Thwayya faces the loss of her family farm after 5 generations of tending the land. Violet’s ancestors were custodians of that land for over 75,000 years, but she left home long ago.

Meanwhile, Tsuet-Cheng is returning from Sydney to Singapore for “Tomb Sweeping Day”, a ritual in which families visit cemeteries to talk with their ancestors.

These three women don’t know each other – but when two skeletons are discovered in the dried-up creek bed of a remote Queensland farm, their fates become deeply intertwined.

A hauntingly beautiful blend of music, dance, film, design and dialogue, 宿 (stay) is built on the real-life experiences of the artists. From a densely packed Singapore housing block to the vast Tagalaka country of outback Australia, 宿 (stay) delicately unearths buried trauma and fragile connections that lie at the heart of contemporary life.

Part concert, part story, part ceremony, 宿 (stay) is an evocative new work created by Western Sydney company Kurinji, its co-founder/writer S. Shakthidharan (Counting and Cracking, Sydney Festival 2019) and renowned Singaporean musical ensemble, SAtheCollective.  

Duration: 70 minutes
