March On, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay’s children’s festival returns from 6 – 17 Mar 2024. In its fourth edition, the festival presents specially commissioned immersive experiences by homegrown companies as well as international co-productions and presentations exploring the themes of home, adventure and coming of age.
For children, home transcends the confines of a roof overhead; it encompasses emotions and an imaginative refuge where they can freely engage in play and weave dreams. March On delves into the concept of “shelter”, exploring its diverse expressions and forms through captivating performances and interactive workshops. We hope to encourage children to reflect on what shields and inspires them, fostering a desire to contribute to a brighter future for themselves and the world they inhabit.
Esplanade Theatre presents well-known Akram Khan Company’s Jungle Book reimagined. An Esplanade co-production, this powerful performance of theatre and dance has been presented at international venues and festivals such as Edinburgh International Festival, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts – New York, New Vision Arts Festival – Hong Kong and more. This famous tale of Kipling’s will be retold with a new sense of urgency and reinterpreted via the lens of children today – those who will inherit our world and become our future storytellers.
When: 6 - 17 Mar 2024,
