PLAYtime! 2022 Together An Esplanade Production
Gor Gor and Mei Mei are stuck at home and bored. Unlike the past when they could go outdoors and play with their friends, they are becoming restless from having to stay indoors all the time. Even though mummy is working from home, she is swamped with endless online meetings and they have to be quiet so that they do not bother her. With no iPad nor a chance to leave their home, where else can they go to have fun?
Join the siblings as they go on an adventure and discover new ways to play together. Using the power of imagination, they give new meaning to spaces and everyday objects in their home. Follow them as they travel through whimsical worlds and meeting funny creatures and characters along the way as they play freely together within the confines of their HDB flat.
Together is a theatre performance that focuses on how little ones can engage in unstructured play and how imaginative play can transcend boundaries and challenges. Shining a light on sibling relationships, journey along with the pair as they encourage each other and show moments of empathy and understanding as they navigate the challenges and struggles of the ‘new normal’.
