The Singapore Night Festival (SNF) is back this year after the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to take a hiatus over the last two years. With a focus on placemaking to bring vibrancy to the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct, SNF has grown together with Singaporeans over the years.
We took the opportunity during the pandemic to reflect on the 12 year-old festival, and how we can best present a festival that has such big heartshare amongst our audiences, and looked deeper into the ways in which we can add value to the cultural landscape in this new norm.
In celebrating the 13th edition this August, we found the theme of “Rebirth” fitting as we chart a new path for the festival, since the last edition in 2019. The festival itself emerges into this new cycle of its existence after being around for more than a decade, with a new identity and focus on the dynamic and unique Bras Basah Bugis precinct that SNF calls home. It is also fitting as we join the nation in emerging stronger as a covid resilient community, mindful of the important role that heritage and culture plays in this.
This year we embrace the hyperlocal, as we work even closer with our numerous Bras Basah.Bugis stakeholders to explore the precinct’s unique identity and character, and celebrate its rich heritage and culture. SNF also relooks at the magic of the night – a cycle which occurs every 24 hours that many take for granted – and finding the special in the ordinary. As always, since SNF’s inception, an important feature has always been our support for local talent, as a stage upon which our artists can shine. This year, we have continued to work with the talented Singaporean artist community to curate dynamic experiences celebrating the rich precinct.
A plethora of light installations, projection mapping artworks, and performance stages located across the precinct will bring to life spaces such as Fort Canning Park, Capitol and Armenian Street. This year’s highlight act is an immersive theatre performance where we will see iconic characters of famous Cathay films from Singapore’s glorious cinematic past come to life in this multiverse production. In addition, there will be numerous intimate programmes which will allow you to tour and experience the precinct in a different way, in a different light.
I would like to welcome everyone back to SNF, and to partake in our festivities, connecting with the exciting Bras Basah Bugis precinct and all it has to offer, and to celebrate all of us coming together again. Let the street party begin!
