On-site at Tampines Round Market and Food Center (TRMFC)

Since most of the dancers were not present during the previous activation, Haizad updated everyone what was done and the new developments about the performance; each dancer will have their own trolley, the TOTO/lucky draw concept.


Bringing everyone up to speed about what was done during the previous rehearsal.

Everyone then recapped and taught the co-created phrase done during one of the previous rehearsals. This time, there were two trolleys for the dancers to try interacting with, more will be added later as they were still sourcing out.


Recalling the co-created phrase.

At the start of this rehearsal, Hasyimah approached the Malay stall, Kayat, as they were preparing their cooking ingredients for the next day. This time, they even shared some fried potatoes with her as they were making begedil (deep fried potato patties). It seems that the stall operators are becoming more comfortable with our presence, especially Hasyimah.


A connection 9 rehearsals in the making.

After they were done recalling the movements from the co-created phrase, Haizad wanted to try the last segment, this time with the trolleys and to add in some small details. He instructed two of them to simulate arranging all the trolleys in a line to signal the end of the segment. Everyone will then move towards the trolleys to take out their costumes, put them into the trolleys and disperse them all around the hawker center.
