Family Ties – till 10 June 3:45pm @ National Gallery, Basement
(Image features film “Rice Ball”)
From Big Eyes Big Mind: “Family Ties is a collection of wonderful films that we recommend to ages 9 and up. However, at our recent screening, kids as young as 6 years-old appreciated the films and a 7 year-old girl was moved to tears by the beautiful film, Riceballs. This is a great collection of films that families would enjoy sharing. The last screening is on 10 June at 3.45pm.”

The Insect Play by NTU Epiphany, 8 – 9 June, 8pm @ Aliwal Arts Centre
Written in 1921 by the Čapek brothers, The Insect Play is a masterful fantastic farce in which an inebriated drifter, disgusted with humanity, wanders into the forest, and observes the lives of the insects around him. He looks upon, and occasionally interacts with, militaristic ants, philosophising moths, slick parasites, and obsessed beetles.
An immediate hit on Broadway soon after it was published, the play is an allegorical commentary on society and totalitarianism. Through its disguise in comedy and elaborate staging designs, The Insect Play relates the themes of life and death, morals and morality that still resonates today.
Epiphany’s take on the The Insect Play will harmonise an industrial set-design with an immersive soundscape consisting of digital and live music.

Produced for Chopin’s 200th anniversary, Magic Piano tells the story of 10-year old Anna who misses her father working abroad. Deciding to run away, she stumbles into an old piano, which transforms into a magical flying machine, a cross between a piano, an air-ship, and a giant sailing ship.
Magic Piano is presented in this new live format alongside The Chopin Shorts, a collection of short films, from award-winning animators. With Lim Yan performing the Chopin etudes, this is a wonderful opportunity for children of all ages to experience Chopin’s music within a unique and colourful setting.
