Four people come together with the same probiem: sleep.

Four people volunteer for a sleep experiment to find a cure: they need to sleep in order to live.

Between sobriety and hallucination lies life; between dreaming and awakening lies living; between life and living lies LIV.

Collaborating with a newly formed ensemble company, A GROUP OF PEOPLE (Oliver Chong, Koh Wan Ching, Timothy Nga and Edith Podesta), 2009 Full Frontal Director Nelson Chia conceives and directs this original, wistful and whimsical production that invites you to witness the various imitations of life and intimidations on mortality. Traversing between worlds of hyper-realities conjured by texts (Robin Loon), sounds (Emanorwatty Saleh) and images (Koo Chia Meng), LIV meditates on the possible pleasures of being Alive.

Director: Nelson Chia
Collaborators/Performers: Oliver Chong, Koh Wan Ching, Timothy Nga, Edith Podesta
