    5. A Prince, An Explorer and A Girl - The Story of Batu Bulat

    Venue: Esplanade Theatre Studio
    Dates: 11 - 27 Aug 2023, 45 mins with no intermission
    Admission: $20 (Check show timings and get tickets)

    Once upon a time, a prince, an explorer and a girl lived on the idyllic island of Batu Bulat. Whilst each of them led their own exciting life, which at first glance seemed as different as night and day, they soon found out that they were more similar than they were different.

    Join the islanders as they encounter an adventure together which takes them on different paths but ultimately lead them to understanding what empathy is and that there is always more than one perspective to any story.

    This is a text-based performance that requires children and their adults to figure out what really happened at Batu Bulat by watching and listening closely to each character's story. Children will be invited to express their opinions and thoughts as part of the performance. It is an excellent opportunity to introduce the idea of putting oneself in someone else’s position and feeling what they are feeling to build respectful and caring relationships.

    Note that audiences will be seated on the floor and tickets are required for everyone, including infant-in-arms.
