Turn The Everyday Into Exciting Fiction with Akshita Nanda
30 Nov 2019, Sat, 2pm – 4pm
Think your life is boring? Think again. Some of the cheekiest and most riveting writing in the English language has been inspired by everyday routine – think Jane Austen’s domestic dramas or The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ by Sue Townsend. In this two-hour workshop, you will learn how to find the fantastic and funny in the world around you and how to convey these discoveries in writing. No extraordinary skills needed, just a love for word and writing. Ages – 16 years and above.

Movement Flow: Permission to Dance with Sharda Harrison
1 Dec 2019, Sun, 10.30am – 12.30pm
Movement flow is designed for everyone; you don’t have to be a performer to experience it, enjoy it, and move with it. Using breath, animal poses that stem from yoga and contact improvisation, participants will express themselves freely through movement, and eventually, dance. Sharda also uses the Djembe (African Drum Beat), selected music as well as poetry to get participants to a state of ‘flow’. Come dressed comfortably and be ready to dance freely and with joy.
Who is Sharda Harrison?
Sharda is a performer, theatre maker and educator. She graduated from LaSalle College of the Arts with a BA (Hons) in Acting in 2009 and has returned to LaSalle to pursue an MA in arts practice and pedagogy. Sharda has acted with various Singapore as well as international performance companies. In 2013, she founded her own theatre company, Pink Gajah Theatre, which serves as a platform for artists to create and showcase their own works. Her most recent works under Pink Gajah Theatre are a series of movement pieces for Centre 42’s Late Night Texting, “Verso/Recto” in collaboration with Main Tulis Group. Sharda teaches part time at LaSalle College of the Arts and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. She is a co-host for Channel 5’s “Talking Point”.
Tinkering with Puppets with playmakers from Playeum
1 Dec 2019, Sun, 2pm – 4pm
Ages: 4 – 12 years old
Minimum donation ticket at S$30 for one(1) parent+one(1) child.
Please consider offering a donation for additional child and/or parent.
Playeum invites children and adults to create their own puppets using materials ranging from the everyday to the inventive, and then to embellish their creations with technical resources including coin batteries, motors, LEDs and wire. Puppets with flashing eyes, wearable technology and even spinning head-gear can be created through making simple circuits that are possible for children as young as four years old. Younger children can enjoy the activity just as much using a range of other exciting materials, including textiles, bottle caps, ice-cream sticks, pipe-cleaners, stuffing, and more.The workshop begins with something simple and then gradually, building upon the concept, to realise the child’s vision. The result? A puppet that has never been made before, to be taken home for extended play and performance.Parents are encouraged to attend and contribute to the making process, which is both straight-forward and engaging. It is a fun and fulfilling activity for the entire family.
