It is New Year’s Eve,
It is New Year’s Eve, and as 65-year-old Emily sits alone on her rocking chair while celebrations explode in the city outside, we are brought beneath her skin and into the story of her relationship with her son.
She recalls having gone into labour exactly 30 years ago this night; the many months of carrying her son, Ray with great expectation; the lonely darkness of her post-natal depression. She remembers the years of loving him and slowly letting him go as she sees him grow into the man he is now.
Inspired by personal narratives of maternity and postnatal depression, Under My Skin explores the complex journey of motherhood. Starring Catherine Sng, Rizman Putra and Pat Toh, this immersive work weaves movement, multimedia and sound to tell a compelling story of a woman making peace with her past.Under My Skin is a new devised physical theatre collaboration between Singapore-based Italian director ALESSANDRA FEL, a strong cast of Singaporean actors and an experienced creative design team.
