The dreamy and desolate landscapes of the poetry of Daryl Lim Wei Jie (Young Artist Award, 2023), from his acclaimed collection, Anything but Human, (shortlisted for the 2022 Singapore Literature Prize), verge on apocalypse and revelation, and are rife with visceral and surprising images. In this performance, Daryl collaborates with Dave Lim, a visual artist and filmmaker (and his brother), interpreting these poems in real-time visual form, resulting in a poetry reading like no other.


No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
