My Grandfather’s Road
was first presented in 2015 as an English- language monologue, a photo exhibition and a book. It was conceived and written by Neo Kim Seng as a way of reconnecting with childhood memories of living on Neo Pee Teck Lane, which was named after his paternal grandfather. In 2017, Kim Seng revisits the text of My Grandfather’s Road, refreshing it in the spoken language of his childhood – Cantonese. He also explores the Cantonese as spoken on both sides of the Causeway. There will be two versions of The Vault: My Grandfather’s Road – one in Singaporean Cantonese performed by Gary Tang, and one in Malaysian Cantonese performed by Tan Cher Kian. Both versions will be presented with English surtitles.

《我阿公的路》在2015年以英语单人剧,摄影展和书籍的形式首次呈现。作者梁金成借此回顾了在梁丕德巷所度过的童年,该巷是以金成的爷爷命名的。2017年,金成将该作品译成小时候常说的广东语,同时探索新马两地广东话的差异。新加坡版的广东话由本地的邓官洪诠释,马来西亚版的则由陈子健呈现。此两个单人剧皆附上英文字幕。
