The Macao Cultural Centre, under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, is launching its latest ARTmusing Summer, a new series of workshops, performances and screening devised to entertain and inspire a wide audience throughout the holidays. From babies and children to youngster and seniors, this year’s edition leaves no one out.
02.07-28.08.2022 ARTmusing Summer Workshops
Devised to boost creativity within audiences of all ages, the programme features workshops for babies, turning tiny curious minds into blossoming arts lovers, awakening their senses through sound and movement. Switching on parental artistic potential, the family workshops provide a bonding opportunity for grownups and their little ones. Children too, will have a chance to explore, expressing themselves in a performing and skilful operatic adventure or displaying their cartoonist skills, while the teenagers may enjoy the exciting discovery of exotic world instruments and musical singing. As for the senior segment, they will also be called upon to overcome a few challenges, this time through plenty of acting and dance steps.
28.07-03.08.2022 Sweet Dream in the Woods
Producer Chan Si Kei joined hands with choreographers Wendy Choi and Annette Ng to create Sweet Dream in the Woods. This new adventure will let tots up to 15 months wander freely, stimulating their senses. Moving to the rhythms of live world music, a pair of dancers will lead the babies to explore every corner in this staged forest. Immersed in the sounds of exotic and traditional instruments, from the handpan and ocarina to the Indian tabla, this play is conceived as a first-time experience that will encourage a tiny audience to engage with nature on a theatrical setting.
A window to the world
25-28.08.2022 ARTmusing Film Carnival
The long holidays would probably feel incomplete without a good day at the cinema. This year, kids and teens may bring the rest of the family to watch an international movie selection screened at festivals around the planet. From creative animations and heart-warming stories to insightful documentaries, this year’s Film Carnival will let everyone venture in a multiplicity of distant, fascinating worlds.
28.08.2022 ARTmusing Fun
Wrapping up the warm season, families are invited for yet another intensive day at CCM.
