Badang, the Strong Man

In line with the Traditional Arts Plan to develop a broad-based audience and foster an environment appreciative of traditional arts through active engagement of younger audiences, National Arts Council has developed a high-quality taster programme introducing Singapore’s traditional art forms to young children aged four to six years old. This is part of the Council’s strategy to create quality, age-appropriate programmes that offer early exposure to diverse traditional art forms, to seed interest in traditional arts from a young age.

Following the success of the pilot programme last year, the Traditional Arts Taster Programme for Pre-schools is restaged this year with new and improved stories. Three stories drawn from Chinese, Malay and Indian legends are presented, with the Malay legend, Badang, The Strong Man showing from 10–18 July. It is a collaborative effort with Era Dance Theatre and ACT 3 International, which has extensive experience in curating workshops and drama programmes for young children.

The programme is carried out in the form of a learning journey, where students would experience a 30-min theatrical performance followed by a workshop session.

The programme is suitable for pre-school children from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2 level. To make a booking, please call ACT 3 International at 6735 9986 or email
