It’s ONE MORE DAY to Indulgence!
This new work by Kai and collaborators Bernice and Jereh will finally premiere tomorrow, 20 May. Yesterday, we began the audiovisual setup for the performance, before running through a tech rehearsal.
While tech was being set up, I spoke a little with the creative team about how they’re feeling. “I’m a bit bored,” Bernice jokes, “It was supposed to start at 3.30 but we’re still waiting.”
Kai shares that it’s hard to believe the performance the three collaborators have been developing will be publicly staged in two days’ time (as of yesterday evening). Unsurprisingly, they are nervous but excited, given how they have put in such a great deal of time, effort and thought into conceptualising and rehearsing the performance.
Indulgence, which is a work-in-progress, has continually undergone developments and changes throughout the process of creating the work. I ask Kai about the status of the performance and rehearsals, at just two days before showtime. “It’s never going to be ready,” she says, referring to how every work an artist puts out will never be ready or complete in the artist’s eyes. Nevertheless, she, Bernice and Jereh are comfortable and confident about the performance, which will run for four days, from 20 May (tomorrow!) to 23 May, Saturday.
We’ve all got our fingers crossed that the show will run smoothly, and we hope to see you there! Although it’s the eve of the premiere, it’s not too late to get tickets for Indulgence. Shows will be held at 8PM at 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 6737-7213 to book your tickets now!
