Eavesdrop on this live site-specific drama by Chinese Arts Now.Taking place in our colonnade cafe, join us for this one of a kind performance.
You’re in a bar, or is it a cafe, a restaurant? Either way you start catching snatches of conversation. An explosive encounter between a waiter and pushy customer, obnoxious un-PC mutterings from the table behind you, an anxious hand-wrangling conversation about something monumentally important. “Overheard” draws on contemporary crises and challenges in the Chinese world, allowing you to eavesdrop on the hopes and dreams, private politics, and secret desires of characters from across the Chinese diaspora.
Written by Joel Tan and directed by Mingyu Lin.
