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 visual identity design for the season.

Synopsis

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

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