French arts group Compagnie des Quidams performs « Musical Notes » as part of Arts in Your Neighbourhood, a programme by the National Arts Council that aims to provide enriching arts experiences for everyone at their doorsteps.
Three black and white characters on stilts walk down a street. They approach and whisper musical secrets to members of the audience. From their unique musical instruments, they broadcast different melodies and begin to dance. Both funny and moving, these quirky characters lead the audience in their musical fantasies.
Come and meet fantastical characters on stilts set imaginations alight in whimsical music and dance performances by French arts group Compagnie des Quidams.
Beyond Woodlands, a variety of enriching arts experiences for the whole family awaits you island-wide. With close to 70 arts activities happening at 18 locations across the island, there is something suitable for everyone.
