Synopsis:

We all know that death is part of life. Since it is part of our existence, why avoid it? Why not try to learn more about it? Why not get closer? Come explore these questions with us, as we wrap up our time in Chong Pang.

1) Participatory Performance Last Dance

100 days after a man's death, his family, friends and even strangers gather to remember the life he lived. Through dance, stories and conversations, we move closer to understanding the legacies we want to leave behind, for our loved ones and for ourselves.

Co-created by Kok Heng Leun, Chong Gua Khee, Muhammad Muazzam Bin Amanah & Rei Poh

Dates & Language of performance:
19 & 21 Sept 2018, English

2) Public Art Installation

What will your legacy be? For the past year, a group of seniors in Chong Pang has been working with four artists – Han Xuemei, Alecia Neo Jasmine Ng and Shirley Soh – to explore this question, and to create artworks that reflect the experiences, values and relationships that are close to their hearts. Discover their creations by exploring this neighbourhood trail, and find out what they would like to share with us about living and dying.
