Now in its 42nd year, SIFA 2019 continues to champion the creation and presentation of Singaporean and international works for diverse audiences. Families specifically can look forward to a curated selection of programmes designed to excite individuals of all ages, even the young so as to cultivate their interest in the arts.

Recommended programme and activities include:

  • Peter and the Wolf

    • Family package of 4 available
    • Suitable for audiences age 5 years and above
  • We Can Dance
    • An interactive performance installation which invites audiences to imitate choreography in a recording booth to create a collaborative dance that is projected to reveal the interactions and interpretations of each subsequent participant
