DESCRIPTION

Play a round of mahjong with Chinese author Eileen Chang (Lust, Caution), or witness a verbal sparring between Chinese ghost-story writer, Pu Songling (聊斋, Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio), and Mary Shelley (Frankenstein). Then fill up with hors d’oeuvre from the wedding breakfast of Miss Havisham, the poor spinster jilted at the altar in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, as well as delicacies from the Mad Hatter’s tea party in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.  

The multi-sensorial offerings also include a series of film screenings (like 2006 anime, Paprika, and rare 1989 Japanese film, Raffles Hotel) and the magical, dreamy soundscapes of sonic alchemist Mervin Wong. Conceptualised and produced by Global Cultural Alliance and co-directed by Jeremiah Choy and Jeffrey Tan, this production creates a surreal purgatory where the past and the present overlap, and ghosts in your head come alive.
