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.

Fuerza Bruta
(
Fuerza Bruta
)

Globally-acclaimed Argentinean troupe Fuerza Bruta returned to Singapore with an immersive theatre show encompassing suspended ‘stages’, up-close-and-personal encounters, and aerial acts at Cathay Green.

MMO
(
Sweet Tooth by Cake
)

Sweet Tooth by Cake surprised festival goers with another tantalising roving theatrical performance - the MMOs or Mystical Meandering Occurrences, where three ethereal mascots roamed and burst into spontaneous performances along the walkways of Queen Street and National Design Centre.

Late-Night Texting
(
Centre 42
)

For this edition that was held in conjunction with SNF, this now-annual programme continued to champion local writing and performance with a showcase of more than 25 bite-sized performances by emerging theatre groups, independent collectives and artists. From dramatised readings of two original full-length plays, an interactive dating simulation game, reinterpretations of Singapore theatre classics to BooksActually’s pop-up store, there was something for both new and old audiences.

A Date with Traditional Arts
(
Stamford Arts Centre
)

The newly-refurbished Stamford Arts Centre delighted festival goers with an evening of thoughtful performances from traditional glove puppetry by Paper Monkey Theatre, to contemporary Malay dance by P7:1SMA and Indian classical dance by Bhaskar’s Arts Academy.

“SNF is 12 years old and many of our festival-goers have grown along with us on our festival journey. Year on year, they have come to expect new experiences that transform the Bras Basah.Bugis district, challenging them to see these spaces in a new light."
