A Certain Sort of Hunger

An EtiquetteSG Event
Description


For many in Singapore, assumptions of life beyond the grave are part-and-parcel of the everyday. And similar to many cultures throughout Asia, female spirits in particular, play an interesting role in how the supernatural is imagined and constructed.

Whether she be the pontianak who waits for a victim by the side of the road, or the mother or lover who returns for revenge, the female spirit is often characterised as treading the line between agency and oppression: On one hand, she is an autonomous character who seeks justice on her own terms; on another, agency is only granted in death and in the transformation of her into a villain.

What do these imaginings suggest? What happens when we re-imagine or humanise these “villainous” women? What is it about women, that makes us so frightening and why always, this hunger to return?

Developed and presented by Etiquette SG, A Certain Sort of Hunger comprises readings and performances that aim to horrify, humour, as well as answer a few of these questions.

Look forward to a night of wicked words by Ad Maulod, Dana Lam, Nabilah Husna Stephanie Dogfoot
and Tania De Rozario.
