Hush & Rest (1-4pm)
Yoga Nidra Meditation
“Happiness blooms from within.”
A space for respite, a space for quiet, a space for you to bloom from within. Yoga nidra, also known as conscious sleep meditation, is a deeply relaxing and restoring guided practice that eases you away from the noisome world and enter into your wholesome world. There are no yoga poses to do, except to sit back and relax. Take a break and hush – you are enough.
Puppet Theatre Performance by Jalan Rambutan (410-455pm)
ALWAYS FELT HAPPY
‘When life throws you lemons, you can make a million more amazing things besides lemonade!’ Loosely inspired by the famous Street of Sesame, Jalan Rambutan explores the lives of puppet characters making the best out of their day, no matter what challenges come their way. The twist: the puppeteers are improvisers, so they don’t have any scripts! Instead, the performers will create their characters and stories on the spot with the help of the audience. So jump in and take part in creating an adventurous story with the friendly folks of Jalan Rambutan!
Jalan Rambutan is a local improv team that specialises in improvisational puppet theatre. Mirroring Sesame Street, the content is family-friendly. Let’s have fun and enjoy the Play!
Self Exploration Through Exhibition (all day)
I-Opener (an exhibition by Playeum) invites our Soul Happy buddies to explore their senses through play and the arts, through the aesthetic and sensory play-worlds inspired by the artistic designs and creations of four artists with a disability; Dr Dawn-joy Leong, Cavan Chang, Sol Pickens and Jo Devadason.
Find out more about the different spaces below:
by Cavan Chang
Cavan Chang is an artist with Down syndrome. His Cavan Scope is an invitation for his audiences to enter his colourful world, and create a multitude of new collages by playing with his artworks. Cavan Scope also extends with The Eye Track Painter that invites you to traverse visually and explore the mysteries of sight and illusion through eye-tracking.
by Sol Pickens
SOLScape is inspired by the two-dimensional artwork of Sol Pickens, a young boy with autism. He makes his drawings come to life and transforms them into three-dimensional structures. In this space, you are invited to transfer two-dimensional works into three-dimensional playscapes.
by Jo Devadason
Jo Devadason is a poet with Down Syndrome and the voice behind Poetree, that can be found around the space. From an early age, she developed a love for books, imaginary play and self-expression. Her poetry and wordplay gives voice to her views and perceptions of the exhibition.
You can further explore the following technological inventions and play areas created and designed by Din Chan, Imran Mohamad and Dr. Esther Joosa:
