Venue: The Vault
Run: 5th – 7th Dec 2013

Skinned Knee Productions proudly presents an original cinematic theatre experience entitled “Ox”, which is written by Adeline Pang and directed by Adam Marple.

It stars Amanda Tee, Seth Adams, and Adeline Pang.

Official synopsis:
“Ox” is an intimately poignant and sometimes surreal exploration of the connections between love and grief, tradition and modernity, memory and reality, and offers its audience an upclose, visceral experience in a uniquely filmic setting.

Mei is mourning the death of her grandmother. Mei writes to remember what her late grandmother taught her about “Ngow Lek”, oxen tenacity and strength. A woman known only as She has just lost her lover; She sleeps, and finds what she wants in memories. Without distinction between night and day, the two young women navigate through dreams, legends and childhood memories. Their individual stories of love and grief are connected in a profoundly personal way. And waiting for them along these two converging paths are a lecherous wolf and a heroic ox…

In a modern Asian society such as Singapore, we have been imparted our ancestors’ fables and beliefs. These mysticisms have shaped our cultural memory, perhaps even affecting us unconsciously in our everyday life. How aware are we of the level of dependence that we have on the stories we were told in our childhood — how do we stay true to our cultural identity without losing our personal identity?”
