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.

The Duel
(
Lords of Lightning
)

A lightning battle where bolts of lightning were shot from bodies captivated the crowd and crackled the festival sky with visceral human energy and volatile electricity. This spectacular display of science mixed with artistry is the outcome of the collaborative effort between  innovative scientist Carlos van Camp and UK’s award-winning Arcadia.

Ember Rain
(
Starlight Alchemy
)

Local collective Starlight Alchemy returned with an interactive fire sculpture, which required festival goers to pedal on a bicycle to create a burst of blazing embers that would fall from the 5-metre high tower.

Graffiti Alive
(
Arup Singapore
)

Local architectural consultancy firm, Arup Singapore, used integrated motion sensors and RGB spotlights to bring local street art to life along the Armenian Street alleyway.

Design (Re)Imagined
(
SMU Arts and Culture Management
)

Held in conjunction with SNF, the SMU Arts and Culture Management Programme activated and transformed an under-utilised corridor at the National Design Centre into a public engagement corner as part of an envisioning exercise of value and future of the National Design Centre. Through interactive activities such as a DIY sticker wall, many shared what design meant to them, and what their ideal design centre could look like.

“The idea is for unexpected encounters at different corners of the festival grounds, which we have creatively curated for that element of surprise. We invite everyone to explore the numerous interesting spaces around the precinct, participate and interact with the different acts, performers and art installations we have created and planned.”

— Jervais Choo
