What constitutes the Singapore Dream? Is it an emulation of the American Dream, whose fundamental ethos connotes freedom, equal opportunity and upward mobility, regardless of whether you’re a native or an immigrant?

Singapore Dream captures migrant workers in a different light. The series contrasts the dreams and reality of migrant workers, while challenging our perspectives and pre-conceived understanding. The workers from the series are mostly from the construction and building industry, but also include domestic helpers. Singapore Dream will showcase migrant workers in a humanistic approach through a performative and collaborative process; to empower them, not marginalize them, to understand them, not ostracize them.
