Trailer for a piece done in collaboration with Singapore Writers Festival.
Toogie's Trip to Bukuokuka follows a soul waiting on a lover. Reliving her memories with this significant other, she loses her way and descends into distorted dreams and fantasies where the bittersweet of pain and suffering begin to emerge. Guided by The Man in the Orange Suit, Toogie journeys across uncanny dreamscapes of her own devising. She encounters the masochistic tribesmen of the Bukuokuka Tribe and her own inner child, who aid her in revisiting her violent past. As the line between reality and fiction start to blur, Toogie both finds and loses herself in mindless violence. She becomes both the observer and the observed; her own gaze reminding us that like her, we are all voyeurs in our own perverse fantasies.

“blue is a song about never changing the human spirit that lives inside your heart, even in the moments of our lives we feel emotionally crippled and incapable, navigating through difficult experiences and emotions that chip away the vulnerable parts of our hearts and amplify our deepest conflicts. To always live and be the real you whatever the weather.”

"Singapore’s HDB void decks are often deemed as a space for plural co-existence. Supposedly, people of different ethnicities, religions, cultures, and age, congregate and socialize in this space. However, as we are moving towards a more globalized and desensitized society, void decks are gradually losing its original purposes.
Public Housing serves as a space to integrate various races, cultures and religions present in current day Singapore.
