Preview: Last of Their Generation by Bhumi Collective
After their well-received run of Every Brilliant Thing this year, Singapore-based company Bhumi Collective is bringing an all new show to premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it all started for the company.
Inspired by the many solo-shows he watched at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, Bhumi Collective’s Joint Artistic Director Mohamad Shaifulbahri will be taking to the stage in an all new solo-show.
Directed by Adeeb Fazah, Artistic Director of The Second Breakfast Company, with scenography by acclaimed lighting designer Petrina Dawn Tan, Last of Their Generation is a personal show written by Mohamad Shaifulbahri about the various encounters we have with people, places and things in our lives.
Digging deep into the recesses of his memories, he reconnects with the past and what he can remember of the elders in his family, old friends now moved away, the places he grew up in that may or may not still exist, and objects that have stayed untouched yet loved for many years, as he contemplates if he should stay in London or come home for good.
A deeply personal show, Bhumi Collective is the only Singaporean company that will be present at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, so if you happen to be in the UK in August, support the Singapore arts scene and head on up to Edinburgh to catch the world premiere of Last of Their Generation.
Last of Their Generation previews at the Bunker Theatre, London on 20th July. Tickets available here. Bhumi Collective will then be taking the show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 4th -13th August, playing at ZOO Southside (Venue 82), Edinburgh. Tickets available here
