[PERFORMANCE] Pazhuppu by Hypokrite (Ravindran Drama Group)

Description

Labels – we are all defined by them. Yet to what extent are these labels preconceived, how much can we alter them and how ready is a society to accept one who deviates from the norm?

The story of Logan, Vimala and Arun is more than just a coming-of-age story. Centred on the Singapore-Tamil diaspora, Pazhuppu (translated as “Brown”) explores the impact of a society fraught with the labels of culture, gender and class. This is a quest for power, liberation, progress and acceptance.

This is a quest for an identity that is more than skin deep.
