One Table Many Chairs

Southernmost is the Singapore stop for the international cultural exchange circuit which happens throughout the year, which begun with the One Table Two Chairs movement pioneered by Danny Yung. 

The concept of "One Table Two Chairs" originates in Chinese opera, where it once was a standardized form of set design. Different arrangements of the furniture onstage would represent different settings, scenes and characters.

Today, the format has evolved into an experimental platform adopted by artists to engage in cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue.

A voyage all over the world- Leading up to each Southernmost, Emergency Stairs, and participating masters for Southernmost participate in these international exchange festivals in different cities, presented by prominent arts organisations, taking the dialogue and exchange all over the world.
