Leakage(s) and Anticoagulants: An Unflinching Exploration of Morality16 Sep 2017
'As a semi-surrealist play, Leakage(s) and Anticoagulants does a great job at balancing both the realist, narrative scenes and the psychological explorations of Raskolnikov’s mind. A chorus of eight (Desmond Soh, Henrik Cheng, Regina Foo, Shirley Tan, Sonia Kwek, Teo Dawn, Uma Katju, Wong Yunjie) represents the inner workings of Raskolnikov’s psyche, sharing their doubts, manipulating and urging her on throughout the play. At times at odds with one another, the chorus reflects Raskolnikov’s inner conflict, as she is torn between confessing her crime and keeping silent while an innocent Mikolai (Saran Jith) is convicted in her place.
What struck me the most was the sheer physicality of the performance – director Alberto Ruiz Lopez has crafted riveting movement sequences that bring out the potential of his students, particularly the eight-actor chorus.'
