Mysteries aplenty at the three-week NUS Arts Festival
Who killed Baba Tan? That is just one of the many questions asked in the National University of Singapore's annual arts festival, which opens tomorrow.
The NUS Arts Festival this year has the theme Open Questions. It features 36 productions, ranging from dance to a murder mystery audio trail. The shows involve students as well as local and foreign artists, such as director Jeremiah Choy and noted Chinese choreographer Wang Cheng.
Baba Tan is the central character in And Then There Was One, an interactive piece of theatre inspired by an actual murder that happened on Neil Road in 1926, where the NUS Baba House is located.
Participants, armed with an mp3 player and a small storybook, explore the house and its neighbourhood for clues to solve the case. The piece is by Singapore theatre group spell#7 and NUS students.
