The Artground’s biennial festival showcases the best of children’s productions from around the world, as a culmination of our centre’s artist incubation and partnership efforts over the years. Through the festival, we aim to present audiences with a 100 and 100 More novel ways of seeing the world through a child’s eyes.
In 2018, the first edition of the 100 and 100 More Festival for Young Audiences ran from 25 May – 3 June. Envisioned to be a key platform to present original new works for young audiences in Singapore and the region, the festival premiered with Into the Blue Forest – a local festival commission, Especially on Birthdays – a co-creation with Australia, and other prolific works from Denmark, Scotland and Indonesia, namely, Hans Christian, You Must Be an Angel, Songs from Above, Puno (Letters to the Sky) and Snigel & Friends.
These immersive theatre experiences were accompanied by a range of non-ticketed visual arts installations, including Rolling @ TAG by Daiya Aida and a cardboard art exhibition by local inclusive arts movement SuperHero Me, craft workshops by In Merry Motion and other fringe activities by Party Mojo.
