LAUNCH + PERFORMANCE: "Vital Possessions", Marc Nair

  • Esplanade 100 Esplanade Drive Singapore Singapore (map)

Vital Possessions by Marc Nair contemplates how city-dwellers negotiate their uneasy relationship with nature in a world where growth is both man-made and natural. The jungle is always one trim away from over-running us and we are often oblivious to it. The poems question what we hold as vital amid ceaseless consumption and our urban existence. 

At this performance & book launch, Marc will be performing poems from the book, songs and other monologues specially crafted for the occasion. A number of the pieces have been set to original music as well. The performance moves the text from page to stage, allowing the poems to leap from one media to another and reconstituting how we see our own vital possessions. 

Vital Possessions is Marc Nair’s 9th poetry collection. The collection was first written and conceptualised during his 2015 writing residency at Gardens by the Bay.
