Title: Provisional solutions for Arrhythmia in the arts

In 2019, I ran workshops titled “Dramaturgy of Production” among Southeast Asian and Singaporean artists to string key domains in practice-based research and artistic production together into a cogent process. The complex terrain of artistic research and production that was already difficult to navigate has been exacerbated by the pandemic. 2020 and 2021 have required urgent review of the arts’ raison d’être and experimentation in modes of operation. In Singapore, a confluence of other factors — all somewhat linked to COVID — such as new arts grants to buttress artistic production, a series of local arts organisations/companies in transition, questions on arts housing and funding frameworks, disruption to NAC’s arts plan (expectations for a new arts plan in 2022), etc., has meant that it is now an extremely opportune moment to re-map the “dramaturgy of production”. I will briefly outline five initiatives that I have been working on as artistic director of Dance Nucleus, an ‘arts intermediary’ that supports artistic and creative development in contemporary performance in Singapore, and as an independent artist. These initiatives are concrete examples of my attempts at
proposing solutions to the disconnections and disruptions in the arts ecology.
