The story of REFUGE, carried out by Singapore-based, Malaysian actor and theatre artist Pavan J. Singh, asks the viewers to grapple with the reality of who refugees really are – folks with youngsters whose heights are marked on door frames, homeowners of companies handed down from father to son, true loves found in the middle of on a regular basis errands. It powerfully challenges the standpoint that refugees in search of asylum is a “difficult situation.” 

Coming from Southeast Asia all the best way to the Hollywood Fringe, Singh’s intent is to make clear a world disaster. He’s been performing the present since December of 2016 to attempt to do exactly that. His efficiency is tender, entertaining and, in moments, heartbreaking. 

My hope is that you’ll discover time to see this present, supporting his mission to teach and breed compassion for these whose solely alternative is to run.
