The Ageing Artist

Suitable for children age 7 to 12 years old


An Artist considers her mortality, what her art has given her and what she will leave behind. She engages a documentary filmmaker to create what she considers to be her final legacy, but is stumped when her iron strong opinions perspectives are being challenged by him, and a robot.

Presented by The Finger Players and supported by the Qualcomm Foundation, The Ageing Artist is a puppetry performance that weaves together elements of STEM. Targeted at families, this piece is about the meaning and purpose of art creation within the Singapore landscape.

This two-part programme includes a post-performance workshop, providing an opportunity for members of the community to be exposed to The Finger Players’ signature puppetry forms.

Suitable for children age 7 to 12 years old
