Meet the faces of Operation Theatre 5!
22 August 2014

This epic musical will be performed on 19th and 20th September, 7pm, at the Kallang Theatre. Proceeds will go to HCA Hospice Care.

Created from scratch and performed by the NUS Medical Society, Atlas Unbound is an epic musical set in an otherworldly land – a thrilling journey with its hero as he discovers the truth of his world and its history.

The musical is the fifth edition of the medical students’ biennale production Operation Theatre (OT5), which is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for different sectors of the community.

This year, HCA Hospice Care is fortunate to be OT5’s beneficiary. We bring you the key leaders in their team: Alex (OT5 Head), Jing Yuan (Dance Head), Magdalene (Costumes Head), and Ben (Music Head).

THE OT5 CAST, MID-WAY THROUGH THEIR REHEARSAL.

Q: Tell us about your team.

A: There are members from all years – everyone coming together contributing their talents is the most beautiful part of us working together.

JY: My team of dancers is united by the vision, ‘To move, to dance, to inspire’. We want to put up a spectacular performance that will touch the hearts of our audiences.

B: We are all passionate musicians with varying musical backgrounds. It is our common goal that, with our music, the drama on stage will thoroughly captivate our audience.

THE MUSICIANS, PRACTISING THE ORIGINAL SCORES WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE MUSICAL.

Q: Why did you select HCA Hospice care as your beneficiary?

A: Palliative care and death is still a very much taboo topic in our country. I wanted to bring more awareness and discussion to such a topic.

M: In our palliative care attachment, we’ve seen how HCA provides medical, financial, social and spiritual support to patients and their families.

JY: We medical students tend to forget to look beyond the hospital and to recognise the obstacles that patients face at home. HCA addresses these problems.

THE MULTI-TALENTED CAST SING, DANCE, AND ACT THEIR WAY THROUGH THE MUSICAL.

Q: What does OT5 mean to you?

M: OT5 utilises artistic talents and develops creative sides. Most importantly, the knowledge that we are putting up this production for HCA is an impetus that drives us to work with persistence and enthusiasm.

JY: To me, being part of a production that is aimed at helping the less fortunate is really meaningful and fulfilling.

B: OT5 has given me the opportunity to create music that will be performed to the public – and music is nothing if not performed. Knowing that we will be raising funds for charity gives me a unique sense of fulfillment: I can do what I most love – writing and performing music – for a higher cause.
