September 16, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The PANIK & MYST3RY department has commenced a criminal investigation into allegations of premeditated murder!

If you have any information, please come forward to assist in this investigation. You, along with 99 other witnesses, will assist the lead detective and 7 other specialists to unravel this intricate and twisting mystery with your prompts and suggestions!

Who did it? How did they do it? And most importantly, why?

Disclaimer:

Possibility of strong language. Viewer’s discretion is advised.

The Friday, 15th September 9pm and Saturday, 16th September 7:30pm shows are rated A for Adult. This means the improvisers will not shy away from mature topics, perhaps even leaning into them. We hope to prepare our witnesses (and parents of young witnesses) for this atmosphere of uncensored, unhinged improvisation.

About the artists

Improvper Conduct is an improvisation theatre collective that combines humour, wit, and artistry in their performances. Having performed the first two improv shows as part of ExxonMobil Campus Concerts – PANIK MODE TV (2021) and PANIK ROOM 4D (2022)–the group is back with a thrilling threequel, PANIK AND MYST3RY: 100 WITNESSES (2023).

Christopher Chee is a playwright and a member of Improvper Conduct. His debut play, The Good Farmer won 3rd place in the 24-Hours Playwriting Competition (2017) and was produced by T:>Works in 2018. He has worked with *SCAPE (Audio Play) and The Necessary Stage. When not writing plays, he relishes in the opposite end of expression, Improv Comedy. The spontaneity and the collaboration between fellow players on stage without a script ironically makes him bolder in his choice of words compared to what he writes on paper. He hopes you will be as excited as he is improvising on stage.

Michelle Simon Hariff is an aspiring theatre-maker and NUS Theatre Studies Graduate. Part of Young & Wild 2023, she played Lisa in her graduation showcase, The Wonderful World of Dissocia, directed by Edith Podesta. As an artist, she relishes diverse artistic approaches and has trained in physical theatre under Ang Gey Pin. A lover of comedy, she hopes to embrace the unknown like gravity to the floor – on impact.

Ong Bing Jue is someone who is conflicted with the number 3 in PANIK 3. He is both the 3rd youngest and 3rd oldest employee in his team, graduating with more than 3.0 GPA in NUS before 2023. As a student, he has actively participated in NUS Stage production for more than 3 years, working with 3 directors and being inside 3 productions notably Shook, The Golden Record 2.0 and A Disappearing Number. By joining PANIK 3, he hopes the performance experience will raise his performance bonus above 3/5 this year.

Ong Xue Min is a creative artist, with recent acting credits: Elizabeth&Alma (Elle Cheng, 2023), For My Highness (Toy Factory Productions, 2022), Agamemnon Greek Chorus (Victoria Chen, 2021), and Anything Can Happen / Something Must Happen (Young and Wild, 2019). She is also the co-founder of artistic collective, But Not Boring, which completed an art exhibition, FLOW (Singapore Art Week 2022) and Community Arts Residency @ RP. She changes hairstyle every 2 months. At the time of writing, her short hair is purple, it will be a surprise to all what she looks like now.

Joshua Gareth Seow is an actor and improviser who craves the high of doing a good improvised hoedown. His past works include Into the Woods, Rashomon, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Blackout, Hanjo, and End of the Line. Beyond acting, he has also been typecast as the deep voice that you hear for pre-show announcements. He hopes that through our show, audiences will discover a love for all things improvisation. You may find that all his foreign accents eventually devolve into Southern ones, please go easy on him!

Nathaniel Aaron Tan is a Design Thinking facilitator who creates buy-in for his students by making classes as fun and engaging as this show you are about to watch. He has also acted in productions like Becoming Graphic (Singapore International Festival of Arts), The Vault: Gossip, Symphony & Other Matters (Centre 42) and It Only Takes a Spark (NUS). More recently, he has produced CNA documentaries like Into the Unknown and Why It Matters. He hopes to create enough buy-in for this show so you’ll leave him a good review on NUSmods.

It’s Shao’s Finest Hour! A man with many hats; improviser, creative developer, writer and human being, Tan Shao Yun faces his biggest challenge yet – too many things going on at once. He’s been involved in art installations–Pluritopia (2022), FLOW (SAW 2022), and THE CAVE (OTHERWORLDS, SAW 2021); created multimedia for SCREEN. SHOT. (Bound Theatre, 2022) and the previous show, PANIK ROOM 4D (2022); and co-produced the podcast, “…But Not Boring!”. Shao currently facilitates and plans rehearsals for Improvper Conduct and “Improv Jam-for-All” with NUS Stage Alumni Association. But isn’t all this- *gestures vaguely* -just too much? Can’t he catch a break??

Wee Jia Yi (Ping) is one of the founding members of Bound Theatre which prides itself in the creation of devised works such as The Taste of Water and To Begin Again. He has performed with NUS Stage under Sean Tobin for Shook and Edith Podesta for A Disappearing Number, The Golden Record 2.0, and The City Remembers. You can tell he is bankrupt of ideas in improv scenes when he does an air squat and requests for toilet paper from his neighbour next stall.

PANIK & MYST3RY: 100 WITNESSES by Improvper Conduct is part of ExxonMobil Campus Concerts (EMCC), presented by Centre for the Arts, Office of Student Affairs, NUS.
