The Arts House celebrates its 10th anniversary next month with a series of interactive events to engage the public in different ways over a two-week period.

The anchor show, announced at a media conference on Monday, will be an immersive visual and performance installation show. Titled The Next Page and directed by Chong Tze Chien of The Finger Players, it reinterprets the spaces of The Arts House, transforming the building into a dance club, a five-star boutique hotel and a bookstore.

During the show, which runs nightly from March 27 to 30, the audience will walk through a tour given by four "historians", before listening to an accountt by a cleaner and eavesdropping on a conversation by a couple trying to salvage their marriage.

The audience can then visit the dance hall, set in the former Parliamentary Chamber. There will also be a literary maze, where visitors are invited to write their favourite literary quotes on the white walls.
