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.

Dear Patrons,

Your health and safety as well as that of our staff are very important to us. In addition to the safety procedures that The Arts House has implemented, we will also be putting social distancing measures in place. We encourage all patrons to practise social responsibility by adhering to the following guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health:

  • Practice social distancing by ensuring that you maintain a 1-metre distance from others. This will be done either through seat spacing, or for fixed-seating rooms, through alternate seats on alternate rows (chequerboard seating)
  • Wash or sanitise your hands before touching any equipment.
  • If you are feeling unwell, refrain from entering the exhibition space and notify our staff as soon as possible

Everyone has a part to play! Together with your cooperation, we can all enjoy the arts in a safe and responsible manner.
