Management at LaSalle College of the Arts, will be doing short speeches on different nights.”
