Utter 2017: SingLit Unearthed

Presented by The Arts House




Commissioned for Singapore Writers Festival


Utter is an annual Singapore Writers Festival initiative which showcases the best of Singapore writing and celebrates its potential to be adapted into different media and across languages, giving audiences fresh perspectives and a deeper understanding of our home-grown authors. In this year's edition, Utter 2017: SingLit Unearthed, we highlight the remarkable poetry and stories of four highly-distinguished writers—JM Sali, Gregory Nalpon, Tan Swie Hian, and former deputy prime minister S. Rajaratnam. They have been adapted with nuance and sensitivity by veterans K. Rajagopal and Lee Thean-jeen into live-action short films, and with boundless imagination by Henry and Harry Zhuang, and Jerrold Chong into animation shorts, respectively.

*30 min post-show dialogue with animator Jerrold Chong and writer Jia Lee
