The Vault: Leng-Geh-Mng 龍牙門
Sat 16 July 2016, 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM Singapore Standard Time Singapore Time
Revisiting the first martial arts production in Singapore theatre
Leng-Geh-Mng (“Dragon’s Tooth Gate”) is a comedy which spoofs the conventions of pugilistic films set in ancient China. This play was written by playwrights Lee Shyh Jih and Lim Poh Poh and was first staged in 1998.
After nearly two decades, Zelda Tatiana Ng revisits Leng-Geh-Mng in this Vault instalment, alongside some of the original cast members. Under Zelda's direction and treatment, Leng-Geh-Mng will be retold in the format of a radio play. The actors will read the original Mandarin text, with selected portions refreshed with translations into other Chinese dialects in an experiment with language.
Don’t miss this one-night only performance-presentation. Performed in Mandarin and other Chinese dialects, with English surtitles.
The Vault: Leng-Geh-Mng is supported by the ARTS FUND.
THE VAULT is a programme presented by Centre 42, that revisits and remembers Singapore works dating back to our early theatre years; refreshes them through the eyes of artists and collaborators; and retells them in a contemporary manner.
