‘Til Death Do Us Part

Half of all marriages end in divorce, the other half end when one spouse dies. If you want out, but divorce is not an option, your inner angel and devil will help you decide what to do. Be prepared… to be spooked.

Diver Down

The highest point on Earth is the peak of Mount Everest, at 8848m above sea level. The deepest you can go is almost 11,000m below the waves.

The only creatures that at that depth are no more than half a meter.

So if you encounter something bigger than that, you might be spooked

Genesis – Deborah Emmanuel

Deborah Emmanuel (b.1988) is a Singaporean artist, most recognised for her work as a poet, singer and theatre-maker. Deborah’s gifts have taken her across oceans, from the spiritual settings of Bali and Kathmandu to the vibrant cities of Berlin, London and New York. Her powerful performances have been at select events like TEDx Singapore and The Performance Theatre, and have toured alongside performance poetry sensation Sarah Kay. 

Her writing continues to feature at poetry festivals like the Barcelona International Poetry Festival and the Makassar International Writers Festival and has even won competitions in Singapore, Germany and Australia. The quality and versatility of her craft have also seen her invited as a resident artist to respected spaces such as Literarisches Colloquium Berlin and The Watermill Center New York.

Deborah’s first poetry collection, When I Giggle In My Sleep, was published by Red Wheelbarrow Books in early 2015. Her creative non-fiction work Rebel Rites, was self-published with a well-funded Pozible campaign in 2016. After the success of that, Deborah decided to release her third book Genesis: Visual Poetry Collection in 2018 with the same independence. She has also released multiple music albums as a lead vocalist and collaborated on many sound works. This, of course, includes her current biggest projects Mantravine and Polymorphism.

In the last few years, Deborah’s work has been heavily influenced by political and feminist discourse and a commitment to spiritual practice as the key to her personal revolution. This has led her to open up new abilities and pursue work in the healing arts as a shamanic practitioner and past life hypnotist. You can book a healing session below.
