Film Screenings of Un Ballo in Maschera and Odile & Odette by Yinka Shonibare CBE



As an accompaniment to Justice for All, the Asian Art Institutum will also be screening two films by Yinka Shonibare. The first film, Un Ballo in Maschera (2004), reframes the story from Giuseppe Verdi’s opera of the same title, which explores the assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden in 1792, through the medium of dance. The second film, Odile & Odette (2005), was made in collaboration with the Royal Opera House, and re-imagines a classical episode from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, where the lead roles Odile and Odette engage in a close dialogue of gestures and movement.

This programme is as part of

Over two weekends, The Arts House invites you to celebrate, share and enjoy stories from Singapore and beyond. In conjunction with the Light to Night Festival, this year's Prologue will turn this historic space into an intimate gathering of words through multidisciplinary performances, installations, and interactive activities. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, embark on a journey away from the bustle of the Civic District through urban landscapes of cities new and old, past and present, real and imagined.
