Little Red Comma by NAC
Singapore fiction, reimagined. little red comma takes you between the lines of paragraphs and verses, in the digital space where you could see the ocean as an ant, think twice about your supermarket consumption, or bear the virtual weight of a kavadi. The project fuses Singapore fiction with new media, comprising digital adaptations of six diverse literary works that span the genres of poetry and short fiction, featuring writers Arthur Yap, Latha, Melissa De Silva, Mohamed Latiff Mohamed, Samuel Lee and Yeng Pway Ngon. Commissioned by the National Arts Council, little red comma is produced by digital publisher Tusitala and presented by Esplanade.
The first work in the series is Kavadi by Latha, a story translated from Tamil to English, which follows the story of Alyssa, who is left with her grandparents on Pulau Ubin as a child and her experience with devastating loss as an adult.
