MEMORIES RELIVED. SONGS REIMAGINED. FUTURE REINSPIRED
Re: Life is a multi-faceted collaboration that uses music and literary arts to bring a local story from the community to life. "Yayang's Story" is told in fragments, leaving the audience space to ponder and relate. This project revives musical works from the 1500s with newly orchestrated arrangements and commissioned lyrics by Singaporean poet Aaron Lim.
"Yayang" is what her late father fondly calls her by. Join "Yayang", as she shares her untold experiences such as supporting her loved ones through illness while recovering from her own amputation. Hear her brother's fatal heart attack sprouted a friendship that surpasses the lines of religion, race, and culture, during a time of nationwide struggle.
This project was originally conceptualized as a short video project which tells story snippet of people in the community. With the support from the National Arts Council (Singapore), we are able to create a fuller picture of the story we hoped to share and inspire others with.
