About SPAF - Singapore Performing Arts Festival - Drama

The 2022 Singapore Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) - ONLINE EDITION will be held from 22nd to 24th July 2022. Since the Ministry of Education and government have embraced the significance of drama as part of the education process in Singapore, there has been an increasing demand for drama activities amongst schools, parents and students. This event is specially tailored to Primary and Secondary school students in Singapore. 

SPAF Drama1  

SPAF is an Associate Member of The British and International Federation of Festivals of which Her   Majesty the Queen is Patron. By being recognised by the British and International Federation of Festivals, Singapore will join not only the 300+ festivals in the UK but also the festivals in Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the   USA. 

Preparing for and participating in a Festival involves young people in group activity and individual achievement - every skill gained in preparing for and giving a performance is a valuable life skill that will be used in job interviews, in the workplace, in leisure activities and in social and interpersonal relationships throughout life. 

Most will not make their career in the Arts but will become that educated audience who will keep the arts alive in the coming years. However, the festival movement was where many famous names began their career, including Julian Lloyd Webber, Maureen Lipman, Wayne Sleep, Dame Janet Baker, & Paul Scofield to name a few! 

SPAF DRAMA2

The adjudicator will be a practising professional who will not only make a skilled judgement but who will also seek to inspire a greater appreciation of the work being performed and remarks made in public and on the written report will evaluate and encourage the performers.

 

 

 

NEW Categories for 2022!

  • VIDEO BLOGGING (VLOG)

    Introduction of VLOG Classes from SPAF 2022 In tandem with advancing technologies, we are very excited to introduce VLOG categories! We are looking for you to produce news items (True or Devised) and present them through a style of your choosing.  Telling a story using movement and gesture to illustrate the content would be regarded as 2 skills – expressive speaking and movement.

  • JAZZ DANCE

    Introduction of SPAF DANCE from 2022 SPAF Dance – we wish to provide a simple platform to cultivate interest in dance and through our adjudication and mini master class, we are committed to promoting and advancing interests in western Jazz dance forms!

 

OTHER POPULAR Categories:   

  • Story Telling - Performance Arts (Solo and Group)

    Telling a story using movement and gesture to illustrate the content would be regarded as 2 skills – expressive speaking and movement.

    Telling a story using props/and/or costume ( e.g. illustrations from the book, puppets, or hats )would be regarded as 2 skills – expressive speaking and use of props, t
    elling a story using voice, movement and song would be regarded as 3 skills- expressive speaking, movement, and singing

    Telling a story using voice, movement, song and a musical instrument would be regarded as four skills- expressive speaking, movement, song and playing an instrument.

    The adjudicator is looking for the skills to be integrated into a fluent, structured performance.

  • Creative Writing

    Since the first SPAF in 2011, the Creative writing class has been attracting more and more entries and the standard has risen. We believe very strongly that this ties in with the study of Language and Literature and is of additional benefit to Students in both the Primary and Secondary sectors.

    Students are given absolute free choice of content, the only regulation is to adhere to the word count. The completed story is submitted to the office and then to the adjudicator before the day of the Festival – on the actual day the student may read out their story or nominate someone else to do so- this is not part of the assessment, the adjudicator has already reached his or her decision and written the reports- the idea is to share the content with the audience and so then the adjudicator’s comments are more relevant to the listeners. 

    We will be running a Creative Writing Workshop prior to this year’s festival so do join us if you wish to find out more!!

     

  • Public Speaking

    For many adults the thought of speaking in public is terrifying- it is generally recognised that the younger people are when they begin then the less likely it is that this fear follows them into their adult life. The Public Speaking Classes of S P A F are judged on both content and delivery and these are the aspects that we will be addressing in our workshop prior to the 2016 Festival in July.

    The topics are released to Festival one month before the Festival and we will share those set in previous years as a guide, so this is a workshop that we hope will prove valuable if you are interested in promoting the value of Public Speaking without fear!

 

Other Categories Offered:

  • Impromptu Speaking
  • Verse Speaking
  • Choral Speaking
  • Dramatic Monologue
  • Dramatic Duologue
  • Group Acting (Scripted / Devised)
