Z is awkward. Z is curious. Z is playful. Z is clumsy. Z is unsure. Z often wonders why he can’t be perfect.


B is awkward. B is curious. B is playful. B is clumsy. B knows who she is.

Z wants to know what B’s secret is. Do you?


PLAYtime! is a theatre series produced by Esplanade for children aged from 3 to 6 years old. As part of Octoburst! 2022, the artists will present a work-in-progress showcase for feedback from families and peers as a key part of their work’s developmental milestone.


The work-in-progress showcases are opportunities for audience members to provide valuable feedback to the artists. With the responses in mind, this will guide the artists to continue their creative process leading to its full staging in 2023.


The work-in-progress presentation will be followed by a dialogue session with the creative team.

Artist Information

The Kueh Tutus

Website | Facebook | Instagram

The Kueh Tutus are a collaborative team of creatives (dancers, artists, musicians and designers) who followed their noses into exploring dance works for children. Each individual has spent hours extensively creating dances with teaching and playing with children. Brought together by choreographer Melissa Quek, they combined their super-powers of productive curiosity to enter the Singapore scene in 2017, and their playful engagement with music and movement captured the hearts of parents and children alike.
