My picks for children:

PARABOLES 2.0
by Compagnie Off (France) & Victric Thng (Singapore)
Venue: National Museum of Singapore, Museum Façade
Time: 10.30pm and 11.30pm (performance on 16 July)
12mn and 1am (performance on 17 July)

Six giant satellite dishes spring from the urban ground right in front of the National Museum of Singapore. Under each satellite, we hear faint abstract sounds. It is the music of the stars, solar winds, and radio waves, all mixed together in a surreal, random composition.


The performances are a bit late for us, children. If you can't stay for the show, do check out the giant satellite dishes at National Museum.



by Wandering Moon (Thailand)
Venue: National Museum of Singapore, The Salon, Level 1
Time: 8pm and 9.15pm

The Red Tree is a shadow puppet theatre performance, adapted from award winning Shaun Tan’s famous picture book.



JAKARTA STREET ART: NOW
by Riyan Riyadi, Rizky Aditya Nugroho and Andi Riyanto of Ruangrupa/Forum Lenteng (Indonesia)
Venue: National Museum of Singapore, Stamford Green
Time: 7.30pm – 2am

“NOW” is created on billboards in the outdoors of National Museum of Singapore. The three street artists will create a contemporary aesthetic experience by using graffiti designs to explore reactionary artistic works around the region done by contemporary artists.






THE BOX
by Wandering Moon (Thailand)

Venue: Singapore Management University (SMU) Campus Green
Time: 9pm and 11pm (on 16 July), 8.30pm and 11pm (on 17 July)


The Box is a combination of a performing and performance art though a semi-improvisation of movements, light and shadow under one mutual idea. It is a collage of simple images of manually created shadow joined force with gripping music generates a spontaneous dialogue between performers and audience
