“Fun is the feeling of finding something new in a familiar situation.” —Ian Bogost, Play Anything: The Pleasure of Limits, the Uses of Boredom, and the Secret of Games (2016)

Viewing art and the world as a metaphorical playground can provide the basis to orient creative thoughts and processes. A Playground Needs Only to Be Interesting is an explorative exercise to lay out playful contexts and gather unexpected associations. The programme consists of a presentation about Singapore playgrounds by writer Justin Zhuang interspersed with Cake Theatre’s recitations of Playground Manifesto, a selection of artists’ statements collected and “remixed” over the years by artist Chun Kaifeng.
