Creative Residency Programme: Artist-Led Imaginative Play

Between Tick and Tock

‘High above the bustle of the city,
are eyes that watch, and hands that know,
it’s time to pause the clock…
and for one tiny second between tick and tock, the city stops!’

Take your time over the everyday details of life in this sensory story experience of ‘Between Tick and Tock’ by Louise Grieg and Ashling Lindsay. Led by our Creative Resident Myra Loke, discover how this immersive story comes to life with the help of everyday items and live foley (reproduction of everyday sound effects). Kids aged 4 – 9 will also make and bring home a sound instrument to use with their own stories!

Witness how everyday objects can bring stories to life through our residency programme, demonstrating how stories can be livened up at home to create an environment where kids lead the play experience!

This is not a book.

It is a *tap tap tap*
It is a *flitter flutter flutter*
It is a *boing boing whee*
It is a *boom boom roar*

Embark on a flight of imagination in a story that goes beyond the book! Inspired by ‘This Is Not a Book’ by Jean Jullien and led by Creative Resident MYRA LOKE, bring stories to life with the help of everyday items in this creative parent-child bonding session! Using everyday items in storybook play transforms a book reading into spontaneous immersive play. It can happen anytime, anywhere!
