Let’s Go Read OutSide!

Singapore Literature Project: Local Stories [March7 & 8, 14 & 15]
This program will feature four drama-based workshops, inspired by four different Singapore literary works, catered to children between the ages of 18 months and 9 years. Combining reading, storytelling, and role-playing with music, simple props and costumes, the workshops will provide children with an all-round experience to discover, enjoy and love Singapore literature.

Based on Quek Hong Shin’s book The Incredible Basket, this is a dance theatre performance for young audiences.
