In a place where people have a short memory span, grandma tells cow a very long story. In this new place, tree forgets its own name.

Butterfly is not named butterfly; pig is not known as pig; plumeria is not called plumeria; tree is not labeled as tree. All of them have their own meaningful names. Thus, what is the name of cow? What does it mean?

Step Out’s In Search of Memory incorporates puppets, live music and kids’ songs and invites children and adults to listen to a story together.

Established in 2001, Step Out, focusing on theatre production, art education and overseas exchanges, has performed for over 40,000 kids in kindergartens, primary schools and communities in Macao and Taiwan throughout the years. It has also organised an annual kids’ theatre programme, Kids Encounter, since 2016, offering a variety of theatre experiences for kids and parents.
