Get up-close and personal with theatre, film and “The Flying Dutchman” co-director Glen Goei at Wagner Weekend on 21 August afternoon, as he shares the vision, creative process and artistic approach behind staging Singapore’s first Wagner opera production, in a conversation “On the Wagnerian’s Couch”.
Dr. Ong Yong Lock, a retired psychiatrist, a Wagnerian and author of “Singapore On The Couch”, will moderate this lively, interactive conversation with Glen followed by an audience Q&A.
Glen Goei’s broad body of work embraces the full gamut of performing and visual arts from film, theatre, musicals, large scale shows, World Expos, dance, music to architectural design. In his artistic endeavours, his intense passion is to illustrate how art must connect with wider audiences and is a crucial pillar in the national dialogue. Underpinning this has been his constant and substantial contribution to the theatre, principally as Board Member and Associate Artistic Director of the acclaimed Singapore company W!ldRice (a non-profit company) and frequent director for the most commercially successful company Dream Academy.
