Stories and poems have the power to transport us to faraway or familiar places, taking us to other worlds beyond the comfort of our everyday lives. In this dynamic programme, poets from the Migrant Writers of Singapore present tender and heartfelt moments through a series of performances—including collaborations with their Singaporean counterparts!


Accompanied by the graceful notes and rhythms of the keyboard and tabla, performed by musicians from the Migrants Band Singapore, prepare for a moving experience of new cultures, languages, and worlds.


This is a multilingual programme with English translations.
