Drawn primarily from Alfian Sa'at's A History of Amnesia, The City Remembers is a devised collaboration by NUS Stage and NUS Electronic Music Lab (EML) which explores notions of rigidity in the faceless conditions of urbanisation. Created out of workshops with award-winning director Edith Podesta and utilising Anne Bogart's Composition and Laban acting techniques, actors will embody the stories set to a live soundtrack composed by musicians from EML, which tease out the darker sides of living in a modern multi-cultural society.

This free performance is part of ExxonMobil Campus Concerts, presented by NUS Centre For the Arts.
