March On is Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay’s annual children-centric festival for people below 12 and their families, from 9 – 13 Mar 2022. At the heart of this year’s festival is the question: How does a child’s environment impact their learning and growth? Explore the answers at the festival’s participatory arts experiences and multi-disciplinary programmes for families and schools.
This year’s festival commission, titled I Have Something to Say, explores the topic of bullying in the safe space of theatre. The performance uses music, movement and multimedia to invite children to build empathy, and gives children and adults alike a common language to speak honestly about bullying. Barrowland Ballet is one of Scotland’s most exciting contemporary dance companies known for their high-quality and accessible works for young audiences and they will be joined by Singapore dance collective The Kueh Tutus in the work Family Portrait. The festival is also committed to the sharing of ideas through panel discussions and talks involving educators, artists, children and their caregivers.
When: 9 - 13 Mar 2022,
