Educate. Challenge. Inspire.
We believe that the arts offer a unique way to engage with one another. It allows us to celebrate our similarities and differences in the multicultural society we live in; to explore our feelings and emotions across different stages of life; and to revisit and deepen our understanding of our Asian culture and values that define us. With that, Paper Monkey Theatre engages schools, arts groups, welfare groups and the community-at-large, with programmes such as performances and workshops to bring a deeper understanding of what it is to live in our ever-changing world and to create shared memories among loved ones.
Since our beginnings, we have been around the little island of Singapore performing in schools, libraries and shared spaces in the heartlands. Our on-tour performances introduce the art of theatre through curriculum-based pieces, which are relevant to current social issues, making them accessible and engaging. These original plays have been well received for its entertainment value and realistic acting, and have offered audiences both young and old a rich theatrical experience with life lessons learnt.
Besides entertaining and delighting audiences through quality arts performances, we also conduct drama-puppetry workshops.
These programmes allow participants to discover their creativity, artistic capacity and stretch their imagination to the fullest through drama play and puppet crafting. Through creative expression, participants develop self-expression, self-esteem, self-confidence and a greater understanding of the self, the world and their behavior.
Workshops and residencies programmes, as a supplement of the school curriculum or as singular enriching experiences, can be customised to address the needs of the participants.
For arts practitioners, do look out for our ad-hoc studio-style workshops such as puppet making, puppet manipulation or performing arts masterclasses by visiting artistes and theatre professionals. Drop us a line to let us know if there is something you might want to explore which we could offer.
On top of the workshops and performances on tour in various schools and heartlands, we do have other projects such as occasional puppetry workshops for adults and collaborative projects with partners.
The following lists some of our currently on-tour performances and workshops we have available. However, the sky is the limit, do contact us for projects we could explore together.
Do visit our facebook page as we are always on the move around the little island. Come catch us at our performance if we are in your neighbourhood. Or email us if you would like to be included in our mailing list for updates.
