One word: Amazing!
I was the only delegate from Singapore but I am glad Singapore was represented in this festival.
I didn’t know what to expect… All the delegates paraded from about 50m away from the theatre. Two rows of ladies in traditional costumes welcome us. I saw and heard them saying “Singapore”. They were excited when I wave to them. Being treated like a star feels good!
When we reached the end of the welcome team, there were array of performers showing their stuff; marching bands, children dancing, acrobatics, REALLY young children on unicycle performing, etc. The children are trained very well in their arts.
We were treated to an emotional performance by the local dance, traditional instruments and choir troupe. It was sharp. I realised how organised and professional the Koreans in handling the sequencing, the pace, and logistic and change over.
