Gerald Leow returns again for the second consecutive year to design the set for another Community Tour. Gerald creates sculptures for theatre sets. As an artist he works with visual culture and uses it to shed light on the nature of authenticity, culture & identity. He is also currently designing props for the National Day Parade 2016.
The set represents the many levels of consciousness and the complexity of the human mind.
