PEREIRA IRVING PAUL (occultist / artist)
Simultaneously appears in spoken word circles, painting studios (bedroom), space (near Sirius), in sound systems, old school book formats, various t.v archives, in the strange dreams of others.

The MadHatter Project drives its sound around the piano and/or keyboards. It is through this configuration that we write, create and turn what already exists on its heads. Coupled with a worldview that is oxymoronically both optimistic and cynical, the result is music that is quirky and flamboyant yet introverted and introspective.

C MURDA (choregrapher / performer)
Charles Li aka C Murda picked up street dance styles in 2002 at the age of 16 in Sydney Australia. He specialises in the style of Popping, a style made most famous by popular icons such as Michael Jackson. He is also able to create complex choreography depending on the nature of the class he is teaching. Charles has performed and competed in various battles, corporate events, dance showcase competitions in Singapore.

Runtime: 9 minutes
Directed by: Sun Koh
Jen is on the verge of entry into university law school. But there's one problem - she's very pregnant. Determined to be a success in life, Jen goes on a violent spree to silence anyone who threatens to reveal her dirty secrets, only to realize that everyone else in power is a dirty bitch. Inspired by a badly censored VHS of Claire Denis' Nenette et Boni found in a Singapore library.

(drawing / performance)

In the midst of this chaotic realm that I exist, I chose to be colourful and celebrate the undying pain of this suffering that this world is now experiencing. I don't intend to create something but more of fusing my creative experiences and moments with the existing.
Being someone who loves to incorporate metaphorical messages, I love to fantasize about the things I do and would always end up in a fantasy world more colourful than the actual reality.
I would like to celebrate sincerity in love and spread it through my visual works.
