Millie is a working-class woman who has strange dreams, or rather, one strange, long and continuous dream that lets her meet-up with mermaids and monsters, all living in one house, in the middle of a valley...
The work was supported by the Singapore National Arts Council's Art Creation Fund (2010). It is currently going re-writing and editing. I hope to present it in 2015.
