Tentang Kami

Both Sides, Now

Both Sides, Now is an arts-based community engagement project about what it means to live well, and leave well. Dying is a natural part of life, but many of us are afraid to talk about it. What are our options, if we want to die with dignity?

Both Sides, Now ialah sebuah projek penglibatan masyarakat yang mengetengahkan isu-isu akhir hayat. Kematian itu adalah lumrah hidup, tetapi ramai di antara kita yang tidak selesa untuk membicarakannya. Apakah pilihan kita jika kita inginkan akhir hayat yang sempurna? 

How can we plan for the end, regardless of our age? How can we talk to our loved ones about our values and choices?

Bagaimana pula perancangan kita untuk menempuh akhir garisan kehidupan, tanpa mengira usia? Dapatkah kita berbincang dengan orang tersayang mengenai kemahuan dan keputusan kita?

Highlights across the years

Sorotan aktiviti sepanjang tahun

2013

It began with an immersive arts experience at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, designed to create awareness, encourage reflection and provoke end-of-life conversations among healthcare professionals, caregivers and the general public.

Visitors encountered artworks largely in the main foyer, which comprised a large-scale installation, short films, participatory artworks and performances which took place outdoors at the boardwalk.

Semuanya bermula dengan sebuah pengalaman seni di Hospital Khoo Teck Puat yang dirancang untuk mewujudkan kesedaran, menggalakkan renungan dan mencetuskan perbualan akhir hayat di kalangan pakar penjagaan kesihatan, penjaga dan masyarakat umum. 

Para pengunjung dapat melihat karya-karya seni yang sebahagian besarnya dipamerkan di ruang legar utama. Ia terdiri daripada pemasangan berskala besar, filem-filem pendek, karya seni partisipatif dan persembahan yang berlangsung di pelantar laluan luaran.

2014

We headed to the public heartlands of Khatib and Toa Payoh and invited people to explore and delve into the topics of living and dying.

These were experienced through fun and creative approaches, such as participatory arts activities, dialogues, film, a forum theatre play Exit and a puppetry show The Wind Came Home.

Kami beralih ke estet perumahan awam Khatib dan Toa Payoh dan mengundang orang ramai untuk meneroka dan mendalami topik-topik tentang kehidupan dan kematian.

Ini dilakukan melalui pendekatan yang menyeronokkan dan kreatif, seperti aktiviti seni partisipatif, dialog, filem, persembahan teater forum Exit dan persembahan boneka The Wind Came Home.

A Public Art Installation took place around Chong Pang, encouraging viewers to reflect, and explore end-of-life related topics and its significance to residents from the neighbourhood.

A community-centric approach was applied because we wanted to deepen our level of engagement over a longer period of time. Chong Pang and Telok Blangah were the two chosen neighbourhoods and we collaborated with community partners Yishun Health (Wellness Kampung) and Montfort Care Good Life! respectively. 

These neighborhoods were engaged biannually, through pop-up installations, performances and participatory activities. 80 residents were invited to reflect on end-of-life topics, and its significance to them, through workshops facilitated by artists over a duration of 3 – 6 months. Their artistic responses culminated in a unique Public Art Installation in Chong Pang (2018) and Telok Blangah (2019) held at their neighbourhoods’ void decks and common spaces, where a variety of artworks were showcased, such as films, posters, murals and installations.

Plays from the previous editions of Both Sides, Now were re-worked and staged in both communities over the years, and an original participatory performance Last Dance made its debut. Free talks and workshops were provided for those interested to learn more about end-of-life issues, from medical and legal concerns, to learning practical skills on how to broach these conversations with their loved ones.

The grand finale in Telok Blangah was a Both Sides, Now carnival with a plethora of activities and events, for every generation!

Pendekatan berpusatkan masyarakat telah diterapkan kerana kami ingin memperdalamkan tahap penglibatan kami untuk jangka masa yang lebih panjang. Chong Pang dan Telok Blangah ialah dua buah kawasan kejiranan yang dipilih dan kami bergabung dengan rakan-rakan masyarakat di Yishun Health (Wellness Kampung) dan Montfort Care Good Life!

Penglibatan di dua kawasan kejiranan ini berlangsung setiap dua tahun, melalui pemasangan pop-up, persembahan dan aktiviti partisipatif. 80 orang penduduk diundang untuk merenung tentang topik akhir hayat dan kepentingannya kepada mereka, melalui bengkel yang dimudahkan oleh para artis selama 3 - 6 bulan.

Respons artistik mereka dikumpulkan untuk dijadikan sebuah Pemasangan Seni Awam di kolong blok dan ruang awam di kawasan kejiranan Chong Pang (2018) dan Telok Blangah (2019), di mana pelbagai karya seni dipamerkan, seperti filem, poster, mural dan pemasangan. 

Persembahan dari edisi Both Sides, Now yang lepas diolah semula dan dipentaskan di kedua-dua kejiranan sepanjang beberapa tahun, dan sebuah persembahan partisipatif asal berjudul Last Dance membuat kemunculan sulungnya.

Ceramah dan bengkel percuma disediakan untuk mereka yang berminat untuk mempelajari lebih banyak tentang isu-isu akhir hayat dari sudut masalah perubatan dan perundangan, dan juga untuk mempelajari kemahiran praktikal mengenai cara untuk memulakan perbualan ini dengan orang-orang tersayang.

Acara kemuncak yang berlangsung di Telok Blangah merupakan karnival Both Sides, Now dengan pelbagai aktiviti dan acara untuk setiap generasi!

Pesanan daripada Pasukan Artistik

Both Sides, Now is a project on normalising conversations about end-of-life. Since 2013, we have created many artistic projects that engage the public to think about how one may live and die well. Over the last 8 years, we have engaged the public at hospitals, town centres, senior homes and HDB void decks.

Yet we are deeply aware that so far we have mainly reached out to the Chinese community with little participation from the other ethnic groups.

Many of our Malay friends have told us that there is a need to have such conversations within the community. So we decided to embark on research to see if the wider community agrees that there is this need, and if so, what kind of conversations should they be? We also asked ourselves how should our artistic approach be in order to engage the Malay community. 

A very enriching journey ensued, starting with interviews with stakeholders and professionals, followed by workshops with different demographics of the Malay community. Stories were shared, questions were asked, and many of the interviewees talked about the importance of having a safe space for these conversations. We have engaged ethnographic researchers to analyse these rich materials, which gave us much food for thought, many important issues to deal with, and importantly, allowed us to create the works that you are seeing now, grounded and multi-faceted.

The journey so far has unearthed the desire within the community to have dialogues about the issues pertaining to end-of-life. But at the same time, there seems to be an inertia and also a fear within families, across generations, about how to start this conversation. 

To help with this, the form chosen from an artistic perspective would have to deal with these difficult topics in an engaging manner and create opportunities for exchange. The wish to bridge conversations has led us to choosing the familiar format of the variety show, in which audiences are invited to be a part of the conversation, resulting in the Kata-Kata Kita variety show. As part of our lineup, we have Radio Dukacita, a "radio" show where people can write or call in to share letters that they have addressed to the ones they have lost. Also featured is Sukar (Melepaskan), a story about a family dealing with end-of-life issues, told over 3 short episodes à la Sandiwara style. A discussion panel comes right after each episode, where issues that were highlighted can be discussed with experts from the Malay-Muslim community on law, palliative care and social work. We hope to alleviate the resistance to having these conversations by acknowledging these issues in an entertaining and relatable manner.

In a nutshell, that is what we hope to achieve with Both Sides, Now: Mengukir Harapan. “Mengukir Harapan” means carving hope...we hope to carve a space for connection and hope, so that we not only live well, but when the time comes to leave, we leave well too.

Both Sides, Now: Mengukir Harapan ialah projek yang bertujuan untuk melazimkan perbualan tentang isu-isu akhir hayat. Sejak 2013, kami telah melaksanakan pelbagai projek seni yang mendekati masyarakat umum. Sepanjang 8 tahun yang lepas, kami telah mendekati masyarakat di hospital, daerah pertengahan estet-estet awam, rumah warga emas dan di kolong-kolong blok HDB.

Namun, kami akui bahawa setakat ini, kami hanya dapat menjangkau masyarakat Cina sahaja tanpa penglibatan daripada kaum-kaum yang lain.

“Ramai rakan Melayu kami telah mengesyorkan keperluan untuk mempertengahkan topik sebegini dalam masyarakat. Oleh itu, kami mengambil keputusan untuk melakukan penyelidikan dan melihat jika masyarakat umum setuju akan keperluan ini, dan jika demikian, apa jenis perbualan yang seharusnya dilaksanakan? Kami juga berbincang bagaimana pendekatan seni kami seharusnya dilakukan untuk mendekati masyarakat Melayu.”

Perjalanan kami bermula dengan wawancara dengan pihak berkepentingan dan pakar-pakar dari pelbagai bidang. Ia diikuti dengan bengkel bersama masyarakat Melayu daripada demografi berlainan. Cerita dikongsi, soalan diajukan, dan ramai yang ditemuramah membincangkan mengenai kepentingan mempunyai ruang yang selamat untuk perbualan ini. Kami telah bekerjasama dengan penyelidik etnografi untuk menganalisis bahan-bahan penting ini yang memberi kami pengalaman yang lebih luas. Dengan cara ini, kami telah dapat melakukan program karya seni yang akan dibentangkan secara dimensi sepenuhnya.

Setakat ini, kami telah mendapati inspirasi masyarakat untuk berdialog mengenai isu-isu akhir hayat. Pada masa yang sama, terdapat inersia dan juga kebimbangan di antara keluarga yang melintasi generasi tentang cara untuk memulakan perbincangan ini.

Perspektif karya seni untuk menangani topik sukar sebegini agar ia menarik sambil mewujudkan peluang untuk berdialog amatlah penting. Kami didorong untuk menggunakan format akrab rancangan hiburan di mana penonton berpeluang untuk mengambil bahagian dalam perbincangan ini. Hasilnya ialah rancangan bertajuk Kata-Kata Kita! Kami mempamerkan Radio Dukacita, rancangan “radio” di mana orang awam boleh menulis ataupun memanggil dalam talian untuk berkongsi cerita tentang kehilangan. Sukar (Melepaskan) ialah cerita tentang keluarga yang menghadapi isu-isu mengenai akhir hayat dan dipamerkan melalui 3 episod pendek à la gaya Sandiwara. Perbincangan panel akan berlangsung selepas setiap episod dan isu-isu yang diketengahkan sewaktu episod itu akan dibincangkan oleh pakar dari masyarakat Melayu-Islam. Mereka merangkumi pelbagai bidang seperti undang-undang, penjagaan paliatif dan kerja sosial. Harapan kami agar perbincangan  isu-isu sensitif akhir hayat ini dapat dilakukan dengan cara yang santai.

Itulah harapan kami untuk dicapai melalui Both Sides, Now: Mengukir Harapan! Dengan melazimkan perbualan mengenai topik akhir hayat, harapan kami untuk memberi ruang untuk kita sama-sama saling berkomunikasi dan memahami isu ini, agar kita boleh hidup aman sejahtera. Bila tibanya masa akhir hayat, pemergian kita diharap akan sempurna.

Founded in 1990, Drama Box is a non-profit company known for creating theatre that inspires dialogue, reflection and change. A big part of Drama Box’s work is in bringing theatre to the community so that everyone can have the means to access and participate. By shining a spotlight on marginalised narratives and making space for the communal contemplation of complex issues, they seek to tell stories that provoke a deeper understanding of Singapore’s culture, history and identity.

It also conducts and shares research that builds legitimacy for the arts-based community development field. Our case studies and articles can be found on our website.

Ad Maulod is a cultural anthropologist and Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Ageing Research and Education, Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore. 

Ad trains and leads a team of qualitative researchers using culture-centred approaches to explore the key determinants of meaningful and healthy ageing in Singapore. Ad’s research with older persons across different communities in Singapore examines the centrality of ‘placemaking’ in the development of age-in-place models in the community, particularly in the integration of care. Through a deeper engagement in these processes, Ad hopes to advance the development of research, policies and care-models that enhance health equity, social inclusion and community empowerment for older persons in Singapore.

Ad Maulod ialah seorang pakar antropologi budaya dan seorang Zamil Penyelidik Kanan di Pusat Penyelidikan dan Pendidikan Penuaan di Sekolah Perubatan Duke-NUS, Singapura.

Ad melatih dan mengetuai sebuah pasukan penyelidik kualitatif menggunakan pendekatan berpusatkan budaya, untuk meneroka penentu utama penuaan yang bermakna dan sihat di Singapura. Penyelidikan Ad dengan warga tua antara pelbagai komuniti di Singapura ini mengkaji keutamaan pembentukan tempat atau ‘placemaking’ dalam pembangunan model penuaan dalam komuniti, terutamanya penyepaduan penjagaan. Melalui penglibatan yang lebih mendalam dalam proses ini, Ad berharap untuk memajukan pengembangan penyelidikan, model dasar dan penjagaan yang meningkatkan keseteraan kesihatan, keterangkuman sosial dan peperkasaan masyarakat untuk warga tua di Singapura.
