Goddesses of Words Work-In-Progress Showcase



In the second instalment to Goddesses of Words, an ensemble of prominent local Indian actresses gather their voices in response to the words of local poets Pooja Nansi and Deborah Emmanuel. Spearheaded by writer-director Grace Kalaiselvi, catch this devised theatre work featuring impassioned female voices in the face of a frenetic urban society that often erases and effaces. This work-in-progress showcase will echo and lead into Textures, The Arts House’s celebration of Singapore Literature in March 2020.

This programme is as part of

10 – 19 Jan 2020

Over two weekends, The Arts House invites you to celebrate, share and enjoy stories from Singapore and beyond. In conjunction with the Light to Night Festival, this year's Prologue will turn this historic space into an intimate gathering of words through multidisciplinary performances, installations, and interactive activities. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, embark on a journey away from the bustle of the Civic District through urban landscapes of cities new and old, past and present, real and imagined.
