Bunga Sayang (National Day Observance Ceremony 2021)
Proudly performed at the “hybrid” MINDEF National Day Observance Ceremony 2021, the Music & Drama Company takes viewers on a musical journey with this classic tune, “Bunga Sayang”, which means “Flower of Love, or Flower of the Heart” in Malay.
The full musical drama was filmed black box theatre style at SDE’s Soundstage 3 @ Infinite Studios, using lighting effects, camera and editing techniques to add depth to the storytelling.
Eight live-streamed shows in two languages, featuring studio operations, professional presenters and a multi-camera set-up at Changi Exhibition Centre, all to be ready with a week’s notice. So Drama! Entertainment delivered as expected and brought the SA2020 aerial displays to your screens as the nation deliberated over strengthening COVID-19 measures in Feb 2020. With the help of our broadcast partners, the shows were also made available to regional broadcasters, reaching audiences beyond our shores.
The Music & Drama Company (MDC) staged an enthralling show for defence officials from overseas at the 12th ASEAN Defence Ministers Meeting-Plus Gala Dinner. Featuring professional dancers and singers, MDC also added a unique dimension to the show with an interactive dance performance using Intel RealSense Cameras, which captured and mirrored the movements of dancers on the screen.
