Description

PERFORMANCE | Embracing Animal Pop by Jecko Siompo

Involving up to 30 adult-child performers, Jecko Siompo’s Embracing Animal Pop is a mobile participatory performance that will unfold across the National Gallery Singapore in spectacular style.

Starting at 3pm on 7 and 8 Sep 2019, the mobile participatory performance (est. 45- to 75-minutes-long) will take place across the Gallery’s public spaces. Our adult-child pairs will use the “animal pop” dance style—pioneered, practiced and taught by Siompo—that fuses animal-inspired movements and the more urban styles of pop and hip-hop.

Siompo’s practice as a world-renowned choreographer and performance artist has taken him to festivals and venues across the world, and we are excited to see what he will do at the Gallery Children’s Biennale 2019.

Free admission. Registration not required.

Sat, 7 Sep 2019
Session 1: 3pm–4.30pm

Sun, 8 Sep 2019
Session 2: 3pm–4.30pm
