From the ancient era to modern times, spirits, superstition and the supernatural have long been a part of the human narrative. As we explore the perceived differences between cultures and their predominant religions, the lines that separate them begin to blur.

What is it to believe versus our beliefs?

O/AURAL WAVES - SPIRITED WORDS bring you on a visual and audio journey where we explore our notions of religion, culture and spirituality - stories and sounds that came before, are present and go beyond our shores.

This edition at Textures 2020 sees Master Storyteller Kamini Ramachandran and inter-disciplinary sound artist FERRY delve into the works of Catherine Lim and Verena Tay, to present an original and newly devised installation and performance that merges storytelling, theatre and live foley.

A "silent" experience, wireless headphones are required and provided. As such, please be advised to be present at least 15mins before each session. Subtitling is not available.
