Parents, did you know that one of the best things we can do for our kids is introduce them to the wonderful, colour-filled world of arts and culture? Not only will it increase their chances of becoming the next Van Gogh (but with two ears), but it also boosts social and emotional learning. From 16 May to 2 June, you’ll get to do exactly that at Singapore’s pinnacle arts festival, the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA)! With its captivating display of theatre, music, dance, film and visual arts this is one fun-packed, family event you’re not going to want to miss…
Unique experiences for the whole family
The Arts House will be transformed into the Festival House, which will host artists talks, workshops, discussions and the festival bar – House Pour. And if you’re bringing the fam along, we suggest diving into the magical world of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, presented by New Zealand troupe, Silo Theatre. This isn’t a regular kinda performance: hold onto your hats for an award–winning contemporary adaptation, which uses a cool combination of live animation and puppetry to tell the story of Peter and his adventures. Will he capture the wolf and become a hero? You’ll have to watch it to find out!
The details you need to know:
What: Peter and the Wolf at SIFA
When: 8 May to 20 May, 2019
Time: 10am and 3pm
Where: KC Arts Theatre – Home of SRT
Free performances: woot, woot!
Oh how we love a freebie (kids are pricy, let’s be honest), so our advice is to swing by the Arts House for some free entertainment! Shake what yo momma gave you at We Can Dance by Daily tous les jours, featuring ScRach MarcS (a large scale interactive installation that mimics your dance moves), or get your snooze on at De Relaxerette by Arjan Kruidhof and Explore-the-North. Oh, and don’t forget to catch the closing concert performed by the fabulous Singapore Symphony Orchestra – sweet.
Kids: prepare to be cultured (and love it in the process!)
