This workshop is an interactive conversation amongst community members and participants from all ages to share their cuentos/kwentos on how they navigate both cultures with ease but also discomfort. Growing up in a country where one is considered a majority has a different effect on others who were raised in a society where they were considered a minority.

Thoughts of My Body (TOMB) is the culmination of a three-play cycle focused on the Human Form. Its inception was two years ago at the Haque Centre of Acting and Creativity and garnered accolades amongst artists and community members. We started out with Creation of My Body (COMB), a devised theatrical piece that focused on the physical perception, cultural expectation and instantaneous modernization in today’s society. It was followed by Words of My Body (WOMB), which went deeper into the psyche of how language can engage, enrage and ultimately transform the human spirit.
My embodied thoughts are the imprint that I will leave behind for the world to experience.

"here along Casuarina trees,
there will always be benches
stories of traffic and twilight
if you place your ears on them
they will tell you how many miles many have
ran and slept, ate and hearts broken
but I will just look out today and see forever."
Benches is a coming-of-age, two-person poetic play on love, loss, and what it means for some stories to stay with us forever.
This is the Singapore premiere of an international collaboration, supported by the Poetry Festival Singapore.
