She appears confident and bubbly, yet Shu An is uncertain of who she really is. All she knows is that she experiences flashes of clarity and insight that swiftly disappear – or, as she terms them, “unicorn moments”. As she delves into her past through interviews with people who have shaped her, Shu An hopes to translate her experiences from these pivotal milestones into a collection of life lessons.

Combining the craft of theatre with the immediacy of the Internet, #UnicornMoment kicked off with a series of online video podcasts in March 2014. These then culminated in a live theatre show, presented by Checkpoint Theatre, written and performed by Oon Shu An.

Directed by Huzir Sulaiman and Shiv Tandan, #UnicornMoment is a courageous and honest exploration of what it means to find happiness, meaning and your own way in life, amidst the push and pull of outside voices and societal standards.
