Singapore Night Festival is here again for its 9th edition with the theme “Inventions and Innovation”. Here is what you can and should check out when you are at the Bras Basah-Bugis precinct this weekend.
Journey by NOVAK (UK) Featuring Soundtrack by Ed Carter
In this spectacular work, NOVAK delves into the world of Victorian novelist Jules Verne, known for his creation of a world reflecting the future of Victorian invention and fantasy. The team reinterprets seven of his novels to create a unique adventure dynamically projection-mapped to fit the façade of the Singapore Art Museum.
KEYFRAMES by Groupe LAPS (FR)
Through micro-stories weaved upon the stately National Museum of Singapore façade, KEYFRAMES offers narration in the city – urban stories where bodies and their movements play main roles. Part animation and part moving sculpture, the LED figures and their routine imbue static buildings with energy and excitement. This new installation – part of the KEYFRAMES series – brings glimmers of the past to life.
Shifting Interactions by LASALLE College of the Arts (SG)
Dancers will traverse a dynamic performance space dotted with a series of static and animated objects. Conceptualized as a durational and improvised performance piece, participants will shape, change and vitalize the space over time through sound, light and movement.
Full listing of performances and shows can be found here.
:Samara by Max Pagel & Jonathan Hwang, Starlight Alchemy (SG)
Inspired by the loss of the artist’s favourite tree, :Samara is an interactive illuminated tree sculpture created to give closure to a lost space. :Samara invites us to reflect on the authenticity of using modern technology to recreate what we lose in our fast-changing environment. At the same time, it gives us the opportunity to acknowledge and let go of these losses.
