Performance & Exhibition. 27 May – 4 June. 2022 Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA)
Where has your body been? Where has it walked, what has it touched, what has it experienced? We shed a cumulative of 200 million skin cells every day, leaving invisible yet tangible footprints of our DNA throughout the material world. These worn clothes and used chairs, carrying trace elements of all the people that have ever inhabited them, are what sets the stage for our twilight festival. oneirism Rituals awakens energy and life in Aliwal Arts Centre by gathering up these forgotten pieces and celebrating the things oft taken for granted.
oneirism-Rituals at Aliwal Arts Centre are imbued with the richness of contemporary live performance expression, evoking the ceremonies and rituals drawn from Southeast Asian culture, and inspiring us all to rediscover the magic hidden in everyday mundanity.
