Preview: Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons by Adeeb & Shai
From the minds of Adeeb Fazah (The Second Breakfast Company) and Mohamad ‘Shai’ Shaifulbahri (Bhumi Collective) comes an all new collaboration, simply titled Adeeb & Shai.
The director/producer duo have worked together on projects with both their respective companies, alongside Yellow Chair Productions. With this new venture, they will attempt to seek out even more stories from around the world, with a smaller cast size but nonetheless, still important to our times. In their debut production this April, they’ll be presenting Sam Steiner’s critically acclaimed Fringe work Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons at the Aliwal Arts Centre.
Lemons imagines a fictitious world where a gag law has been imposed by the government, limiting each person to a mere 140 words per day. As young couple Oliver and Bernadette navigate this new reality, and learn that it’s not what we say, it’s how we say it, encountering dead cats, activism, eye contact and lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons.
Premiering for the very first time in Singapore, Lemons will star Tia Guttensohn and Jamil Schulze, addressing issues of disconnection in a time of increased connectivity. More relevant than ever in a time where social media is the only way we communicate with our peers, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons will flip your idea of words and language on its head, and marks an ambitious and exciting start of this official new collaboration.
Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons plays at the Aliwal Arts Centre Multi-purpose Hall from 4th – 7th April. Tickets available here
