We were all assigned to watch Cerita Anak (Child’s Story) by Papermoon Puppet Theatre and Polyglot Theatre at Esplanade as inspiration for Ghost with Dirty Feet. We had a collective discussion on our responses to the play.
Based on our observations of Cerita Anak
Are we exploring a response of the Ghost with Dirty Feet?
Or are we re-iterating the story?
What is essential to be included in the performance??
We then physicalized it and created the following scenes:
There is no food for the family.
We then hunt for the king fish to exchange for rice.
There is an adopted child.
She is insecure and fearful of being given away.
Name calling as a positive experience through call & response game.
