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.

Les Hommes Debout - The Standing Men
(
AADN
)

This poetic and interactive art installation of 16 lighted human-sized figurines on the Singapore Art Museum lawn called out to festival goers to get up close and personal and hear recorded stories told by residents, workers and tenants from the Bras Basah.Bugis precinct.

HOMEMADE
(
MOTUS
)

The stellar lineup of HOMEMADE’2017 included MOTUS, a homegrown Batucada Pop Band. Together with Indian percussion drummers from Damaru and Zumba dancers, MOTUS got the crowd moving at Armenian Street. Invigorated by this participation, MOTUS has since been participating in SNF annually, from roving performances to collaborations with diverse artists including Basque company Deabru Beltzak in 2018.

Night Festival Showdown
(
Grapple Max Dojo
)

Grapple MAX Dojo brought the wrestling ring to SMU’s Campus Green, where the pro wrestlers created an interactive “fight-club” experience through a fusion of improvised physical theatre, acrobatics and combat sport.

The Tree That Blinked
(
Karel Bata
)

Karel Bata’s The Tree That Blinked was a series of portraits that was projected onto the trees outside the National Museum of Singapore. These ambiguous faces donned expressions that seemed to change with the wind. 

“This milestone year is really a celebration of this tight-knit community of people and partners who have grown together with the festival, and contributed to its magic and success.”
