Synopsis

Born to an English father and a Malay mother, Leila ‘Anjung’ Keats is an unprecedented figure in local history and considered to be one of the pioneers of Malaya. However, shortly after her death, the archivist investigating her life finds some curious inconsistencies. Of particular note is an art piece of mysterious origin and an untitled ghazal beginning with the cryptic refrain, 'Give me your hand'.

As he reads Leila’s journals, the archivist is increasingly drawn into the details of her life. 

Is truth subjective? Are the margins of history wide enough to contain the depth and breadth of a human life? THREE INCHES OF ALIVE explores the nature of history and the individual’s place in it, questioning the objectivity of collected facts.

Organiser

TheatreWorks (Singapore)

TheatreWorks, established in 1985, is an independent and international performance company based in Singapore and is unique for its reinvention of traditional performances through a juxtaposition of aesthetics. TheatreWorks has two main red lines in its work: the first is the creation and presentation of inter-disciplinary and intercultural programmes, and the second being documentary performances. TheatreWorks reflects a concern with negotiation, synergy, and artistic sharing between individuals and societies.  TheatreWorks has consciously created 72-13, a space, to have more diverse and inclusive dialogues. TheatreWorks intends to share the transcendental potential of art through innovative contemporary performances engaging audiences with uncommon alternatives.
