Review: Arts House House Party
The Arts House’s annual celebration of all things artsy returns this weekend for another insane party highlighting literary expression across genres by various local artists.
One of today’s highlights had to be Note For Note, a poetry based performance where various local poets performed poems alongside local musicians providing accompanying music. With both local literary giants such as Yong Shu Hoong, Pooja Nansi and Marc Nair alongside the most creative musicians such as Bani Haykal, it was a night to remember and the music worked to emphasise and bring out the subtle nuances of the spoken word even more.
Also of note would be photography exhibition Pet Me, Pet Me, Look At Me, Love Me by Liana Yang and Lavender Chang, whose works explore notions of intimacy and longing in the written word. Alongside the exhibition itself, there’s plenty of dialogues and workshops held in conjunction, from a conversation around food and memory, to a dialogue session with esteemed writers such as You Jin and O Thiam Chin.
For the literary inclined, the Arts House’s House Party is an event not to be missed, with a multitude of exciting activities running all weekend. Head on down and expand your horizons, and enjoy a day of supporting and celebrating the local arts in a beautiful venue.
House Party runs from 10am – 10pm tomorrow, 26 March at the Arts House. For more information and registration for certain events, check out their website here
