10 Sep - 6 Oct 2019 | Miaja Gallery
You arrive at an art gallery.
You order a bespoke cocktail from a pop-up bar by Lulu’s Lounge.
Soon you’re chatting with new friends.
You take in a specially curated exhibition.
And then, you meet the fugitive, Lin Bo:
a Chinese dissident
who survived two years in a detention center.
His crime? A work of art.
You are now Lin’s captive audience member;
the only way his story can live on.
Your evening is just beginning.
Welcome to CAUGHT,
SRT’s ground-breaking socially-immersive experience,
where the play is the party, and the party is the play.
Complete your CAUGHT experience with:
Bespoke cocktails crafted by Lulu's Lounge,
Singapore's most intriguing and innovative nightclub scene
& Scandinavian hotdogs from Fung Kee (豐記) Hotdogs.
Available at Miaja Gallery during performances of CAUGHT.
“You’ve read the New Yorker article.
You’ve heard all of your artist friends talk about him.
Now you can hear Chinese dissident artist Lin Bo speak
about the work that got him jailed back home.”
- Los Angeles Times Critics’ Pick
Within a regime that smothers free speech and gives breath to fake news, one voice dared to speak the truth. But, there are two sides to every story; and, when the stakes are survival, who’s to judge what’s fact, and what’s fiction?
Anointed by The New Yorker as our generation’s most subversive performance artist, Lin Bo became an international media sensation after his escape from captivity. In honour of his release, SRT commissioned Drama Desk award-winning director Ed Sylvanus Iskandar to create an immersive evening, featuring an exclusively curated art exhibition. Now a fugitive, Lin will travel to Singapore to give a mystery performance, using text created by OBIE award-winner Christopher Chen, which he describes as: “The idea itself is the art.”
Enter a labyrinth where reality and fantasy blend into an incisively funny, mind-bending, and compulsively addictive experience where things are not as they first appear.
Never stop questioning the truth.
Never stop questioning the story.
How far down the rabbit hole are you prepared to go?
“Part immersive theatre, part performance art,
part installation, part thrust theatre,
part food and drinks, and pure play,
this exhilarating look into
politics, propaganda, and
perception is pocked with paradox.”
