PALINDROME - in girum imus nocte et consumimur igni
"we enter the circle at night and are consumed by fire"
This Latin palindrome describes the behaviour of the moth. The lesson the moth teaches us is that "it is better to be a part of beauty in one instant then cease to exist than to exist forever and never be a part of beauty."
Palindrome is a LIVE performance with an intention of questioning "is this the life that I want to live?" and "what is this fire that can consume me?"
Featuring original compostitions by Jonathan Shin and Govin Tan, ensemble led and directed by Leslie Tan, join Open Score Project as they take you on a journey through real-life stories shared by people who had to make decisions that "cost them their lives."
