On the last day of October, MoonShadow Stories shares stories from the supernatural genre. Traditional Malay folk story figures like the bomoh (witch doctor), toyol (poltergeist) and orang minyak (a spirit being) will come alive on this night of All Hallows Eve ...
We are not the first to walk this land.
Before us were our ancestors and other beings, good and evil.
And if you look hard enough, traces of them still exist today…
MoonShadow Stories invites you to listen to four stories about how a piece of land somewhere in Singapore becomes cursed and how the curse reveals itself through the centuries.
Tales of toyols, orang minyak, and ghosts. Tales of the dark, the unseen and the inexplicable. Tales of black magic, utter evil and pure terror.
So make a date with MoonShadow Stories for an evening of intimate storytelling if you wish for chills of fear to run up and down your spine on the night of All Hallows Eve…
This storytelling performance is strictly for audience members aged 16 and above.
This storytelling performance is based on Verena Tay’s short story, ‘The Land’, published in Spectre: Stories from Dark to Light (Singapore: Math Paper Press, 2012). The book will be available for sale at the performance.
Tanah Pusaka: Haunting Tales of a Land Possessed is made possible by the kind support of The Arts House, the National Arts Council and the Arts Fund.
