Where Have All The Flowers Gone? explores our heritage as God’s people, legacies of allotted portions and inheritance. The storytellers : a book cutter, a seal maker, a Chinese xiao player, a folk singer, and a writer hunting down the love story of her Peranakan grandmother.
“Where Have All the Flowers Gone? is an honest and deeply stirring production with a deceptively simple format. The stories of the individual artists and their journeys of faith and art couldn’t be more different, but they blend together into a sublime whole. At parts heart-wrenching, at parts disturbing, at parts soothing, the show bids us to look into our own stories and faith journeys and find meaning in our past to shape our future.” Favian Ee, illustrator
“I found The Group’s performance very intimate and emotive. The show’s rhythm and flow of going from each heartfelt storytelling to the beautifully raw feel of folk music gave me time and space to soak in the words. I went away feeling emotionally connected with the performers.” Emily Lim, author
“Thank you so much for the intimate time of sharing, storytelling and remembering. I found the show to be a very nourishing time and was edified by what was conveyed. I am at a point in my journey as an art-maker where I needed to be reminded of certain truths and was encouraged by what I took away from the performance.” Ethel Yap, actress, songwriter
