Multimedia design for The Feelings Farm, an Esplanade Production (Singapore)

(Official event page & links to tickets here)

Welcome to the Feelings Farm
where feelings bloom and grow.
Pay attention to their whispers,
they might show you where to go…

On a trip to Kranji, three children find themselves lost on the Feelings Farm where emotions are shifting landscapes they must learn to journey through, both together and alone. Guided by a mysterious Cloud, they tumble through the Jungle of Joy, brave the Field of Fear, sail across the Swamp of Sadness, and explore other familiar feelings. Come along for a magical adventure that will surprise and move you.

The Feelings Farm uses music, movement, poetry and multimedia to help children name and understand emotions with compassion. Recommended for ages 6 and up, the musical draws from real experiences of children in Singapore and hopes to give children and adults alike the language to have honest conversations about our feelings.
