(Friday 19 August 2016) The Singapore Night Festival returns this year in its ninth edition with an expanded line-up from its inaugural Open-Call for Night Lights and increased number of programming partners such as Mint Museum of Toys, POMO shopping mall and Harley Davidson Singapore. While there are always the big-ticket draws of light shows at the National Museum, why squeeze with the crowds and have the same Instagram photos as everyone else? Here is a list of what else you can and should check out when you are at the Bras Basah-Bugis precinct this weekend.
For hot folks who need air-conditioning
We do not need to tell you about global warming, what with July being marked as Earth’s hottest month in modern times. Thankfully, there are light projections done by the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts within the confines of the cool air-conditioned Ixora room at the Peranakan Museum. Called A Kaleidoscope Of Spring, the interactive projections showcase the exquisite beauty of Peranakan heritage through colourful traditional motifs. The good news is, this is open until 2am, so it makes for a happy escape for festivalgoers seeking to cool down any time
There is also Shifting Interactions by LASALLE College of the Arts on Level 2 of the National Museum of Singapore Glass Atrium. Yes, the dance performance installation tying together electronic media and sculptured pieces takes place in the air-conditioned expanse of the atrium.
