Selection of pictures from this weekend’s Singapore Night Festival 2018 programmes and performances.
Quick pictorial post. Headed down to the festive area again to check out the programmes and performances scheduled for this weekend. Here are the pictures!
Eat @ Festive Village (SMU Campus Green)
Compared to last year, the setup at SMU Campus Green this round was much more organised. There a barricade around the entire area, with specific entry and exit points. Most of the stalls, as the programme name states, are also food stalls. Hipster food stalls, to be specific. As I have already eaten dinner, I cruised through the area pretty quickly. Midway though, I succumbed to temptation and bought an ice cream, though.
* Photographers take note. There are security checks at the entry points, with signs explicitly forbidding tripods.
The Lost World of Terranova (The Gem Museum)
I had no idea there is a mini museum about gems and minerals at Queen Street. While small, the museum houses quite a detailed introduction of the subject. There is also a good amount of merchandise on sale.
By the way, the “A Pole Art Showcase” pole dancing programme was right next to the museum. I gave it a miss because the queue was long. Really long. (I had no idea so many Singaporeans are into pole dancing?!?)
Singapore Art Museum
After watching Odyssey, again, I ventured into the courtyard where a series of Singapore Night Festival 2018 programmes were scheduled.
Automatarium by David Berga
This was my absolute, absolute favourite Singapore Night Festival 2018! The “automations” were hilarious. They were wickedly macabre too. Best of all, every single one was so wonderfully spontaneous, reacting on the spot to the delighted children surrounding the booths. I’m returning to the art museum on Saturday night to watch them again.
Backyard Sessions @ Armenian
Caught another performance by SMU students here. (Nearly all Singapore Night Festival 2018 programmes are happening within or around their campus, after all) This young ones are truly bursting with zest and energy.
Sing’Theatre Souvenir Promotion (Peranakan Museum)
Sing’Theatre did a short promotion here for their upcoming play, Souvenir, a story about the legendary Florence Foster Jenkin. Florence herself was supposed to sing but she ultimately didn’t turn up, which I guess had to be a good thing. What we had instead was the lovely Carmen performing a mix of opera and modern pieces. The Rasa Sayang group-singing finale was truly exuberant and enjoyable.
Hello Miss Lou (Singapore Philatelic Museum)
Ended my evening with half an hour of splendid jazzy serenading by Miss Lou, Daniel Chia, and Joe Chua. Check out their performance of Sway below! This was the second song.
