On-site at Tampines Round Market and Food Center (TRMFC)

It was the first rehearsal with Daryl, the Stage Manager, present. Haizad went through the placements of the trolleys & costumes as well as the cues in the performance that he needed to be aware of. Daryl then proceeded to spike the trolleys to ensure some consistency. He then updated the dancers about them.

Haizad then updated the dancers that they would now fold and stack the trolleys in the middle of the center segment at the end of the performance, to be part of the costume “installation”. The performers then finalised their costumes, trying and swapping around, as Ridzman and Shaw have yet to be assigned theirs. While this was happening, Hasyimah was finishing up on the costumes and accessories.

In addition, interviews by NAC & AYN were also being conducted to be used as publicity for the performances. Curiously, it was only a few days before the actual show days, and the effectiveness of conducting the video at this point was questionable.

Haizad then wanted to try Segment 2 along with the transitions before and after, which was from the 1 line, the lucky draw and Ji Ba Ban. He also wanted to add that after the “snake” in Segment 3, the trolleys would “push back” on the dancers.
