Lunar New Year 2024 is still three weeks away, but auspicious dragons are already all over Singapore. Here’s another mighty one to visit for photos, joy, and of course, lots of huat!
In collaboration with creative studio Tell Your Children, CapitaLand has unveiled Dance of the Dragon,an Animated Light Art Installation presenting a playful and modern interpretation of the traditional mythical dragon from the Chinese Zodiac. An eight-metre-wide sculpture vividly brought to life with animated colour-chasing LED lights that harmonise with poetic movements, this awe-inspiring installation awes and dances to music, creating an electrifying spectacle truly worthy of the exuberance of a new year.
Meticulously crafted with traditional handiwork, Dance of the Dragon also offers a modern spin on heritage and innovation, on top of paying tribute to the rich cultural traditions of the Han ethnic group.
The vibrant colours and playfulness of Tell Your Children’s artistic style artfully juxtapose with the fiery spirit of the dragon, creating a captivating display that sets the stage for a joyous welcome for Year of the Dragon 2024. This new beginning promises success, prosperity, and abundance for all.
And then there’s the light show. This 10-minute, immersive experience activates every 30 minutes and is a seamless integration of tradition with captivating and quirky digital animations. Shoppers can also share their experience at Dance of the Dragon with an Instagram filter, which features a festive greeting when capturing moments at the installation.
Commissioned by CapitaLand, Dance of the Dragon is set to bring shoppers and their loved ones together for joyful reunions and quality time this Lunar New Year.
