Writers’ Guild Anthology ‘19: Look Upon the Past (Perfect)

By Wong Zi Yang (19A01D) and Tay Jing Xuan (20S03C)

“You’ll be fine!” Chester (19A01C) assured Rachel (19S07C) as she did one last recital of her lines. The hour leading up to the Writers’ Guild Anthology Launch was charged with an atmosphere of anticipation and anxiety. Shuffling around fixing their boards, doing sound tests, and practising their lines one final time, each member was acutely aware of the fact that almost half a year of hard work (and sometimes procrastination) would cumulate in these two hours. The result was one 266-page anthology, themed “Past Perfect”.

There was no better way to end off a long school week than to attend Spark 2019, a concert organized by Raffles Community Advocates (CA) that aimed to raise awareness of the Deaf community in Singapore. Promising a night of music, dance and theatre, the concert hopes to spark a positive change in attitudes towards the Deaf by bridging the gap between the hearing community and the Deaf community.

Held at Dhoby Ghaut’s Visual Arts Centre, 50by50 was an exhibition of works created by members of the Raffles Photographic Society (RPS). The Year 6s were given a box measuring 50 cm by 50 cm – hence the name of the exhibition – to merge their photography with. In their words, “To make truly great art, one must think outside the box. (…) What creative challenge – or opportunity – does the box present? Does the box restrict, provide structure, or take on a completely unexpected meaning? Is the box simply a frame or can it add to or enhance the photograph?”

Last Friday night saw the PAC festooned with clapper board paraphernalia, pamphlets and balloons. Film Society members strategically assembled behind their front of house in anticipation of the audience slowly trickling into the Performing Arts Centre (PAC).

Whilst most events held within the PAC present for the stage, this particular one prepped for the big screen. Rewind IV: Final Cuts brightened the place with balloons, film posters, and even a special polaroid booth for a night of film screenings – not your average Hollywood blockbuster, but films produced entirely by the members of Film Society.
