Experience horror come to life through 360º illustrations, accompanied by clips from audiobooks by Storytel. Four illustrators interpret a scene from four local stories by Catherine Lim, Clara Chow Daryl Qilin Yam and Suffian Hakim, bringing you their versions of nightmares to you via VR headsets.

First showcased at Textures 2020, this free 5-10 min immersive experience brings writing, audiobooks, and illustration together to introduce SingLit to the public in a new and exciting way.

This Textures edition of TUSITALA 360º offers a broad interpretation of what is scary in line with the theme of “These Storied Walls”. Scenes take place within walls and range from the Singapore Flyer as a prison to a group therapy session for ghosts at the Old Changi Hospital.

Sorta Scary Singapore Stories is now available online here.

This project was made in partnership with Storytel Singapore, commissioned by The Arts House, organised as part of #BuySingLit, and supported by National Arts Council Singapore.
