*IgnorLAND is a site-specific project that aims to excavate shared memories of a place, and bring unknown or forgotten stories to the people. In the 2007 IgnorLAND of its Name, audiences were brought to different parts of Singapore where site-specific performances were staged at Labrador and the Old Nantah University Arch, to hear the stories of these places. In 2009, IgnorLAND of its Desires brought audiences to Geylang to experience its nightlife, where colourful characters and food delicacies rule the streets.
