25 years of history equates to 25 years of artefacts.

"From a small multifunctional room
to three rooms for each function
From small productions built by loving hands
to bigger productions made by passionate hearts
In this place we learned, we cried, we raged, we laughed.
To all things big and small.
To all spaces real and imagined
We say farewell."
- Zizi Azah

We are organising a humble festival - PASAR BYE (Goodbye Market) - to celebrate the landmark that is Telok Ayer Performing Arts Centre (TAPAC), which will no longer be our home at the end of March. So come and join us for a day of fun, and revisiting memories and nostalgia!

As the title suggests, there will be a flea market to sell our props, set, costumes and other paraphernalia including vintage posters, brochures and objets d'art. All proceeds from the festival will financially support our move to the new space at Aliwal Arts Centre. You aren't simply purchasing a piece of history, you're investing in our future!

There will be an open mic stage where artists will be singing, spinning records, reading poetry and excerpts from plays.

You can also lounge at our BlackBox where we will be screening Teater Ekamatra's past productions such as Charged, Hearth, Merah Pawana, Bilik Ahmad and Impenjarament, amongst others. This is an opportunity to catch what you've missed!

A few invited artists will also be doing exhibitions and installations in TAPAC itself. Works that celebrate Teater Ekamatra's history like Irfan Kasban's 'Set Up' will feature recycled sets from previous productions to form a model set of TAPAC.

For the little ones, we have prepared an interactive chalk mural and music room where they can jam-borree. So bring your kids along! Let them experience a part of our local history!

We hope to see you at Telok Ayer Performing Arts Centre on 23 March 2013 from 3pm-10pm!

The nearest MRT station is Tanjong Pagar, Exit G. Parking is available near Amoy Street Food Centre.


If you are interested to sell your wares, we are renting table spaces for only $25 & $35 (all proceeds go to our renovation and moving cost)

If you are interested to do a reading, sing or maybe even volunteer to help us, don't hesitate to contact us.
