A Peranakan saying goes, harta dunia nanti semua pulang balek dunia. The world’s riches must eventually be returned to the world. Of course, our uniquely Singaporean obsessions today are on more pragmatic sides of life: location of the next BTO, new ERP rates, COE prices issued every quarter, and how to beat the GST hike. Less philosophical musings, but many will argue as useful. Perhaps, what city-dwellers like you and I really need is a renewed experience of what doesn’t change. Whence we came, the identity that binds us, and the things we call home; the fount upon which we can always return to sustain and anchor ourselves.
How do we validate the memories of something as intangible as culture? In conjunction with The Intan’s 10th anniversary, 9 budding performers from Tampines Junior College present Transitions II, a collage of stories that connects us to our cultural identity. Through a spirited refashioning of Peranakan ancestral beginnings, a harrowing trial of sibling love strained by money, and an unlikely union between business partners with disparate traditions, our playful site-specific performance hopes to remind the audience of the profound happiness found in the simple ties that bind.
Welcome to The Intan.
