Zip Zap Zoom Collective is dedicated to creating arts experiences for young audiences. The collective was founded by 3 core members—Claris Tan, Elizabeth Loh, and Jeremy Leong. Actors by profession, the 3 members are also skilled in various performative art forms such as dance, music, puppetry, and storytelling for young audiences. The collective’s mission is to create immersive arts experiences that encourage their audiences to imagine, investigate, and explore beyond the given. Zip Zap Zoom Collective believes that every child possesses a unique voice and an inherently creative spirit; the collective aims to create arts experiences that encourage and cultivate those qualities.
