Esplanade Presents


Dot and Line v2.0

R & XJ (Singapore)

11 Mar 2024, Mon, 2pm & 4pm


(Intermission: None)

Esplanade Rehearsal Studio

This event is over.


Inspired by the book Line and Dot written by Véronique Cauchy and illustrated by Laurent Simon, we hope to develop a shared theatrical play experience where children are invited into the world of Line and Dot. The children become active agents of this experience by taking on a “performative” role, by being Line or Dot. The choices they make with every encounter propels their story-making journey, leaving a sense of discovery of their own bodies and its transformative and creative expressions— appreciating the diversity of bodies as they create tableaux with others. 


Incubated at The Artground under the GroundBreakers programme 2022, this iteration at PLAYlab 2024 explores a different audience participatory framework. 


This showcase will consist of a performance and a facilitated discussion with the artists.

 XJ 珺  

Art is to relate, resonate and provoke, regardless of tools. The soul needs to be sharpened, so do the tools.
