NUS Centre For the Arts unveils a new staging of Complicité UK’s exquisite, internationally acclaimed play about love, math, and how the past and future connect.

In 1913, a clerk in rural India named Srinivasa Ramanujan sends a letter to famed mathematician G. H. Hardy, filled with astonishing mathematical theorems. In the present, a math professor and a businessman fall in love. Winner of the 2007 Critics’ Circle Theatre, Evening Standard, and Laurence Olivier awards for Best New Play, the play blends the beauty of everyday relationships with the mysticism of the cosmos in a fascinating whirlwind of vignettes spanning history and time. This extraordinary work of visual and physical theatre will be directed by award-winning director Edith Podesta (Dark Room, Bitch: The Origin of the Female Species, The Golden Record) and feature Remesh Panicker (The Merchant of Venice), Koh Wan Ching (Mortal Sole) and Pavan J Singh (Chinatown Crossings) alongside the creative talents of Brian Gothong Tan, Teo Wee Boon and Suven Chan with students from NUS Stage. 

A Disappearing Number by Complicité. Originally conceived and directed by Simon McBurney. Devised by the original company. Performance made possible by kind permission of Complicité, London, complicite.org

Edith Podesta will also be part of a panel ‘Rhythms and Patterns in Performance’ on 28 Feb at NUS Museum.
