In The Silence of Your Heart by Kaylene Tan, Esplanade Theatre Studio, 5 – 8 April
In the Silence of Your Heart is an invitation to enter the world of a charming politician and inveterate drinker. Thian has been paralysed for 13 years. He’s been still and silent all this time, but his mind has not stopped dancing. He gets by with the two things he does have: his memory and his imagination. Today, his world is trembling. It is the birth day of his dead daughter and there is a hole in his foot. Meditative and operatic, In the Silence of Your Heart is an in-ear audio experience for the theatre. Performed by Jalyn Han and Tan Hui Er, with the voice of Lim Kay Tong as ‘Man’.
