Natalie Alexandra is a Guzheng performer, and a current PhD scholar at the National Institute of Education Singapore, where she is investigating the creative agencies of babies and their relationships with the adults in a performance setting. She believes that the Arts has the ability to develop children’s empathy for diverse cultures. A young mother to Baby Dodo, she works together with Baby Dodo to create age appropriate performances for children. Believing strongly that the very young are beings with their own identities, rather than becomings waiting to be sculpted, Natalie hopes to share her experiences as an artist and mother with other parents and their little ones.
Natalie founded Little Creatures by SA in 2016, an initiative dedicated to the creation of a space for children in the early years to play and learn through sounds, sonic objects and ideas. With the firm belief that children derive meaningful experiences, construct interpersonal relationships, and manifest their creativity through play, Little Creatives by SA produces performances and workshops that involve the young and the young at heart in immersive manners.
