Sparky is a small electronic arm and is the star of The Tech Playground. In this workshop we will meet Sparky, dance with Sparky, make music and new friends!
Tech Playground by The Kueh Tutus is a work-in-development and is part of The Artground’s artist incubation programme – The GroundBreakers.
The Kueh Tutus
The Kueh Tutus are a collaborative team of creatives (dancers, a composer, a dramaturg) who dove into exploring dances and dance-based experiences for the young and very young. We have spent hours teaching, playing with or being children. Now we also feed a desire for discovery and unlock the imagination through works that are developed with children as an integral part of the creative process.
Egged on by choreographer Melissa Quek, we combined our super-powers of productive curiosity in 2017 when our playful engagement with music and movement captured the hearts of parents and children alike.
Artist involved in Tech Playground are Melissa Quek, Sage Tan, Eugene, Min, and
The Groundbreakers programme
The Artground – A Curious Place to be aims to be a space where all artists, young and younger, can be curious about discovering different ways of artmaking, and create works that are delightful for their audiences. We believe that all children deserve aesthetic experiences that are thoughtfully designed and considered. The Artground will provide the space, literal & figurative, for artmakers to conceptualize, to devise, to test and to design these experiences in order to break new ground in this field.
As part of our Groundbreakers programme, The Artground invites artists to propose ideas to be incubated at our space. Upon selection, all artists will embark on a year-long process and have access to The Artground for development and devising, a project stipend, the ability to present WIP works to targeted age-groups as part of the developmental test-bedding process for feedback & responses from parents and/or children at each stage of development.
