For the Record: Exploring Eurasian Narratives

Meet long-time friends, Ana and Kate. When their cousins marry, they turned from friends to family. But with a new child on the way, Ana's and Kate's friendship is tested, especially when they both want to be the Godmother. Obviously, there can be only one.

Watch Kate and Ana bicker their way through what it means to grow up Eurasian in Singapore, the challenges they face and the things they want to change.

For the Record is written and performed by Charlene Shepherdson and Cheyenne Phillips using elements of spoken word, poetry and ethnodrama. Come join us for an evening of stories: of family, culture and history.

This show has been developed under Centre 42's Basement Workshop. Presented by CharChey (Charlene Shepherdson & Cheyenne Phillips), For the Record is a 7-month project exploring Eurasian narratives in Singapore. It consists of 3 phases: a spoken word show (February' 17), a manuscript (May' 17) and an exhibition (June'17). The project is supported by the National Arts Council and the Eurasian Association.

*There will be a post-show dialogue after each performance.
