ArtScience Late: Green is the Colour of my Heart by Marc Nair

19 July 2018, Thursday | 8pm
Expression Gallery, Level 4
Free on a first-come-first-served basis. Limited capacity.

Human nature has always sat uneasily within the cycle of the natural world: growth, loss, regeneration and extinction. Yet how we swagger, confident, sheathed in indestructible plastic, offering up the inevitable rituals of a city, heedless of forests losing the shape of their lungs just beyond our vision. We consume, produce what cannot decompose and drive heedless towards the precipice.

Featuring poetry by Marc Nair, music by [.gif] and visuals by Wu Jun Han, Green is the Colour of my Heart is a performance that considers our relationship with nature against the specter of a breaking world. The show is not just about onstage collaboration. One of the pieces, Animus, was crafted together with NUS Dance Synergy, a community of contemporary dancers committed to refining their craft through exploration and experimentation.

Tucked in between dark beats, deft lyricism and immersive vocals lies Singaporean indie-electronic duo .gif. Made up of weish and din, the pair started out in late 2012 as a passion project and shared hobby.

The pair often draws from literature, theatre and film in their music, and recently launched a critically acclaimed full-length album, soma.
