How can the disruption of nature/culture binaries foster more-than-human entanglements? What kind of futures can we imagine in light of precarious migrations, securitised fears and asphyxiated commons? What cultures of care could be freshly fermented amidst racialized divisions? Tomorrow Is An Island, as inland, a sinland, is an artist-led project that brings together four artists and two writers from Singapore and Switzerland to rethink ideas of systemic change, counter-map traditional ideas of boundaries and envision new forms of assemblage.

After the end of her stay, she had to go back to Italy.
“Forty years separate these two exceptional musicians, but everything brings them together in music: Lindemann's energetics, lyricism and inventiveness, the sense of melodic phrasing and great instrumental technique in the young and incredible virtuoso Jeanlou Treboux. The taste that these two musicians have in common for beautiful melodies, whether from the pen of Lindemann, Jeanlou, Chick Corea or Gary Burton, make this duo a sound alchemy, poetic or energetic, which carries the listener in a dreamlike and colourful musical journey.” JazzTimes
