APRIL 2019 FULL PERFORMANCE 1 | ArtScience Late: The Latecomers

ArtScience Late: The Latecomers
18 April 2019, Thursday | 8pm & 9pm

A tongue-in-cheek response to Wonderland, a playful interactive exhibition based on Lewis Carroll’s timeless stories of Alice and her adventures at ArtScience Museum, The Latecomers are here with an invitation to tumble down the rabbit hole. Come prepared to have your suggestions and stories spun into a series of spontaneous, fantastical scenes – all with a Wonderland twist!

A regular in the Singapore comedy circuit, The Latecomers are an improvisational comedy troupe formed by a group of friends from different nationalities, backgrounds and personalities. Founded in 2014, they create songs, sketches and memorable characters on the spot, based on suggestions from the audience and their own wondrous minds.

The Latecomers were the first improv group to perform at the Singapore Comedy Fringe in 2017 and have performed in festivals in Shanghai, Manila, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, as well at the Singapore Night Festival. They are the winner of the 2016 Singapore Improv Festival Competition.

This edition of ArtScience Late is programmed in celebration of Wonderland.

About Wonderland at ArtScience Museum

This one-of-a-kind exhibition follows Alice’s journey through popular culture and invites you to take a trip through the looking glass into an enchanted world where expectations are upended and curiosity is rewarded. Using theatrical sets, bold, interactive environments, eye-catching props and amazing audiovisual artworks, Wonderland spectacularly conjures up the surprising and magical world of Alice and her adventures.

Discover how artists and filmmakers have portrayed Alice and her story for over a century. Since her first appearance on the page in 1865, Alice has delighted audiences in more than 40 films and over 30 television programmes, and has become a subcultural icon through her presence in music videos, video games, high fashion, advertising and more. Drawing together a remarkable selection of original behind-the-scenes material, Wonderland includes over 300 artefacts and objects including first edition books, drawings, original costumes, films, magic lantern projectors, animation and puppetry.

Developed by Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), this ground-breaking exhibition makes the first stop of its global tour at ArtScience Museum.
