Double-bill by 9 Squares
Kids, when was the last time your parents asked you why you weren’t more like your classmates? Annoyed by how they expect you to be like others when in actual fact, they would be the least ideal students your parents wished you’d be? Finally they get to witness the true colors of the ‘perfect students’ as Isaac Tan features the irritating prefect who catches you for ankle socks, Simon Lee, along with the nerdy and kiasu Jim Lim and many more characters your parents never thought existed. Catch Isaac in the most outrageous outfits as he shows the adults why normal is ok and why sometimes, being yourself is good enough.
Navarasa is an emotion-filled piece featuring a 17 year journey of acceptance and be guided by the nine Hindu principle emotions of the human body expressions which are Strength, Compassion, Laughter, Wonder, Anger, Fear, Disgust, Love & Peace. Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Keep asking for me, and I will be given to you. Keep searching for me, and you will find me. Keep knocking for me, and I will be opened to you. Come with me, I will take you on a journey like no other.
