Notable Mentions

These were the noteworthy programmes held during the duration of the festival that added diversity and richness, which may include main programmes presented by NHB, as well as programmes that were initiated and driven by BBB stakeholders.

First Closure of Armenian Street
(
)

The popular reception of closing Armenian Street off to traffic to enable art and celebration to spill onto the street led to its eventual permanent pedestrianisation in 2019. During this debut, festival goers partied and interacted with arts and culture on the street, which included an interactive sound installation Plectrum Petanque, a roving line-up of artist performances and interactions curated by Ezzam Rahman, and of course the Tribal Gathering of Jaw Benders that featured lush sounds by The Observatory, Tiramisu, Spacedays and many more.

Night Watch
(
WOKmedia
)

30 giant pairs of googly animal eyes peered out from the corridors of SAM@8Q and illuminated the night sky. Modelled after the eyes of cats, birds, fishes and reptiles, the eyeballs acted as colourful metaphors that cast a questioning gaze about panoptic surveillance in our urban environment.

“Night Festival provides a national platform for our local performing talents to showcase their creativity, creates buzz and vibrancy in the precinct, and also brings Singaporeans together to celebrate and create new shared memories.”
