Preview: Goodman Open House 2019
This June holidays, the annual Goodman Open House is back to welcome one and all for a day of family-friendly arts from the artist tenants of Goodman Arts Centre, Singapore’s largest arts enclave. Get a chance to visit the artists’ studios and meet them in person to learn more about the artistic process, as well as indulge in the many workshops, participative music and movement performances available.
With this year’s theme being Music, Dance and Play, you can expect all three of those by the truckload when you visit the centre. Enjoy performances by the Singapore Lyric Opera’s Children Choir and the Philharmonic Youth Winds, as well as Little Creatures, a series of musical jam programmes curated by SAtheCollective dedicated to allowing little ones to experiment with musical instruments and exploring sounds and musical ideas. Be sure to also check out the jam-along Music Jamboree featuring live musicians and ethnic instruments playing old and new songs.
Under Dance, experience different dance rhythms and movements with interactive dance performances specially curated for both junior and adult audiences. Festivalgoers can also learn more about storytelling using hand gestures, one of the core aspects of Indian Classical Dance.
Get the whole family together and Play with a whole day of bonding and creativity with fun activities ranging from storytelling sessions, chime-making workshops, watching a puppetry production, caricature drawing or even participating in creating a floor mural. Finally, a specially-curated mini food and art marketplace will also be available during the open house, perfect for keeping your belly filled or bringing home a nice souvenir to remember your outing by. Set to inspire, amaze and provide an avenue for family bonding, mark your calendars and make a date with Goodman Open House this June!
