Albizia is an immersive performance installation created by artist Robert Zhao Renhui.
Videos, photography, and sound are woven into an immersive natural setting that recreates one of several secondary forests that fill Singapore's landscape. Through an artfully choreographed journey into this surreal and evocative space, audiences will experience stories of the vivid inter-species dramas that unfold deep inside our secondary forests.
Inspired by ecological research that reclaims these "second-tier forests" as precious opportunities to reimagine the future, Albizia invites us to consider the potential for life and regeneration in these forests on the margins of our island.
The performance will include the use of strobe lighting, haze, smoke and loud sound effects.
Do dress comfortably as you are free to move around the space for the duration of the experience.
