In a tight embrace above the very line that divides the land, two unknown soldiers deeply in love and with different loyalties contemplate the inevitable as the night sky above Motherland starts to burn red. When Motherland eventually bleeds and pleads for vengeance, how should the soldier love?
First presented as a work-in-progress at Headlines Act / SIFA-X 2023 Edition by Centre 42 and Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA), Motherland examines notions of love as framed between the extremes of loyalty and betrayal responding to the remembered, forgotten, neglected, and celebrated violent conflicts all around the world that continue to develop, evolve, and erupt to this day.
