187 Orchestra is an experimental soundscape vignette of a bus ride to Pettah. It captures the rhythm of the ride and collective sounds of its passengers, the performers, you experience on every ride.
Born in Kuwait to Sri Lankan Moor parents, Iman, now a Singapore citizen, spent most of her childhood in Sri Lanka, in the city of Colombo and it is here, that she developed a fondness for writing stories. She experiments with synaesthetic and cross-genre writing. Her collection of vignettes “Colomboscapes”, was published in the UK/Singapore based literary art journal, We Are A Website, in 2017. Her poem, A Better World, was featured in the book UNMASKED: Reflections on Virus-time, curated by Shamini Flint and is the co-editor of Singapore at Home: Life Across Lines, an anthology of short stories launched at the Singapore Writers Festival, 2021. When she is not writing fiction, she is engaged with academic research and consulting work in the field of public health.
