River Nights is back for the third year, celebrating the Singapore River’s changing identity through the years – from vital trading artery in the colonial past to the current magnet for locals and visitors.
The theme this year is Phantasmagoria. Programs on both sides of the river, across Empress Place and Boat Quay, will inspire and delight in these nights of magic. In an era of sensorial saturation, suffused with virtual and hyper reality, Phantasmagoria inspires new exploration and play on the ambiguity of space, time, and motion. The Singapore River at night presents a perfect canvas of “bright lights, big city”.
Look forward to dance and music performances – including a unique theatrical experience that merges the ancient Japanese theatre form of Noh with modern 3D scenography – light installations and more.
