Art galleries, some museums, community centres, and hotel ballrooms and function rooms were among the venues permitted to resume live performances, according to the update by National Arts Council (NAC) on its website on Wednesday. dYz世界播


This comes after the successful pilot of live performances trialled since Sept 11. dYz世界播


In a Facebook post yesterday, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Edwin Tong urged people to “go out (safely of course!) and support our artistes wholeheartedly”. dYz世界播


He said live performances are the “lifeblood of our arts and cultural sector” and they are also the most sustainable way to preserve craft and also maintain livelihoods. dYz世界播


Mr Tong said: “Over the last few weeks, I met so many artists who yearn for the stage again. It is of course about livelihoods, but to many, it is not just about that. They just want to dance, sing, act. Perform. For an audience.” dYz世界播


He added that even as live performances resume, the safety of performers and audiences remains the top priority. dYz世界播


Organisers can host up to two zones of 50 audience members per performance, with safe management measures in place. dYz世界播


There should be a safe distance of 3m between audiences and performers and all performers should maintain at least 1m distance apart from each other. dYz世界播


At any given time, a maximum of 30 performers and crew are allowed on stage and backstage, and only up to 10 of them can be unmasked. dYz世界播


From Nov 24, those watching live performances must check in to SafeEntry with the TraceTogether app or using their TraceTogether token. dYz世界播


"The widespread use of TraceTogether in these venues will allow quicker contract tracing and ringfencing of any infections," said NAC. dYz世界播


In light of the increased allowance for audiences, the Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) and Wild Rice have both added to their respective runs for Tuesdays With Morrie and An Actress Prepares. The two shows sold out quickly when tickets were first released. dYz世界播


SRT has added more shows till Dec 6 and opened up circle seats for shows from Nov 5. Wild Rice has added 40 tickets per show - a total of 920 new tickets - for An Actress Prepares, which is on from Nov 4 to Nov 22. dYz世界播


Venues managed by the People's Association can also have live performances from next month, as can museums managed by the National Heritage Board as well as those which are Museum Roundtable members dYz世界播


Resorts World Sentosa, Marina Bay Sands and tourist attractions which have been given the green light by the Singapore Tourism Board to resume operations can also have indoor live performances. dYz世界播


Live performances will also be allowed at meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (Mice) events held at the Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore Expo and the Suntec Convention Centre. dYz世界播


However, live performances are still not allowed to resume in food and beverage establishments and wedding receptions regardless of venue, said NAC. This is due to the higher likelihood of patrons mingling and talking while unmasked. dYz世界播


Venue owners can log onto the Government's Go Business platform from Nov 1 using CorpPass to confirm whether they can host an indoor live performance. dYz世界播

场馆业主可以从11月1日起使用CorpPass登录政府的Go Business平台,确认他们是否可以举办室内现场表演。dYz世界播
