We will end the practice by using dry leaves and flowers to create a nice big flower mandala. A time for creativity, slow movements, and appreciation of Mother Nature.

Play is the best way to learn.

Play is not a luxury; it is necessary for children.

Outdoor and free play allows children to have the opportunity to explore at their own pace and make choices for themselves; it’s not surprising that children have better self-regulation when they are allowed to have unstructured play.

Join us for 90 mins of outdoor free play with art stuff, recycled materials, and water. Your child will experience the freedom to explore their curiosity while learning about sharing and social cues.

Rain or shine we will continue (unless there is lightning). There will also be messy play, so we suggest wearing old clothes and bringing extra clothes to change.

If it rains, we’ll just play in the water puddles so gear up with rain boots if you want. Play is serious learning for the children (and us).

Performance: F & B (a.k.a Family & Baking) - Excerpt from IN/OUT

Across segments of interwoven explorations, our young performers En Jie and Annika are paired through the sense of shared inquiry in which their individual identities developed during the pandemic in new directions: En Jie found time and space to develop and hone his skills in food preparation, whereas Annika grew newly sensitised to her emotional associations and attachments to her family members.

Through encounters with the self and others, we see how the youth's identities are honed and influenced by memorisation and memories, by demonstration and storytelling.

About The Observatory
The Observatory – far from silent and objective as its name suggests – is a band whose music and cultural ethos is to respond and speak back to the contemporary afflictions in Singapore and the global milieu. Its current constellation comprises multi-instrumentalists Cheryl Ong, Dharma and Yuen Chee Wai who tread on improvisation, inter-media, experimentation and noise-adjacent territories. In confronting new forms of disorders, The Observatory restlessly turns upon itself to agitate, to comfort and to resist.

Drawing on old and new lexicons, The Observatory seeks to bridge artists and expressions. Two decades on, the band’s polymath practice encompasses music and performance; in-person festivals and online radio shows; touring gigs and interdisciplinary exhibitions.

The newly stylised name of “cont·act” – meaning “continued act” – encapsulates the Festival’s enduring commitment to contribute to the local contemporary dance landscape, and renewed vigour in celebrating dance as a bridging force of experiences and perspectives.

Themed “Breathing Ground”, the 12th edition of the Festival conducts a space of respite, reflection, and reconnection with the self and the larger community. The Festival’s lineup of live performances, for live audiences, is a resistant note against the onslaught of digitalisation of performance in the past two years, yet a knowing ode and farewell to the making and presenting of dance as we know it. As we begin to reimagine dance and its possibilities in an endemic world, “Breathing Ground” – illustrating a heaving, breathing earth – suggests a burgeoning ripeness for the turn of a new chapter

Ticketing Info: Tickets from $25 - https://gibran.peatix.com

After the challenging 2 years we’ve lived through, what better salve for the soul than poetic words of wisdom from the pen of Kahlil Gibran. This selection of his works – some instantly recognizable, others less known but equally evocative – are woven into an evening of entertainment and illumination.

Presented in an ambiance reminiscent of a Middle Eastern desert tent and accompanied by the ethereal strains of the Arabian oud played “LIVE” by a master of the instrument, Gibran’s words are revealed in an intimate, storytelling fashion.

Thought-provoking, calming, inspiring words for Life’s elemental moments – from mundane to magnificent, and the many shades between.
