In 2011, my friends and I celebrated something important to us at that time at a Sushi Tei. We were still hungry and so we ate leftover rice from the table next to us. The memory of getting caught remains etched so clearly in my mind, both in image and in feeling. Time seems to have accelerated since then, but the past two years went by so quickly it seems more like a black hole. The real question is what happens next?

Two Pigeons... is a quiet play for everyone stepping into the post-pandemic era, featuring lots of animals, video footage from the early 2010s, Sheng Siong, and small dances.

It explores the coming months of hyper-socialisation, and whether we can live with ourselves when we've given up trying to fall in love. For this reason, the show is likely to be wacky but also a bit sad. If all else fails, there's pet fish to keep us company. Feel free to relax a little.
