Arif and Ani are migrant workers in Singapore. A chance encounter develops into a romantic relationship. However, can they afford to fall in love in Singapore when they have obligations back in their home countries? Complications arise when news threatens the foundation of their relationship.


Foreign Bodies is devised by the Company and performed by an ensemble of migrant and Singapore actors. It looks at the desperate and extreme situations migrants in Singapore sometimes find themselves in. Although they are told to focus on working and making money for their families back home, often they desire a better quality of life in Singapore. However, not everything always goes as planned.
