The Theatre Practice invites all to join in the fun at the inaugural season of M1 Patch! A Theatre Festival of Artful Play, an international festival happening throughout August!
Regardless of age, language or genres, M1 Patch! WEAVES an eclectic tapestry of quality productions, engaging fringe events and stimulating workshops – all centered around thoughtful play. From mainstream to experimental, family-friendly to mature, Singapore to international, familiar to unexpected, M1 Patch! provides an inclusive and nurturing space for audience and artists to PLAY!
Explore how play can be used to teach vital life lessons and discuss real-world issues with Immortalx and Utopiazoo, the agelessness of play with The Ordinary and The Unspectacular, and the influence of play on artistic creation with Artist Farm.
The festival will also include a master class on clowning by theatre master Philippe Gaulier, along with a series of fringe events exploring the different facets of play through storytelling sessions, singalong sessions, outdoor screenings and games nights.
