The Necessary Stage is proud to present The Year of No Return — a groundbreaking interdisciplinary collaboration with artists from Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore—commissioned by the Singapore International Festival of the Arts (SIFA).
The Year of No Return brings our ailing planet to the forefront, by seeking to unravel the complications and contradictions in humanity’s responses to climate change. Through incorporating live performance and video presentation, the work seeks to question whether we live in an age of despair—or one of hope in the dark.
Can we as individuals, and collectively, affect change? Or will politics and profit dictate the fate of this planet — our only home?
