Ghostwalking with Spell#7

This September, spell#7 launches their latest audio-video journey, Ghostwalking.

Taking the form of a free download, which people can listen to and watch on smart phones or media players, the artwork is a completely unique way to experience Singapore, its places and history. As you travel on the MRT and stop off at Dhoby Ghaut, Little India, Outram and Punggol, you will become immersed in stories and characters who appear to haunt these spaces.

There are four ‘audio walks’ (narrated guided tours around Dhoby Ghaut, Little India, Outram and Punggol) and three ‘video journeys’, short films that can be watched while traveling between stations. On the ‘audio walks’ you follow four chapters in the tale of Tony, a man conjures fragments of a life that spans Singapore’s history and even its future. He tells stories, attempts to make sense of his life, or dream a new one up. Tony is haunted, or is he haunting these places? On the ‘video journeys’ that unfold on the train between stops, you’ll hear and see the confessions of various people from contemporary Singapore, all are in some way exiles, metaphorical ‘ghosts’ caught between cultures, countries, identities.

The creative team for Ghostwalking includes Life! Theatre award-winning writer Kaylene Tan, film writer Ben Slater, Evan Tan from The Observatory as sound and music designer, and award winning film-maker and photographer Sherman Ong. Actors playing Tony at different stages of his life on the ‘audio walks’ include Adrian Pang, Lim Kay Siu and Brendon Fernandez.

This Saturday, 18 September at 3pm, there will be a talk at Spell#7 about Ghostwalking. All are welcome. Venue: 65 Kerbau Road, Little India.
