Frission is a local A cappella band founded by Chase Rodrigues and consists of 4 other original members, Ong Jun Da, Yasira Hanan, Hadi Sudir and Umar Sirhan. They cover songs across many genres, mainly RnB, Soul, Pop, and Electronic Music. The name “Frission” is a pseudo marriage of two words, “Phrygian” as in the musical mode, and “Frisson”, which basically means goosebumps. The group touts unique arrangements inspired by the likes of Ariana Grande, Pentatonix, Thirdstory and Charlie Lim to name a few. Having debuted earlier this year at the Esplanade concourse, Frission is looking forward to more performances as spaces continue to open in the coming months.

The Runaway Co.

The Runaway Company is a non-profit collective run by youths for youths. Here at TRC, we believe in the power of music and theatre in telling stories that often go untold. We hope that we can create a space that feels safe for youths to make art, regardless of who they are, where they come from or where they go from here.

Alysha Rahmat Shah

Alysha (b. 1995) is a Singaporean visual artist with a BA(Hons) in Fine Arts from Lasalle College of the Arts. Although she is a Printmaker who specializes in the art of Lithography, she now works in collaboration with other mixed media pieces such as embroidery, experimentation with textiles and installations.

Conceptually her works center around South-East Asian myth, mythology and mysticism. She creates works and embroideries that explore themes pertinent to the supernatural realm. Expressing her affinity for metaphysical conception through her work, she allows for her audience to view this representation through her perceptions and beliefs. Hoping to eradicate the fear usually that accompanies these topics, her works are portrayed in an ethereal and occasionally comical manner

She has recently participated in exhibitions like “Between the living and the Archive”, “into softer worlds” and several other group shows.
