TheatreWorks is proud to present Brian Gothong Tan’s work-in-progress, Sublime Monsters and Virtual Children at 72-13!

A performance within an installation, Sublime Monsters and Virtual Children explores how rituals, both public and personal, shape and transform experiences and perceptions. Playful and surreal,Sublime Monsters and Virtual Children is a contemporary performance that  combines film, theatre and performance art.

Made in collaboration with composer Philip Tan, designer Vince Ong, lighting designer Ian Tan and featuring performers Neo Swee Lin, Karen Tan, Faizal Abdullah, Ellison Tan and Nadia AR.

Brian has collaborated with TheatreWorks in a number of productions and he was one of 72-13 Creatives-in-Residence.

Presenting Sublime Monsters and Virtual Children is part of TheatreWorks’ intention to present innovative and engaging artists that will offer to the Singapore audience alternative viewpoints and perspectives to mainstream contemporary performance.  We hope to be the bridge between innovative artistic expressions and the Singapore audiences.  Our home, 72-13, acts as an incubator for artistic experiments by these artists.
