Black Box, Centre 42
70 min with no intermission

Conceptualised and performed by Loo Zihan
A commission by M1 Singapore Fringe Festival

“Memory capacitors are so limited these days.”
“Our reality is what we remember it to be.”
What relationship do we share with our possessions?
How can we orient ourselves to these things differently?

This intimate interactive experience begins in the form of an artist lecture and dialogue where Zihan will share his experiences of staging his installation Queer Objects: An Archive for the Future (2016), an assemblage of objects for a hypothetical queer archive in Singapore.

Following this, the audience-participants will join Zihan in a series of participatory activities and conversation, to examine the fictional and factual, virtual and actual potential of objects, in a bid to meditate on the contingency of identity and being.

Catamite was developed in residence at Centre 42.

Due to the nature of this work, only 20 audience-participants will be admitted per show.

Tickets available here.
