Synopsis

A group of shipwrecked children embark on a daring quest to reverse a malevolent curse that has transformed adults into strange animal hybrids. Guided by the enigmatic sorcerer Prospero, they must gather four extraordinary ingredients from an enchanted, mysterious island to brew a potion of transformation. The fate of the adults now rests in their hands.  

 

Caliban’s Island is an interactive play where audiences play characters and advance the story by making challenging choices and completing quests around Esplanade. Inspired by The Tempest by William Shakespeare, Caliban’s Island tells a powerful tale of redemption, sacrifice and the enduring bond between adults and children.

Artist Information

Void Deck Games

Void Deck Games is an immersive theatre company that explores audience agency in narratives through gamified story structures and casting audiences as characters.  

 

Our focus is on people, and we design experiential stories that beckon participants to play an active role in co-creation and see imaginary worlds through the eyes of a character. The audience is a co-conspirator, never a passive observer. Through drama and negotiation, they collectively decide the story outcomes and make meaning from their artistic experience. 

 

We seek to inspire empathy, communication and positive change in Singaporean culture by reconnecting communities and people through collaborative play experiences.
