BEYOND A CHAMBER THAT EXTERNALISES ALL THE TIME, or Séance


Three characters grow restless in a city where the urban trappings of identity and history are idealised and left unquestioned. They converge, only to entertain the notion of self-exile. In this volatile search for another reality, a strange and otherworldly theatre of their making begins to actualise. Set in Singapore’s protective yet fragmented environment, the country’s inherent archipelagic nature speaks to the elliptical and the absurd. A vapour of anonymity and madness, once in undertow, gently resurfaces.
