Description

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.


新加坡剧场史上第一部华文武‘邪’剧

龍牙門是仿嘲当代武侠电影的一部古装武侠舞台喜剧。此剧也凑巧地反映了当时许多头条及社会现状,让观众留下深刻的印象。此剧在1998首演,编剧为李世炬和林宝宝。

让颜橦带你重访‘龙牙门客栈’,‘听一听’当年的这部耗资八万元的制作。演读将以多种方言及‘广播剧’的形式呈献。

千万别错过这‘仅此一晚’的演读!呈献付英文字幕。


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.
