Present Past (Cultural Extravaganza 2023)

Present Past brings together the characters from different timelines and awakens them in this interdimensional space. Will the future be altered by the past or is the present simply a reflection of the future?

Present Past explores the values from the past, the present and finding the meaning of the future through self-discovery. By visiting these parallel timelines of past and present, the music theatrical production Present Past creates an imaginative space for you to redefine your future.

Featuring local ruan musician Neil Chua as Muso, Bharatanatyam dancer Sarenniya Ramathas as Nymph and up-and-coming Cantonese opera star Gary Ong as Scribe in a unique conversation as they unravel their stories in this erratic dimension. Present Past is an original production directed by experienced theatre director, Jeffrey Tan and produced by RuanAtWorkz Musical Arts with Neil Chua as the Artistic Director.

Presented by: Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre
Produced by: RuanAtWorkz Musical Arts (R.A.W.)
