Future Reminiscence

By Didier ‘Jaba’ Mathieu

The Rivers that Belay

By Moses Tan and Susan Sentler
Visual projection cum dance performance

Moses Tan created a visual projection comprising images and footages by drawing on water passages that were once used by merchants and travellers of the past; while Susan Sentler worked together with artists, Rachel Poh and Valerie Lim in a performance. Audiences were able to explore the history and impermanence of objects and locations by looking at the canals that outline Little India as a means to initiate conversations of and about the past.

Set in the distant future where climate change has eroded the temples that once existed, the only artefact that remains of those glorious times is an image of the Goddess of Time, Kali. With this picture, a time traveller embarks on a journey to regain knowledge about the old temples, so they can be created again. Meanwhile, in 1925, a clerk plans to construct a new temple in Singapore. How will their paths meet? The connections forged by Time can be more unexpected than we think.

Nakshatra: The Lunar Mansions

Indian festivals and special occasions are influenced by the stars. As we celebrate the harvest festival of Pongal, discover the origin story of the Nakshatras, the constellations. How did the stars come to be? And what is their story?
