a5_front_v02 ACT 3 International, Singapore’s leading Arts company for the young, is proud to announce the launch of a brand new ACT 3i Festival for Children dedicated to children from 2 to 12 years old. Packed with exquisite, high quality and aweinspiring theatre performances that will include original works from Singapore, Italy, Sweden, Argentina, the U.K and Canada, an artfully curated visual arts programme, as well as Conviviality Sessions led by Children’s Theatre artists that are aimed at educators and parents, ACT 3i Festival for Children aims to be the frontrunner in arts enrichment for the young.

Taking place daily from 24 May to 5 June 2016 at the centrally-located Drama Centre, this new festival is the latest brainchild of experienced festival creative producers ACT 3 International, who are stalwarts in this arena, having pioneered the Children First! Singapore International Festival for Children which ran from 2000 to 2009, Child Size (2010), Kidsfest (2006-2008) under the National Arts Council’s Singapore Arts Festival, as well as their flagship community event, the annual NTUC Income Kite Festival Singapore (2009 to present).

ACT 3 International focuses on presenting well-crafted as well as ground-breaking work that is thought-provoking for both parent and child. The ultimate aim is to give young audiences a unique and memorable experience that is different from broad-based children’s entertainment to enrich their lives through Arts and Culture. For this festival, ACT 3 International worked with renowned and emerging children’s theatre companies that are exploratory in nature and ever ready to challenge pre-conceptions.

Elaborates Artistic Director of ACT 3 International, Ruby Lim-Yang: “Through our vast and varied experiences in curating Arts programmes for the young, we are proud to have built a deeper awareness for top quality work that is targeted at the very young. Ever-fervent in our quest to build our artistic networks and developing our know-how on programming, we are proud to present a festival with themes that are relevant for today’s children, without losing sight of the artistry, craftsmanship and beauty of live theatre, as well as the fields of visual and literary arts. Our children will have the rare opportunity to explore the beauty of different cultures through theatre.”
