- SYNOPSIS -

Beliefs and superstitious concepts are often manifested through a rich visual
imagery that attempts to represent otherworldly presences. Our imagination and
instincts give form to that what is invisible, which can also be imagined to exist
within ourselves. This artist-run workshop developed for children aged 7 to 12
explores the invisible force within us that can be seen as the ‘fighting spirit,’ the
strength that keeps us going. Participants will be introduced to stencil techniques,
as well as the dripping and sponging techniques of action painting.

performance, and sound to respond to human condition in relation to the social
