------

A woman awakes and finds herself in the underworld, dead. As if that isn't enough, she learns that she needs to rush through her application for reincarnation. She revisits life-changing episodes of her life, only to find out that she has a knot in her heart, one that has been forgotten and buried in her mind ...waiting to be untied.

KNOTS is an original production created by the drama group, STRANGER. Made up of six young artists, STRANGER hopes to tell a story that depicts language politics and societal expectations in Singapore today, and how they influence and inform our life choices.

About STRANGER
STRANGER 艺族 is a Singapore theatre collective. We are six artists who graduated from the second cohort of ARTivate, the youth wing of Drama Box. As theatre-makers working in an increasingly fractured society, we strive to find common ground while celebrating individuality. With a keen interest in social issues, we aspire to make art that reflects social reality, and resonates with our audience.

The six members of STRANGER are Melody Chan, Teo Pei Si, Angelina Teo, Chng Yi Kai, Kwan Chun Long, and Toh Wee Peng.
