A man faces an insurmountable task - doomed day after day to fail. Another is chosen - wholly unable to reject the call of destiny. Amongst four, a cycle of punishment where there is no escape. Three narratives are woven not in words, but in contorted bodies - flesh bearing the pain of being, repeating, and of breaking the cycle of living.
Directed by Nicole-Ann Thomas, director of Boh Cameronian "Best of 2017" nominee THE PILLOWMAN and more recently THE WORKING DEAD, a new musical by Terence Toh, DYSFORIA a is physical theatre best experienced up close, a brutal mix of movement and music that asks the audience what they are really living for.
