'I’m dead' was first performed as part of 'I can’t, I have to go to Mongolia' by Michael Lee at Comma Space on 13 February 2020. Each participant was tasked to come up with an excuse, with various excuses, as to why they couldn’t be at the opening, at the performance — and then were to take the stage to perform said excuse.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
