PANGDEMONIUM 2016 SEASON

  • No Comments

What a meaningful way to engage the public on the issue of adult autism and to raise awareness. Tan Kheng Hua is extraordinary in her demanding role as a beleaguered mother. It was funny at times, heart wrenching at others, and beneath it was the very real pain of loving someone who is difficult to love, but whom you cannot give up on because that is just how love is. I walked away realising my mothering struggles were minute in comparison with what some others face, and went home loving my son more. We had a post-show dialogue and so many questions were raised from the audience. This is the real season of love. Love how they displayed not only the love they have for their child, but also the angst, fear and fatigue that are all so, so real. FALLING by Pangdemonium gripped me, drew me into the story, made me cry with many in the audience, and more importantly, made me more aware and empathetic to the struggles faced by caregivers of special needs individuals.

It was such an emotional and moving experience for the three of us, as if we were seeing a day in our life being played out on stage. Wonderful direction by Tracie Pang and stellar performance by the cast, in particular Andrew Marko. Watching Falling evoked a deep sense of familiarity for me as a caregiver. This is a story that needed to be told, and you told it brilliantly. I want to do what I can to make this world a better place and it starts with raising awareness.

Falling is enlightening, heartbreakingly beautiful, emotional, unforgettable and exceptional.

Thank you for putting your heart and soul into telling this beautiful story about unconditional love and the torment, pain and struggles, and hope it brings. Falling is enlightening, heartbreakingly beautiful, emotional, unforgettable and exceptional.

What a meaningful way to engage the public on the issue of adult autism and to raise awareness. Andrew Marko gives a standout performance, a tour de force of character acting…Tan Kheng Hua is the beating heart of the show, and her nuanced performance of a quietly resilient mother will have one biting back tears…Much of what makes Falling so powerful is its authenticity.

Thank you for harnessing the power of theatre to reach out to a larger audience beyond the ASD community. An electrifying and enlightening family drama, Falling examines the meaning of unconditional love, and dares to ask: Yet Falling is not a dark play. I have not felt this – not till tonight. I would like to thank director Tracie Pang, the cast, and everyone in Pangdemonium for helping us broach this almost taboo subject and I pray that such awareness will move people into asking “How can I help?

Love how they displayed not only the love they have for their child, but also the angst, fear and fatigue that are all so, so real.

Young Andrew Marko is quite remarkable in his portrayal of the autistic son – the speech difficulties, facial expressions, motions and gestures common to severe autism have been meticulously adapted into his characterisation of Josh.

It was funny at times, heart wrenching at others, and beneath it was the very real pain of loving someone who is difficult to love, but whom you cannot give up on because that is just how love is.

The subtlety with which they showed the normal, everyday struggles of a family with an autistic family member was nothing short of powerful. It will open your eyes beyond what you think you pangedmonium.

We have a 13 year-old boy with autism. Still recovering from the emotional rollercoaster but truly one of the best theatre experiences yet.

This is a story that needed to be told, 201 you told it brilliantly. Several times during the play, her face is soaked in hot tears.

The cast brilliantly manages to help you laugh even as you are trying to digest the dire circumstances. Wonderful direction by Tracie Pang and stellar performance by the cast, in particular Andrew Marko.

seaskn It is an impressive effort by Pangdemonium and the guest speakers to shed light on a fairly common but poorly understood disorder. Adrian and Tracie Pang, I respect you for the work you do. When this delicate balance is shattered, it literally becomes a matter of life and death for this family. Family pangddemonium is a precarious balancing act revolving around Josh, his routines, his obsessions, and the rigid set of rules that have been created for them to get through each day.

This is the real season of love. Left the theatre with my heart aching and my mind racing.

Equally moving is Adrian Pang as the father torn between loving his son and worrying if the toll of raising him is too great on his marriage and his teenage daughter. And the post-show dialogue was very enlightening. FALLING by Pangdemonium gripped me, drew me into the story, made me cry with many in the audience, and more importantly, made me more aware and empathetic to the struggles faced by caregivers of special needs individuals.

I want to do what I can to make this world a better place and it starts with raising awareness. I am thankful that Pangdemonium has brought this unseen world to the stage in Singapore. Tan Kheng Hua is extraordinary in her demanding role as a beleaguered mother. Yet another amazing production by Pangdemonium. It was such an emotional and moving experience for the three of us, as if we were seeing a day in our life being played out on stage.

Really thankful for a theatre company like Pangdemonium, hope they continue to bring plays that touch the heart, enlighten, inspire, educate, and better society as a whole just as they have made me believe art and theatre can.
