ARTS FEAST: The Singapore Arts Festival kicks off on May 28 with Asian percussion, folk and tribal beats taking over Fort Canning Park. The '99 arts fest (which wraps up June 20) is shorter than last year's, although more local acts are taking the stage than in 1998. Singaporean talents to catch this year include avant-garde pianist Margaret Leng Ten, who makes music on toy pianos; Mr. Beng, a musical comedy by Drama Box; Interweave, a mixed media production by the Dance Ensemble Singapore; Henry Ong's play Fabric; and Conversation, featuring hoofers from the Singapore Dance Theatre and the Australian Ballet. Guest acts include the Afro-Cuban All-Stars, the Canadian baroque troupe Opera Atelier, the National Ballet of China and Dairakudakan, one of Japan's oldest Butoh dance companies. Young arts lovers will enjoy "Kidsfest" from May 30 to June 6, while night owls should stay up late for the Fringe Festival series of performances at Velvet Underground and Zouk. Tickets are available at tel. 65-348-5555 or at
