CHAOS final poster.jpg

JUNE 2023



Someone is locked in a room. Someone brings someone else flowers. Someone has tied themselves to a railing. Someone doesn’t know who they are. Someone worries about impending catastrophe. Someone jumps in front of a train. Someone’s heart falls out of their chest. A butterfly has a broken wing.

Brought to life by Conundrum Theatre's Impact Collective (an ensemble of 12-15 year olds), Chaos is a symphony of dislocated and interconnected scenes. A series of characters search for meaning in a complicated and unstable world. Bouncing through physics, the cosmos, love, and violence, they find order in the disorder of each other.


3rd and 4th June at Inspired Arts, 11 Sam Leong Road, Singapore.

Part survival tale, part psychological horror, and part coming of age drama, I Still Have No Friends is the darkly humorous story of the teenage survivors of a nuclear bomb that exploded while they were attending an International Youth Leadership Conference. 

Set against the backdrop of global and political unrest, the young survivors of I Still Have No Friends must work together to build society anew. Can they do it? Or will the combination of complex personalities, lack of resources, and fragility of power bring them all crashing down?

Will anyone survive in this post-apocalyptic world? Or will the young people discover that, even at the end of the world, they still have no friends?

Investigating themes of power, relationships, community, corruption, mental health and the supernatural, I Still Have No Friends explores whether humans can truly get along, or if our primal and inherent instinct is to covet power and control, no matter the cost. Are we destined to hurt each other to prove our superiority? Or can we act with kindness? What is the world we want to live in?

Show Duration: 60 minutes

2020 Adelaide Fringe Festival 

In the near future two beings meet in a bunker. Robot? Human? Hybrid? Appliance?  


Imagine, if you can, a future of driverless cars and talking appliances. When AI rule our lives and the lines are blurred and rules don’t matter. When humans love robots. Laugh til your battery dies, weep until you rust as we ponder life, the universe, and Artificial Intelligence. 


We can learn. We can unlearn. We are not only human. We are machines.

2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival 


Goddess On A Highway was an original work, devised by the SAYarts' On The Fringe Ensemble, that investigates the nature of power, control and corruption in the world using the theme of Cults. 


We all want to belong, and Devereaux, lost and confused, has finally found her place amongst 'The Children' in a welcoming commune, a perfect setting. Paradise. Or is it? 


An exhilarating and, sometimes, chilling work that interrogated power and corruption the modern world through the lens of cults.

2018 Adelaide Fringe Festival 

I Still Have No Friends is a contemporary reworking of William Golding’s Lord Of The Flies, set against the backdrop of global and political unrest.   

We live in a world in turmoil : Bushfires, floods, droughts, climate catastrophe on a global scale, pandemics, wars, walls, lies, insurrection, impeachment trials, poverty, racism, bigotry, hatred.


I Still Have No Friends is a piece of theatre that asks its audience to look at the world around them and challenges them to make a change. It’s a work that asks, in 2020, are we all just living in one big Lord Of The Flies? Are we destined to all kill each other to prove our superiority? Or can we act with kindness? What is the world that you want to live in?

2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival 


Everybody Dies was devised by SAYarts’ On The Fringe ensemble and was a response to their fears that antivaxxer culture could lead to a global medical calamity. Using absurdism, farce, satire, slapstick and lots of pus, plague, and pox, Everybody Dies asked the audience to believe in science, to vaccinate and to wash their hands.
