Amarapaali - Dramatic Stage Read Presentation
Theatre Production
Avant Theatre’s Amarapali
“You can live in the world and yet not be of the world. You can live in the world and not allow the world to live in you.”
Avant is engaging audience in another of Avant Theatre’s signature presentation, Dramatic Stage Read with the story of Amarapali, which will possibly see the proscenium stage soon after receiving reactions and support on this Dramatic Stage Read performance.Constant interest creation in the performable text that might be yesteryears works but still hold relevance as an educative performance is the main objective of this play.
In trying times, we continue to educate and entertain our audience and create Tamil Theatre continuity in Singapore Arts Scene.
Amarapali in a Nutshell
The story of Amarapali is a fascinating tale from ancient Indian history and has significant relevance in today's culture. Amarapali, also known as Ambapali or Amrapali, was a renowned court dancer who lived during the time of Gautama Buddha, around the 5th century BCE.
Amarapali was born in Vaishali, an ancient city in present-day Bihar, India. She was exceptionally beautiful and possessed great charm and grace. Her beauty and talents as a dancer and singer made her extremely popular among the wealthy and influential men of her time.
Legend has it that when Buddha visited Vaishali, Amarapali offered him a grand welcome. She was deeply moved by his teachings and decided to renounce her courtesan life to become a disciple of Buddha. She chose to embrace a spiritual path and joined the Buddhist order of nuns. Ultimately, the play endeavours to trace Amrapali’s conflicts and strife as she walked towards her awakening, towards her liberation.

Thamizhisai Venthan TMS - A Tribute to
T M S
Musical Programme
The objective of this programme is to highlight Tamil songs of different genres made famous by legendary Tamil Singer T M Soundarajan (TMS). From the mid 1950s to the late 70s, TMS has sung more than 10,000 Tamil songs in over 3,000 over films. His songs resonate with millions of Tamils not just in India but all over the world. In Singapore, TMS has been a household name in South Indian homes for decades. If this great singer was alive, he would be celebrating his 100th birthday this year. ( 24 March 1923 - 23 March 2024). As such, my team is organising this concert on 2nd March 2024 as a tribute to TMS to celebrate his contribution to Tamil Language through his songs. TMS is always cited as the perfect example of a singer with impeccable pronunciation of Tamil words. Thousands of his songs
are still performed at Tamil based events across the globe. Through his songs, many Tamil learners have picked up meaningful words that can be used in speech as well as writings.
Tamil Teachers from all levels can benefit from these songs and use them as topics of discussion in the classroom. Songs rendered by TMS were written by renowned lyricists
like Kannadasan and Vaali who used simple words in their songs and have thus reached out to the masses in the 60s and the 70s. Students from the current generation are not so exposed to these songs. Through this live concert which will also go online later, my team hopes to expose evergreen Tamil songs of an exemplary singer, to students learning Tamil Language as a Mother Tongue subject in Singapore schools. Through this concert, we are also giving opportunities for veteran Singaporean Tamil singers to showcase their talent once again.
The proposed programme hopes to create a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Tamil Language through lyrical music.

7Agam Theatre LabRe SommaTheater play
Presented in Tamil with English Surtitles
Duration - Approximately 2 hours with interval
Re Somma is back! Agam is excited to bring back the The Sell-out play which was a celebration of theatre actors in Singapore, through the life of our very own extraordinary veteran actor, Re Sommasundram. Somma defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers in our Country from 70s till today.
The play traces the meteoric rise of his career through his iconic stage performances, tv acting and revolutionary radio plays. He reached unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Somma, surrounded by darker influences, had his fair share of difficulties. The play will go deep into his life that is not known publicly. His struggles and his rise. It’s the hand-off of a legacy from one generation to the next, as life imitates art and vice versa.
Re.Somma cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and theatre enthusiasts to this day. The staging of Re Somma signals our commitment to celebrate very own narratives to the Tamil audiences of the here and now. In “holding up the mirror to nature”, we are exploring ways to update and contemporize this play.

11AKT Theator LtdVillupaatuTheater play
The story we will be sharing revolves around Sang Nila Uttama, weaving together historical events and mythological elements to unveil the origins of the Lion City through captivating narrative music and songs. Villupaatu, originating from rural Tamil Nadu, has been a cherished art form since the 15th century, characterized by the use of ‘Villu’ bows and bells to create melodious tunes that accompany the storytelling.

During their presentation, Students will not only be enthralled by the storytelling prowess of our performers but also actively get engaged in a hand-on-session where they can explore the techniques of Villupaatu and even try their hand at playing the traditional instruments. We believe that this immersive experience will not only entertain but also educate students about the cultural significance of Villupaatu and its role in preserving our heritage. This session will provide a comprehensive understanding of storytelling techniques and the children can join in to design a new performance together as a group.
