Presented by The Esplanade, The Studios 2017: MARGINS celebrates the work of Haresh Sharma, one of the Singapore's most established and respected playwrights. We were engaged to conceptualise a key visual design for the season.

Synopsis

Haresh's plays have been known for multiple dimensions and perspectives in characters and commentaries, often steer spectators away from absolutes and reductive judgements.

To express this, we distorted portraiture of the main actress based on a tessellated geometric grid. The end result is she looks seemingly familiar yet unsettlingly alien. This shifting familiarity experienced by the audience echoes the nature of Haresh's work.
