You Can Reach The Sky by The Wanderlings, at The Artground, 23 – 28 December

You Can Reach The Sky is a non-verbal, multi-sensorial theatrical experience for typical and atypical pre-walking babies. It follows the journey of a dandelion and its desire to reach the sky. The entire show is created from items that can be typically found at home, making it an easily-replicable experience for parents and babies.

You Can Reach The Sky is Singapore’s first baby theatre production, helmed by The Wanderlings. It premiered in 2017 at The Artground, and has since went on an island-wide tour to various infant-care centres. In October 2018, You Can Reach The Sky reached out to under-served communities, where invited beneficiaries got to watch the performance for free.
