Esplanade Annexe Studio
Haunted corridors and toilet cubicles... every school has its fair share of urban myths and ghost stories, passed down carefully over generations. Beyond the paranormal, what are some other visible and invisible ways in which fear is being manifested within the school compounds?
Directed by Han Xuemei, recipient of the Young Artist Award 2021, Assembly follows Sha, Cydnee and Joe, three teenage students with their own struggles in school. Besides keeping up with grades and dealing with peer pressure, something strange is also happening in the art room...
Content warning: Assembly covers issues related to suicide and bullying that may cause discomfort to certain individuals.
Assembly is presented as part of Esplanade’s Feed Your Imagination (F.Y.I).
