Catalysts – A Promenade Theatre Performance
Embark on an exciting journey with our founders, Jo & Win, as they learn more about their feelings through KidsSTOP™ & Singapore Repertory Theatre’s first ever STEAM-themed promenade theatre performance, Catalysts!
When the KidsSTOP™ cat Madame Curie is 'catnapped' by grouchy Dr FeelBad, her best friends Jo and Win feel sad and angry - which is exactly how Dr FeelBad wants them to feel. Jo and Win then remembers what Madame Curie once told them: "Always question. Always wonder." So they ask themselves, "If we know why we feel bad today, will it help us feel better tomorrow?" Journey with Jo and Win by rocket, train, and even dinosaur, as they rescue Madame Curie, cheer-up Dr FeelBad, and explore science!
Catalysts is an interactive promenade theatre experience where the audience interact and physically move together with the actors from one scene to the next.
