This photo contains a performance of The Mechanics as performed in the 2008 Short+Sweet Singapore Festival, at The Arts House, Play Den, Singapore.
Meet old school, all knowing tradesman, Norbet who works hard at keeping ahead of the next crisis in the car repair workshop. He generously takes new kid, Colin under his wing, tutoring him in the sacred arts of mechanic ethics, love and relationships. Norbet knows a lot of things. He knows. In fact, sometimes, he will tell you too many times what he knows.
Norbet attempts to educate Colin about the games men and woman play (or at least the games men think women want them to play.) Colin proves he isn’t as stupid as appearances initially indicate.
