Singapore Night Festival
Were you at Bras Basah when it was buzzing with life over the past two weekends?
This year’s Singapore Night Festival glowed to the theme of ‘Bold and Beautiful’ and dazzled spectators with impactful night lights, reminding us to appreciate the simple things in life that are often neglected.
“Earth Harp” was one of the more intriguing performance-installations at the festival.Inspired by the phrase “architecture is frozen music”, musician Willam Close decided to invent larger than life instruments to explore the connections.
This year’s Night Festival also enabled our local talents to showcase their work. Missed it? You have got to be there next year!
