The Little Windmills Take the Stage 2017
“Go, go, go, go, go, hand in mine, friend come let’s go. Go, go, go, go, go, on an adventure, here we go!” The anticipated moment has arrived. The children enter the stage with a great desire to perform their items for their audience. Some of them confident, some of them shy, together they perform uninhibitedly while their parents celebrate their year of growth and learning downstage.
The Little Windmills take the Stage! is an annual presentation of students from The Theatre Practice Education Project’s Children Course. After a year of learning, each class takes their significant moment on stage to showcase their fruits of learning on this special day to their loved ones in a 10-minute presentation.
We value the growth of the children over their amazing performances on stage. Let us hold an open heart and witness the friendship they have built up, the self-confidence they have cultivated, and their growth. Let this stage bring you more laughter and warmth.
Venue: Practice Space
2017 has been a particularly meaningful year for us.
In the blink of an eye, 54 Waterloo Street has been our home for more than a year. Hence, The Little Windmills Takes the Stage! is a wonderful way to celebrate that. Our children have been investigating this old Singapore neighbourhood that we are situated in and explored themes of identity, history and memory.
The performance you are witnessing is merely a fraction of what they have accumulated in the year. True to the Practice spirit, we invite you to ask your children about their process because that is often, one of the most important aspects of our work.
As we enter another edition of Little Windmills, it really is a testament to the unwavering support we have received from our teachers, parents and friends over the years. Thanks to this family of jian ren (践人), we have kept this ‘garden’ alive as we welcome young gardeners every year.
So today, we celebrate the growth of our Little Windmills!
