Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts 华艺节

Huayi showcases the works of outstanding Chinese artists of all genres, be they traditional or contemporary, mainstream or cutting-edge, by providing them with a platform on which they can present their works to international audiences in Singapore.

With this goal, we sow the seeds for what we hope will become an internationally recognised arts festival that represents the Chinese diaspora. Huayi provides audiences with a taste of some of the most dynamic forms of Chinese artistic expression. It introduces our audiences to works that reveal the unique individual voices of Chinese artists and allows audiences to reflect on different perspectives and interpretations of what it means to be Chinese.

Today, Huayi has grown into one of the most warmly embraced arts festivals in Singapore and is a significant part of the Singapore's Chinese New Year festivities. Spread over 10 days, Huayi inspires and touches audiences through a diverse showcase of ticketed and non-ticketed programmes across various art forms including theatre, dance, music, visual arts and more.

Huayi will be held from the 15th - 24th February 2013. Programme details available tomorrow.
