What do illegal parking, invented languages, and ethical dilemmas all have in common? Superficially speaking, absolutely nothing. And yet, plays featuring these three completely unrelated subjects were a part of Raffles Players’ J1 Production: One-Two-Many, held at the Theatre Studies and Drama Room from 9–11 November.

When the word “artist” is mentioned in a casual conversation, images of a beret-donning, mediocrity-fearing, sketchbook-carrying creative inevitably spring to mind. This creative is believed to be living in a dream world, and he only hangs out with his fellow creatives who lead decadent lifestyles.
But this depiction of the “artist” as an exclusive, pretentious creative is far from accurate. It does not even come close to describing the artists that make up the H2 Art Batch of 2018 in Raffles. When I entered the Art Studio on Friday, 27th October, I was warmly greeted by passionate art students who were eager to take me through their works.

You may have heard of them from their Instagram account, from their posters around school, or by word of mouth. You may have even attended their last show in January. Yes, the lively presence of the Broadway Babies was certainly hard to miss last Wednesday at the Hodge Lodge, where a new batch of members held their very first show.
You might remember their enthusiastic spin-off rendition of the song Roxie during morning assembly, or seen the lines of poetry chalked along the walls. That’s right – Lit Week is back once again. This annual event aims to celebrate Literature as a subject, and this year’s lineup of fun programmes was free for both Literature students and non-Literature students to enjoy.

Last Friday, months of back-breaking hard work and careful planning came to fruition for Raffles Film Society. Their showcase, Rewind V: Façade,featured thesis films by the graduating batch, as well as short, sharp vignettes by the Year 5s. Despite the variety of themes explored in the films, Façade did not fail to enthral the enthusiastic audience gathered in the PAC.
