Voices of the Amazon | 28-29 Jul 2017

 
Voices of the Amazon to make Asia debut
14 dancers, singers and musicians pay tribute to the beauty of the natural world and highlight the damaging effects of de-forestation.
 
Singapore, April 11, 2017 – Base Entertainment Asia and Sisters Grimm present a passionate dance musical, Voices of the Amazon, which explores rainforest development to show the importance of preserving the unique ecosystem of the Amazon rainforest whilst embracing the true spirit of Brazil at the Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands. 

Voices of the Amazon will be making its Asian premiere in Singapore and tickets are now on sale. 

Set amidst the Brazilian rainforest, Voices of the Amazon follows Beleza, a water spirit, whose quest to cure her dying sister leads her into the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. To her shock and dismay, she discovers the forest is no longer as abundant in plants and natural medicines.  

The show features a fusion of ballet, contemporary dance and capoeira and a sensational musical score containing sounds recorded from the Amazon rainforest, with music and songs performed in English and Portuguese. The show aims to highlight the damaging effects of deforestation, the loss of natural medicines and plants and the importance of sustainability.  

Voices of the Amazon director Pietra Mello-Pittman and composer Ella Spira said, “We are so excited and it is such a great honour!  This is the first time we have taken a show to Asia and it will be the Asian premiere for Voices of the Amazon. Singapore has a particular resonance with the show due to the primary rainforest within the city.” 

Singapore is one of the only two cities in the world with a sizeable area of primary rainforests within its built-up area. Though the nature areas may not be large, it offers medicinal properties, home to a variety of flora and fauna, is part of its natural heritage, an escape for its people to relax and serves as a water catchment area and hence, should be protected and restored.

Chief executive officer of Base Entertainment Asia Chantal Prudhomme said, “Though sustainable development in Singapore took root long before conservation became fashionable, the city-state is becoming an urban landscape where trees, rainforests and natural scenes have been replaced by buildings. With a show like Voices of the Amazon, audiences’ attention will be drawn to the importance of respecting the environment and learn the lessons that rainforests hold for the city as it aims to grow sustainably.”

Voices of the Amazon has been choreographed by Helen Pickett, in collaboration with Brazilian songwriters Danny Nascimento, Dito Martins and Julien Davis and percussionists Olodum. The show has lighting designed by Ben Cracknell, stage and costume designed by Temple Clark and sound designed by Adrian Rhodes. World Wildlife Fund, EDEN and Alexander Van Tulleken will provide scientific consultation. 

Theater, film and television actor Jeremy Irons, who has also done extensive voice work, will be lending his voice to the Voices of the Amazon in a pre-recorded narration. Irons has one of the most varied international film careers, going beyond the expected costume dramas to offer award-winning performances as men of all eras and motives.

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - KOOZA!! | 13 Jul - 20 Aug 2017




Cirque du Soleil returns to Singapore with an awe-inspiring production presented in the intimate setting of the blue and yellow Big Top. Seen by over 7 million people around the world, KOOZA pays homage to Cirque du Soleil's roots by combining thrilling, heart-stopping acrobatic performance with the art of clowning.

The name KOOZA is inspired by the Sanskrit word "Koza" which means "box", "chest", or "treasure" and emerging from this magical box is an international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from 19 different countries performing physically astonishing feats and laugh-out-loud antics to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats.

The KOOZA story follows "The Innocent" who represents the child within us all, as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and out-of-the-box surprises. Presented in a colorful medley.
