SeptFest 2021: In The Margins

Upon announcing plans of a potentially bittersweet departure from Armenian Street, The Substation which was founded in 1990 by Kuo Pao Kun, and regarded the first building under the National Arts Council’s “Arts Housing Scheme”, will host its annual arts festival SeptFest, for the last time, after a six-year hiatus. 

Held every September in commemoration of the venue’s long standing impact on Singaporean Arts and Culture, the month-long festival was initially scheduled for a comeback in September 2020 but later postponed due to an unprecedented global health crisis. Finally returning for its 22nd edition from 4th to 28th March 2021, the event will encompass a total of 11 productions and two exhibitions over four weekends.

The 2021 SeptFest aims to highlight stories of the marginalized, and the ephemerality of spaces, showcasing work by writer Alfian Sa’at, musician Subhas Nair, multi-disciplinary artist Zai Kuning, cross-disciplinary artist Lim Chin Huat, and artist-curator Zulkhairi Zulkiflee. Complete with a variety of ticketed and free-for-all art exhibitions, music performances, film screenings, and theatre shows, this experience marks the last opportunity for theatre buffs and bibliophiles to witness the Substation in its most original and authentic state. Available now for sale online, the 2021 SeptFest will feature the ‘Migrant Workers Community Museum’, ‘Brown Is Haram’ and ‘The Last Chapter’, for an immersive experience to rediscover the various facets of The Substation including the people, histories, stories and even ghosts that housed themselves in the arts centre.

The 2021 SeptFest will commence on 4th March at 45 Armenian St, Singapore 179936, from 6:30pm to 10pm.
