Every August, the Singapore Night Festival transforms the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct into a midsummer’s celebration of sorts.
The Singapore Night Festival features a theme each year, and previous editions have showcased international acts such as the spectacular Globe by Close-Act Theatre (2017), the spellbinding Gardens of Angels by Theater Tol (2015), and the dazzling Fuerzabruta by Ozono Producciones (2012), where an aerial dancer sprinkles confetti while gyrating to live music.
The signature highlight of the festival are the interactive light installations that turn the facades of the National Museum of Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum into ephemeral works of wonder. Night owls will enjoy the many events held late into the night at cultural institutions such as the National Museum of Singapore, the Peranakan Museum, Singapore Art Museum, The Substation and more. Festival goers will get to immerse themselves too in the various street and music performances, by local and international artists, all playing their original works. If you’re in town, don’t miss your chance to see Singapore’s heritage, arts and culture in an entirely different light from 17 – 25 Aug 2018, 7.30pm – 12mn daily. Performance nights from 23 – 25 Aug.
