The show will focus on the story of three rabbits exploring Chingay in pursuit of finding ways to make their community, BunnyMoon, happier. The rabbits discover and learn more about how to benefit their community through observing Singapore’s culture.

The performance backdrop, known as the Container Art Installation, is the largest art installation in Chingay’s history. Designed by local artist Sam Lo, the installation was co-created with 480 youths, and is 18 metres high and over 60 metres wide.

The artwork depicts a Chingay performer adorned with cultural motifs, costumes, and props. It also has a web of hands, symbolising the diverse community that celebrates Singaporean culture. The performer is pictured dancing toward the sun, representing a new beginning and reminding us to look ahead and remain resilient in the face of challenges as a nation.
