“Are you ready for a little journey?”
“Some creatures might live in this tiny space. Could you imagine what they look like?
“Why do they build their nests here? What makes them feel safe?”
“Look above! What kind of creature might live there?”

The Little Nests is an enchanting and evolving immersive installation that invites you to visit the little nests of special creatures and unravel mysteries in strange new environments where you can unleash your creativity to conjure extraordinary creatures.

Seamlessly blending shadow puppetry, live performance, and otherworldly soundscapes, The Little Nests invites you and your family to explore the innate longing for a safe refuge.

Bringing together a collective of artists from Australia's Melbourne Fringe, Indonesia's renowned Papermoon Puppet Theatre, and Singapore's arts space for children, The Artground, The Little Nests was developed over the course of three years in collaboration with children from all three countries and supported by ArtPlay.

Join us for a magical immersion into The Little Nests, where imagination soars, and the spirit of home finds its way into our hearts.

Your ticket includes a 30 minute performance for one child & one adult. After the performance other friends or family members can join you to explore the installation.
