In a world irrevocably changed by the COVID-19 pandemic, how do we respond to our new lives on an individual level and as a society? How do we process these new experiences? These Brief Encounters is a contemporary dance performance created in response to The Plague by Albert Camus, exploring how a novel published in 1947 captures the spirit of the present day.

Camus’ The Plague operates on an allegorical and a literal level, finding meaning in ordinary people doing extraordinary things out of simple decency — a sentiment which still rings true today.

Choreographed by Raka Maitra, These Brief Encounters is the first collaboration between Chowk Productions and Siong Leng Musical Association.

Choreographer: Raka Maitra
Dancers: Sandhya Suresh, Caroline Chin, Anushka Ghosh,
Elizabeth Sergeant Tan, Tan Weiying, Vanessa Toh
Musicians from Siong Leng Musical Association
Production Designer: Muhammad Izdi
Lighting Designer: Stev.e Kwek
