FlipSide 2019 : The Pigeoning
May 30 - June 2
A darkly comedic, heartfelt story which uses Bunraku-style puppetry and lo-fi special effects to create a tale about the illusion of safety and control in the context of the end of the world.
Frank, who is obsessed with cleanliness and order, is convinced that pigeons are plotting against him and the story becomes a funny, dialogue-less performance that should enthrall school-age children and speak to adults – seasoned theatre-goers or newbies.
Recommended for ages 8 and above and tickets required for ages 6 and above.
Each performance is followed by a post-show dialogue with the artists, giving the audiences a chance to see the set and puppets, up close.
Limited concessional tickets @ S$ 28.00 available for students, NSF’s and seniors.

Sunday : 5.00 p.m.
