As we march onwards to July, TheatreWorks is thrilled to present a brand new work – The Roundest Circle by Eng Kai Er, Faye Lim and Felicia Lim!
Straying from the norm is the norm for TheatreWorks Associate Artist Eng Kai Er. Kai shares about the Associate Artist programme “the open-ness of the Associate-ship allows us (Faye, Felicia and I) to explore what we are interested in, without pre-determining any theme that we should base ourselves off. It has been a very luxurious period of investigation, conversation and of course, dancing too!”
In her latest work, Kai, Faye and Felicia challenge themselves by breaking all structure and taking out a key figure – the ‘leader’ from their decision making process. With no designated leader, they perform simultaneous leading and following, sharing and giving up physical and creative space.
What will be the outcome? Is the absence of a leader possible in making a performance?
Join us in this journey of discovery with Kai, Faye and Felicia as they venture into the undiscovered and the unchartered.

The Roundest Circle marks Kai’s third full production with TheatreWorks, after INDULGENCE (2015) and She Ain’t Heavy, She’s Reaching Into Space (2016), as part of her Associate-ship. TheatreWorks believes it is crucial to extend support to independent artists and does so through its Associate Artist Programme – a long-term platform to nurture and build the creative capacity of performance makers. It is a platform to enable artists to create boundary-pushing works. Past associates include Choy Ka Fai, Joavien Ng, Vertical Submarine and Charles Lim.
TheatreWorks Associate Artists have access to resources and opportunities for artistic research and for developing their works. We intend to constantly build on our circle of Associates, and in developing them, we grow and develop the Singapore arts ecosystem.
