Septfest 2020 Fringe: Harmful Space

17, 18, 19 September (3 sessions)
9.10 – 10pm
The Substation Theatre

In confronting the conflict between strengths and weaknesses, the strain between imagination and limitations, hurt from desires and realisation, disappointment from what is perceived versus reality, Aya Sekine discovers a 'harmful space (gap)' in how she is seen (by others and herself) with what she feels.

Join Aya Sekine in her exploration of Harmful Space through a collection of spoken word, digital projections, music followed by a dialogue.

About Septfest 2020 Fringe

Septfest 2020 Fringe presents nine immersive and sensorial workshop experiences that lead participants through a participatory process of intervention. These workshops hope to generate conversations and knowledge building around issues faced by various marginalised and displaced groups.

As various scenarios unfold through movement, spoken word and digital projections, you are invited to take on multiple roles (the thinker, the protagonist, the instigator). As the boundaries between past and present; imagination and reality; public and private; desire and needs blurs, what centres and informs your decision? How does your personal story influence your choice?

About Septfest

Septfest 2020 returns after a 5-year hiatus! Septfest is The Substation’s long-standing celebration of art, culture and community, held annually since 1990 to mark The Substation’s anniversary (16 September). Themed differently each year, Septfest features multi and interdisciplinary programmes such as exhibitions, performances, films from Singapore and the region to highlight the diversity and experimentation spirit of The Substation.

Marking the 30th anniversary of Singapore's first independent Home for the Arts and keeping true to The Substation’s spirit of experimentation and celebration of the alternative, Septfest 2020 presents stories of and from the fringe. Taking on the theme In The Margins, the festival takes a closer look at the stories of the marginalised, displaced, and forgotten communities. In its more abstract interpretation, the festival also features works that highlight the fragility and ephemeralness of spaces, physically or mentally, or even the relationships we have with ourselves or the encounters with strangers we meet.

The festival kicks off with a fringe festival in September, followed by the main festival in March 2021.
