ArtsCura is the Grant Administrator for the Flight of the Jade Bird.
The Flight of the Jade Bird
is a newly commissioned work for the 2012 Singapore Arts Festival,
created by Mark Chan. Part concert, part opera, part story-telling this
musical treat tightly interwoven with dance features a galaxy of stars
from Singapore and Hong Kong. Performances were held on 18th and 19th May
2012 at the Esplanade Concert Hall.
The Arts Creation Fund (ACF) is a new initiative by the National Arts
Council in Singapore, that provides artists with resources to support
artistic works in the germination phase. ArtsCura administered the ACF
grant awarded to Mark Chan in 2010 that enabled the research, writing
and composition that led to creation of The Flight of the Jade Bird.
