Glorious, Monstrous, Hantu Tales from Singapore

Watch as live performance, film and writing collide to mesmerizing 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.

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