Mazu Chronicles (2015)
The main artwork on the posters, postcards and covers of programme booklets featured a female dancer above the straits.
“Mazu Chronicle” was an orchestra and dance performance brought together by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and ARTS FISSION contemporary dance group. It celebrated Singapore’s golden jubilee and the historic Maritime Silk Road with performances of works written by the late local composer Mr Leong Yoon Pin and his musical proteges. It heavily featured maritime elements on stage with ships as props, and an Elder Ensemble from a local nursing home dressed as seafaring folks alongside youthful dancers from schools and dance companies.
The modern interpretations and evolution of earlier compositions demanded a blend of traditional and modern graphic treatment which inspired our collages of cast photographs and vintage maps as the key graphics in the collaterals. The main artwork on the posters, postcards and covers of programme booklets featured a female dancer above the straits, akin to the narrative use of the sea goddess Mazu overwatching the events of the play above the stage during the performance.
