22 January 2015 – 24 January 2015 @ Gallery Theatre, National Museum of Singapore


A group of 20-somethings turns up at an 80s mosaic playground the evening before it is due for demolition. Over the span for the night, what starts out as an earnest protest event turns into an unravelling of relationships and betrayals, enacting on a quieter level questions of the respective costs of progress and nostalgia. By turns funny, poignant and melancholy, Mosaic is a love-song to generation Y's hang-ups and dramas, exploring the struggles people go through to hold on to things that have long slipped into the past.
