Listen to the call of the wild in A Grand Design, an audio experience read by environmentalist and educator Cheyenne Alexandria Phillips that will reconnect you with nature.
Directed and dramaturged by Chen Yingxuan, with sound design by Shah Tahir, this lecture-performance will take you on a remarkable journey with Cheyenne as she recounts her hilarious misadventures in the environmental sector — from dangers posed by strawberry red frogs, snakes with hook-like teeth, to Homo Sapiens: the species that really should know better.
Witty, charming, and insightful, A Grand Design is a passionate examination of how we love, or fail to love, the natural world around us.
The audio experience of A Grand Design is produced and presented by Checkpoint Theatre. Look out for the live staging of the work in the coming months, in Checkpoint Theatre’s collaboration with NUS Centre for the Arts and Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum.

“But what makes this experience valuable are the surprisingly profound insights that one gains from her observations. In the last segment, what starts off as an explanation of a well-known event unexpectedly evolved into a meditation of life, survival, existence, and death.”Isaac Tan
