Nine Years Theatre
98 views . 11 shares

Red Demon’s music was originally composed by Singapore sound designer / composer Chong Li Chuan for Nine Year Theatre’s production in 2016. The music fuses South East Asian elements with contemporary western music styles, resulting in a hauntingly meditative mood.
The video footage is centred on the “textures” of less-travelled corners in the Aliwal street area –– backstreets structures, weathered walls –– as well as those of Nature, such as the bark and roots of old trees in the precinct.

Teater Ekamatra x NADA
100 views . 9 shares

NADA takes another allegorical form, this time of a pelesit, a shapeshifting spirit in Malay folklore that is known to move at warp speed. "Macam pelisit" (like a pelisit) as the common saying goes, implies something or someone has just vanished into thin air. What is often forgotten is its magical abilities to attain beauty and bring financial gain at its master's command.

Like a pelesit, NADA shall be, too, a lost and wandering one without a master to serve and can only absorb beauty wherever it goes. In this meandering journey, NADA traverses various spots and locations around Kampong Gelam, enchanted by the stories to emit more hauntological sounds.

The urban environment is often defined by the hustle and bustle of human activities within and surrounding it. When that is removed and everything is left undisturbed, it goes into a tranquil state where stains from yesteryear can be magnified and echoes from the past amplified, leaving us clues for the many stories to be reimagined. With Kampong Gelam as a canvas and playground, NADA goes out in search of these calm and quiet corners. In their exploration, they seek for relevant remnants to conjure their own versions of the past. Little did they know of their own trails that they will be leaving behind.
