Kumar's Living Together. No Holds Barred.
Kumar’s “Living Together” is a sixty to seventy-five minute live standup comedy performance centered on the multi-racial and multi-national housing landscape in Singapore.
Produced by Hoods Inc. Productions Pte Ltd and fronted by the witty and biting Kumar, who doubles up as performer and artistic director, this series of live heartland performances delves into issues that affect Singaporeans in their most intimate surroundings – their homes.
With 80% of Singapore’s population living in HDBs, Living Together will touch on ‘home affairs’ topics close to all our hearts - from neighbourliness of the 60s and 70s to the kiasu / privacy issues of today to protecting our frontage with potted plants and slippers, incense burning, cooking overpowering curry, void deck weddings, lack of patience and communication among the youth, xenophobia vs claustrophobia, generation gaps, technology, racial harmony, Asian values and distinctly heartland behaviour.
The traveling performance moves to four heartland hubs and showcases the talents of five performers from varied backgrounds, genders, races, nationalities and ages - Kumar, Koh Chieng Mun, Zaliha Hamid, Sharul Channa and Shane Mardjuki. In addition to the live comedy segments, the
Living Together performance will also feature short videos showcasing heartlanders thoughts, feelings and opinions.
Raising issues through comedy and enlightening points-of-view, “Living Together” will have a positive, upbeat tone about our social landscape for this first-of-its-kind arts performance for the masses, bringing the theatre experience to the heartland.
All donations from the event will go to Beyond Social Services and their beneficiaries.
