Voilah! 2019: Introducing Janice Koh as Festival Patron

In addition to the partners, Voilah! is proud to announce the veteran stage and screen actress, Janice Koh as this year’s patron for the festival. Well-loved by local theatre and television audiences as well as fans of the blockbuster film Crazy Rich Asians, Janice has also starred in The Reunification of the Two Koreas, a 2018 co-production between TheatreWorks Singapore and the Centre Dramatique National de Tours. The acclaimed play written by French playwright Joel Pommerat was directed by French director Jacques Vincey, and played to audiences in both Singapore and France. 

Janice says, “Having had the privilege of working in a production that involved both Singaporean and French partners, I have personally experienced how cultural collaboration can provide valuable platforms for dialogue and exchange, and ultimately help in bridging different communities. I look forward to the exciting programmes that have been put together for Voilah! 2019, and hope it will encourage more creative and synergistic partnerships, while celebrating the best of France and Singapore.”

Voilah! is supported by a close to 100 institutions, including the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, the Singapore Tourism Board, the Land Transport Authority and the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore to transform the festival into an important fixture of Singapore’s events calendar, reaching audiences beyond Singapore to the rest of the region.
