The Vault: 汐/Sea
Mon 23 November 2015, 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM Singapore Standard Time Singapore Time
Written by Haresh Sharma in 1997, Sea is a phantasmagoric journey through the lives of two sisters who can’t live with or without each other, but are always with and without each other.
The short play was staged as part of a double-bill in 1997 at The Substation. On stage as the sisters were Serene Chen and Zelda Tatiana Ng. In the audience were Robin Loon and Casey Lim. The performance left its mark on both of them. it made such an impression on Robin that he was inspired to re-engage Sea through transaltion, a creative process that produced <<汐>>.
Eighteen years on, Serene, Zelda, Robin and Casey revisit Sea, refreshed with a completely new Chinese translation <<汐>> alongside Haresh’s English text. In tow are their personal reflections on the 1997 staging.
Don’t miss this one-night only performance-presentation. Performed in English and Mandarin with surtitles.
