Programmes Schedule

An Exercise in Noticing
5pm-9.30pm

Presented in and around Pasir Panjang Power Station, An Exercise in Noticing leads audiences on a personal contemplative passage through a journey of Singapore literature. Rather than a linear or concise history, it unfolds like an anecdotal tapestry. Snatches of narrative, musings, sound and dialogue are installed along the alcoves and corridors of this decommissioned power station, guiding audiences in a self-paced experience to discover the hidden scenes of Singapore literature.
Presented by Cake.

Free admission. Register here for admission.

Modern: Resonance II
6pm - 7pm

The architecture of a building is not just about aesthetics, it is a narrative of time and space. In the spirit of the centenary of the Bauhaus, an influential German movement which focused on minimalism and functionality, "Modern: Resonance: ll" pays tribute to the hardware and software of a power station – its utilitarian principles and generations of workers. Join Singaporean artists Li-Chuan Chong, Deborah Emmanuel and Alecia Neo as they reawaken Pasir Panjang Power Station with music and artistic appropriation in the form of a performance.

This performance was first initiated by Goethe-Institut Singapore.

Free admission. Register here for admission.

Glorious, Monstrous, Hantu Tales from Singapore
8pm - 9.30pm

Watch as live performance, film and writing collide to mesmerising effect in a work of theatre buoyed by the voices of Singaporean writers.

With spirits and monsters, shadows and visions, fractured states of mind and displays of fantasy and haunting, this event is a psychedelic and spine-chilling dose of live-performance-meets-film, as three actors interact with a swirl of characters captured on film.

These vignettes encapsulate the most electrifying and sometimes unnerving voices in Singaporean contemporary writing, bringing to life a haunting rush of writing from novels such as Nuraliah Norasid's The Gatekeeper, Lee Jing-Jing's How We Disappeared, Sharlene Teo's Ponti, Cyril Wong's Let Me Tell You Something About That Night and O Thiam Chin's Fox Fire Girl.

Glorious, Monstrous, Hantu Tales from Singapore becomes an eerie polyphonic sensation from the darker, more monstrous, but no less glorious side of Singaporean literature.

This work was commissioned by the National Arts Council and first presented at Southbank Centre as part of London Literature Festival 2019.

*Hantu is a Malay term that refers to ghosts, especially in Malay folklore and ghost myths.
