M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2019: Still Waters

M1 is proud to present the 15th edition of the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2019—an assemblage of breathtaking and thought-provoking works encapsulating this year’s theme, Still Waters.

Water can be our greatest friend or foe. It sustains lives and calms our senses, and yet, it can quickly morph into a tsunami and cause massive destruction. It is our most critical resource, as well as our weakest link. We can simply turn on taps for pure drinking water, yet the long-term dependency on our neighbouring country for a sizeable chunk of our water supply continues to place us in a fragile position.

On a global scale, water is highly limited and its supply under severe stress in many parts of the world, so much so that we get extremely excited at a mere hint of existence of water in other planets, such as Mars.


Water can also be deeply personal. Rain can bring joy to a farmer, sadness to a broken-hearted girl or nostalgia to an aged person. As Bruce Lee once said, “Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

Join us at the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2019 from 16 to 27 January 2019, Still Waters promises to keep you submerged in suspense with 13 scintillating events from six countries.

How do you stay afloat in troubled waters?
