The Theatre Practice Education Project

The Theatre Practice is recognised as a pioneer in arts education in Singapore, with The Theatre Practice Education Project (TTPEP) as one of our Advocacy team’s key initiatives.

Programmes under TTPEP complement and extend the Practice philosophy that the human experience should always be the core of our work. With this exposure students learn to develop personal and social capabilities such as: self-discipline, empathy, passion, confidence, and creativity. Key programmes include weekend children’s courses, as well as well-received short-term and long-term initiatives (shows, workshops, talks, teachers’ training) that bridge a student’s relationship with the performing arts.

Child Education begins with character development, we have to mould a child’s personality from young. This is the mission of TTPEP.

– Mdm Goh Lay Kuan, Co-founder & Artistic Advisor of The Theatre Practice

 

With TTPEP, our programmes:

 1. Advocate a culture of “Play”

As a pioneer in providing arts education in Singapore, TTPEP’s unique approach combines training in various aspects of the performing arts with the spirit of “Play”.

When you play, you free up the mind. When you play, your brain is stimulated and suddenly, even the impossible becomes possible. Play is serious business.

– Kuo Jian Hong, Artistic Director of The Theatre Practice

2. Create multi-faceted opportunities for exposure to Chinese language and culture in Singapore

With Practice’s long-standing history in promoting Chinese language and culture through the arts, TTPEP is pivotal in creating child-oriented programmes to advocate for this cause.

Our relationship with language has changed so much. I’m not referring to any specific language, Rather, it appears that our children can only access language on a very ‘functional’ or ‘academic’ level. Theatre becomes a bridge to allow for a much more accessible way for them to connect with language and hence, begin to accumulate their own sense of culture.

– Kuo Jian Hong, Artistic Director of The Theatre Practice

Our programmes complement and extend the Practice philosophy that the human experience should always be the core of our work.

We believe that a child learns best in a stress-free environment. How do we achieve this? The answer is Play!
