"Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming." - Alice Walker
Both curious and playful, PROJECT Utopia invites you to join us as we embark on a journey to rediscover our relationship with the world around us. Five artists from Finland, Germany, Indonesia and Singapore set forth to question what utopia means in a disturbingly unpredictable world. These artists draw upon their respective cultural contexts to create five evocative performance vignettes. These stories are weaved into a vivid tapestry of dreams, comprising of movement, poetry, multimedia, sound and at times, your participation. Together, we hope to offer PROJECT Utopia as a momentary respite to ask: What is your utopia?

PROJECT Utopia is an ongoing theatre project. It is a vault of questions; a space for interactions between disparate cultures and ideas that can spark new potentialities. Through PROJECT Utopia, we project our hopes for a future that we believe we can help to shape.
