Open Call – Sound Plot: True/South, A Collection of Audio Plays
October 16 @ 12:00 pm - October 31 @ 12:00 pm
As part of Singapore Art Week 2024, the Singapore Art Museum and Centre 42 are commissioning and producing a collection of original audio plays written in response to the geographical area of Tanjong Pagar/Pasir Panjang where the museum currently resides.
This is an invitation for two writers to respond through audio drama to this fascinating area, guided by the curatorial prompt “True/South”. Selected writers will need to be available for an intensive script development phase in November 2023, and will work with a director during the recording and production process in December 2023. Audio production is done in collaboration with Artwave Studio.
From 19 – 28 Jan 2024, the Singapore Art Museum will host these audio plays in their premises. Each play will have an audio spot installation inviting visitors to plug in to a world of audio drama, connecting their physical site to imagined fictions and histories of adjacent sites.
This is a paid opportunity, and commissioned writers will receive $1,000 each.
