Murder At Mandai Camp by local theatre company Sight Lines Entertainment is a digital theatrical production that will run for three nights only across 26 to 28 June 2020 at 10.00pm.
Written and directed by the award-winning Chong Tze Chien and Erwin Shah Ismail, Bright Ong & Irsyad Dawood, Murder At Mandai Camp will be Singapore’s first interactive live performance on video-telephony platform Zoom that draws inspiration from army myths and urban legends around National Service.
Murder At Mandai Camp will explore the online conferencing medium and will combine physical props of the traditional stage with modern day film production techniques to create an alternative reality that exudes a chilling atmosphere for the rooms of which the actors will perform against.
This online production costs S$15 (excluding booking fees) per audience-participant; participants are also encouraged to contribute more in a Pay-As-You-Wish model to support local arts production. Sight Lines Entertainment has also collaborated with newly-launched cocktail bar Laut to offer cocktails and amp up this theatrical encounter at home. Modern gastrobar Laut is inspired by Southeast Asia’s seafaring heritage with a focus on locally sourced produce. Its cocktails combine local and regional ingredients with innovative mixology techniques to good effect.
Two cocktails have been specially curated for this event. One is Dragonfruit, which uses Straits spiced vodka, smoked longan, sour plum cordial and red dragonfruit juice. The other is Grass, a tipple that combines Rojak Gin from local distillery Compendium, toasted rice vinegar, pickle brine and grass kombucha. The cocktails are specially priced at $38 (usually S$48) each, inclusive of delivery; each 250ml bottle serves 2-3 pours.
Tickets for Murder At Mandai Camp will be available to audiences ages 18 and above. Tickets (from $15) and Laut cocktails will be available on SISTIC (link here) from 8 June 2020, 12.00pm till 26 June 2020, 6.00pm.
