(Textures 2020) re:VERSE 4.0

Advisory: 16 (Mature Content)

Chinese Literary collective Matter.Less 所谓诗社 will be presenting re:Verse 4.0: Poetry/Displacement (砸诗烩4.0: 流离诗所), a series of adaptations of local literary works, which serves as a response or interpretation of the text through a fusion of theatrical elements. This fourth edition of the programme is underpinned by Kuo Pao Kun’s notion of Cultural Orphans, which is described as “a sense of loss and alienation, and a kind of anxiety in the search of self”. It seeks to re-examine the physical and tangible daily appearances that we choose to (or not) identify ourselves with and uncover the juxtapositions within the intangible aspects of our cultural identities and selves. Performed in English and Mandarin, with some surtitles.


This programme is part of Textures 2020: A Weekend with Words

The third edition of the festival will take on the theme “These Storied Walls”. First launched in 2018, Textures is an annual literary festival celebrating Singapore literature and the community that drives it. Engage your senses at this homegrown festival and gain a deeper appreciation for our literary works with the wide range of performances, workshops & installations.
