Weekends at The Artground – 24th & 25th August

From 23th May till 15th September 2019, we present Happy Homebodies –  Happy Homebodies features creativity in the simplicity of everyday life. Make new discoveries about common objects at home which are beautifully transformed into an uncommon experience. The magic of this exploration is that it shows children new ways of looking at ordinary objects around us. From a simple dot to the intricate lines that characterise the different parts and objects in a house, journey through the little spaces which open up new possibilities for imagination and innovation! Entry into The Artground itself is free and donations are encouraged.

Ticketed Programmes
The Artground occasionally plays host to ticketed performances and workshops. Patrons are required to purchase tickets online if you’d like to attend. (Link provided below).

Drop-in Programmes
Every weekend, The Artground organises a variety of age-specific drop-in programmes that participants will get to enjoy on a first come, first served basis, inside our Whitebox. Each programme will be charged at $10 per parent-child pair, which you can pay in the queue just before the programme starts. There is no registration for these activities as they are first come, first served (unless stated otherwise). An announcement will be made 5 mins before each programme and the first XX number of children in the queue will get to enjoy the programme (XX refers to the age-specified & capacity of the programme, ie Foam Tile Printing is for the first 20 children between 3 years and up).

Please see schedule below for the programmes this weekend. There will be no need to pre-register on our website for entry into The Artground. Parents and carers will just need to register on our portable tablets on site.

Letters Come Alive! by RolyPoly Family (TICKETED PROGRAMME): In this whimsical and acrobatic dance theatre performance, the letters of the alphabet take on different shapes and sounds to inspire silliness that kids and grown-ups will enjoy. The performers begin the show with the beloved and familiar alphabet song, before animating the letters and well, things get a little topsy-turvy from there. Book tickets here

Here. There, Where? by The Kueh Tutus: A performance and a game, where the children decide where the dancers go and figure out what the dancers want, to get to the next level. In this participatory performance, your actions dictate where the dancers go. See how a video-game can come to life and figure out how to Level Up.

OddSocks by Five Stones Theatre (*Free Programme) (Work-in-Progress):  OddSocks is a fun and quirky physical theatre production about being just a little different.
