Toccata Studio is a Non Governmental Organization that was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director/ music composer Ng Chor Guan and creative producer Tan E-Jan. Toccata Studio achieved NGO status in 2015 and is an active advocate for the holistic betterment of the community via innovative art practice. Toccata Studio contributes to its community in three specific ways: 1, via creative development, providing structural and creative support for artists to develop and experiment within and without their fields; 2, via performance, creating works of art that speak to both the community and the era in which we live; and 3, via arts education, offering educational programs and outreach services to children and adults. To date, Toccata Studio has successfully run more than 20 improvisational sessions involving artists local and abroad since its establishment in 2012; the NGO has also initiated outreach programs to institutions in several states in the Malaysian peninsula, and recently in 2015, Toccata Studio created a five-year art project centering on performance and dialogue, titled ‘2020’.
