Event: “HOTEL” by W!ld Rice (in partnership with Singapore International Festival of Arts 2015)
Venue: Victoria Theatre
Run: 27th – 30th Aug 2015

Official Synopsis:

“A hotel is opened at the turn of the century, when the island is still a jewel in the British Crown. It serves as an exotic pit stop for travellers who wish to explore the glittering expanse of the British Empire.

Each day, new faces appear and swiftly disappear – guests and staff alike. Every ten years, we check into the hotel and meet its residents. As Singapore morphs from British colony to Malaysian state to sovereign nation, its denizens – including Singaporeans, Malayans, British subjects, and migrant workers from all over the world – experience profound and dramatic changes. We meet Indian mutineers, Cantonese nannies, Malay film stars, mining magnates, Japanese soldiers, drag queens, wedding guests and suspected terrorists…

As a century goes by, ghosts communicate with the living, doubles are separated by decades, and ancestors leave their stubborn traces behind. Empires die, and new ones are born from their ashes.

An immersive and multi-generational epic, Hotel is directed by Ivan Heng and Glen Goei, and written by Alfian Sa’at and Marcia Vanderstraaten. The multi-generational, multi-racial, multi-national cast includes Ghafir Akbar, Brendon Fernandez, Sharda Harrison, Jo Kukathas, Dwayne Lau, Lim Kay Siu, Moo Siew Keh, Neo Swee Lin, Pam Oei, Julie Wee, Yap Yi Kai, Ben Cutler & Siti Khalijah Zainal.

Part 1 is set in the years 1915 to 1965, and Part 2 is set in the years 1975 to 2015. Performed in English, Malay, Tamil, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien and Japanese.”
