And Then We Let It Go

A mixture of originals, duets and covers by Benjamin Chow and Jean Goh Seizure, roughly skirting the edges of love and loss… and love again.
About Benjamin Chow
In 2012, Chow produced Black Market, an original devised performance in collaboration with Word Forward, and in 2016 he directed The Cave, an original work by Annabel Tan that was presented at the Twenty-Something Theatre Festival. In 2018, Chow directed Into The Woods at the Komunitas Salihara Black Box in Jakarta, under TEMAN Teater Musikal Nusantara.
As an actor, Chow has played the roles of Kin Jek in Press Gang, Mark in RENT the musical, Smee in Peter & The Starcatcher, Benmin in Tango, Prince Tun in Forbidden City, and Lim Chin Siong in The LKY Musical, with the last two earning him Best Supporting Actor at the Life! Theatre Awards. He has also been seen in Dragonflies, Lao Jiu, My Love is Blind, Romeo & Juliet, Knuffle Bunny, Elephant and Piggy, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Junior Claus.
Chow is also a voice actor, lyricist and spoken word artist whose solo work has been featured at the Singapore Biennale, and on poetry platforms such as Destination: INK, The New Word Order, SPEAK, and The Singapore Art Salon.
Jean Goh Seizure
Jean Goh Seizure started out as an actor at the age of six, playing roles in dramas such as The Price of Peace, Stepping Out, and Let It Shine, as well as short films such as Autograph Book, Love Exists, and A+Z. Born into a family of performers, Goh wrote her first sappy love song at the age of 17 and hasn’t stopped writing since. She was mentored by Sara Wee from 53A under the Noise Music Mentorship (2016), and is currently one-fifth of local a cappella group The Apex Project.
On her own, Goh writes acoustic folk pop music and spoken word poetry. Her works are mostly inspired by life and heartbreak, and she believes that trials and tribulations are potential battle scars to be shared with people looking for a glimmer of hope. Last year, Jean released her debut single Night, which ranked 3rd on Spotify’s Singapore Viral 50 playlist.
