Gooey stories of Singaporean horror

Melbourne Fringe award-winner Shannan Lim and his spook buddies Jayde Harding and Tye Norman vomit three short, intertwining plays.

Salty presents contemporary slants on the lurid demons of Singaporean-Malay mythology. Accompanied by neat video projections, it features a curious stillborn fetus, a slippery oily man nobody can catch, and a smouldering sex vampire looking for somebody to impregnate her.

In Singaporean folklore, salt is the currency of the afterlife.

This production continues on from the acclaimed Asian Ghost-ery Store, part of Summer Nights 2016, in a series of works that looks at both the lightness and darkness around cultural identity.

“Intelligent, witty and challenging in turns… an excellent piece of theatre.” **** The Age (Asian Ghost-ery Store)

“Lim is a very physical performer whose sense of humour and timing catches us off guard.” Perth Arts Live
