House Party: Transformations - Shapeshifter Stories
In conjunction with World Storytelling Day, the House Party and Moonshadow Stories present Asian tales surrounding the theme of ‘transformations’.
Who do you really see? Some of us hide our true skins when the light appears. Some of us have sold our souls for love and beauty. Some of us are being watched by those from another realm.
Asian folklore is rife with tales of transformation. Of mortals, animals and spirits that morph and mutate to pursue their desires and dreams. Look closer, look deeper, and perhaps you see the glimmer of claws or a single black paw. Tread where you should never, and find yourself trapped in a parallel sphere.
This World Storytelling Day revel in ancient stories of shapeshifters retold by master storyteller Kamini Ramachandran with live music accompaniment by Derrick Tay.
Suitable for adult audiences 16 years and above.
The House Party
The House Party is an annual celebration organised by The Arts House where artists, writers and musicians come together to share with us stories that inspire their being and their work. This year, we highlight the various literary expressions across artistic genres through an eclectic range of events by Singapore artists. From a poetic musical dialogue curated by Young Artist Award winner Marc Nair, a showcase of Asian stories by master storyteller Kamini Ramachandran, a photo exhibition by local photographers Liana Yang and Lavender Chang, to jazz and chamber music performances curated by Aya Sekine and violinist Loh Jun Hong respectively. Come join us to celebrate our Singapore artists.
