THE ROAD TO RENAISSANCE
Singapore’s ambition to become a true centre for the arts examined in
new TV documentary by Premiere 12
“We always feel in Singapore there’s always so much control. So long as
there is this feeling, there’s this control over you, even if you are
not being directly censored, you do feel you do somehow end up censoring
yourself. This fear is the kind of fear when you feel that you don’t
have, you don’t feel empowered to just go ahead.” Daniel Kok, Artist

If I watch you for long enough, I could disappear completely.
When I dance like this, I am not myself.
In this dream, everything is in slow motion.
In this absence, I could be anybody’s dream.
You have been watching me.
You have been watching me for a long time.
