The Way Back is the Right Way Forward

About this Event

Reversing Blake's narrative, from the world of experience to the world of innocence, art collective Pathfinder explores the emotional journey of redemption. Through the poetry of Felix Cheong, set to an evocative soundscape by Jasmin Patel, this performance will open your eyes - and ears - to how words find resonance and radiance in music.

Felix Cheong is the author of 15 books, including five volumes of poetry, two young adult novels, a trilogy of flash fiction and three children’s picture books. His works have been nominated for the prestigious Frank O’Connor Award and the Singapore Literature Prize.

Conferred the Young Artist of the Year for Literature in 2000 by the National Arts Council, Felix has been invited to read at writers’ festivals all over the world: Edinburgh, West Cork, Austin, Sydney, Brisbane, Christchurch and Ubud. As part of musical art collective Osmosis (together with Mervyn Wong and Natalie Ng), he has performed at the Lit Up Festival, Singapore Writers Festival and Textures Festival.

Jasmin Patel has been composing and performing music since the age of 15. Her song has been selected as a finalist for the NEA ECO Music Challenge 2013. She has also performed at the NOISE showcase 2010 and the BUBBLEGUM YEARS 2011 with band Catalogue V as their keyboardist. She has also composed music for theatre plays (such as Ubu Roi). As a Producer/DJ, she has contributed at VLV as resident DJ, ITSATRAP (a monthly Zouk night) and Negombo Music Festival (Srilanka) to name a few.

Having graduated from GoldSmith’s University with BA (Hons) in Music and an MA in Arts Pedagogy and Practice, Jasmin pushes her boundaries by crossing genres of music by collaborating with artistes in Film, Visual Arts, Dance and Theatre.
