This year’s annual Singapore River Festival will be taken to a new level with a one-of-a-kind opening act of a tightrope performance across the Singapore River, to be presented by French acrobatic theatre production, Underclouds Cie.
Titled Crossings, this will be Underclouds Cie’s debut in Asia. Crossings is inspired and conceived by the story of the Singapore River, aptly suited for Singapore River Festival 2016, which this year carries the theme of “River Connections“, celebrating the culture, lifestyle and history of the River.
This year’s theme has been chosen in celebration of the connection of our past to the present, and the River to the community. With a blend of tightrope acrobatics, dazzling choreography, music effects and multimedia projections, Crossings explores this extraordinary theme of connections in our lives.
A variety of performances and activities will be hosted across Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay over the two-day Singapore River Festival.
Whether you are into street festivals, acrobatic acts or simply want to party the night away at the Silent Disco, this year’s Singapore River Festival is definitely not to be missed.
There is something for everyone; from the young to the old. The anchor programme, Singapore River (SR) Signatures will once again focus on Singapore’s favourite lifestyle activity – eating!
This year’s theme for SR Signatures is ‘Where Chefs Eat’ – recommended eats from four locally-celebrated chefs will be featured. Check out the 21 winning dishes, 15 of them are from new winning restaurants.
These restaurants along the River will also be dishing out promotions in conjunction with the revelry, so don’t pass them up!
