Remotes x Quantum
Remotes x Quantum is a thrilling collaboration between playwright Eleanor Wong and filmmaker John Torres, reimagining life in Singapore and the Philippines on the brink of a dystopian world order.
In the Philippines, ordinary people sell the control of their bodies to become avatars purely to survive. In Singapore, an island ladened with first-world preoccupations, people struggle to find new meaning in the face of existential challenges.
Wong and Torres conjure a dream language to meditate on the physicality, spirituality, and politics of human bodies limboed in varied states of possession.
Blending film, poetry, theatre and sound in a swirling multi-disciplinary live installation, Remotes x Quantum is a searing examination of the state of possession, both as noun and verb.
