    “What do you want to be,
    Strange.R?”
    A project by [+O] in collaboration with
    Oforzero with the participation of
    Strangers and Friends
    An art installation project that seeks to engage with the intricate
    relationships and wonders inherent in our daily life; between people,
    objects and the environment, through the process of creating.
    A chance encounter between strangers in a city,
    a conversation, a promise made, leading to the
    transformation of an everyday object into something
    that seems to obtain a life of its own – a Strange·R.

    Found & Lost
    Osage Singapore
    An exhibition featuring the works of eight Singapore
    artists concerned with questions of representation
    in relation to the act of drawing, Found & Lost serves
    as an extension of the ideas previously explored in
    Aversions, a drawing publication project curated by Guo-
    Liang Tan. With Singaporean artist Cheo Chai-Hiang’s
    work as the backdrop for their investigations,
    Ang Soo Koon, Cheong Kah Kit, Khiew Huey
    Chian, Charles Lim, Matthew Ngui, Shubigi Rao,
    Erika Tan and Ian Woo each explore and
    respond to the boundaries of drawing within
    their own artistic practices, delving into
    issues such as peripheral vision,
    perpetual delay, the impossibility of
    the image, and the fragmentation of
    language and memory in relation
    to the act of drawing.

    23 May – 12 Jul, 10am – 7pm
    Daily (closed on Monday)
    Osage Singapore,

    Reminiscient
    The Observatory

    This sound and visual installation is an extension exhibit of Invisible Room,
    an unusual ‘live’ performance by pre-eminent Singapore rock band
    The Observatory in collaboration with filmmaker Ho Tzu Nyen.
    The highlight, however, will be the revealing of the panoptigan structure
    in which musicians of The Observatory had performed, a space that was
    concealed during the actual ‘live’ runs of the show.

    9 – 14 Jun, every 2 hours between
    11am – 8pm (last screening at 7pm)
    LASALLE College of the Arts

    Red
    Stalker Theatre Company (Australia)
    A unique hybrid piece comprising dance theatre, live music and circus-style arts, Red
    forms the second part of a triptych of performances developed by David Clarkson,
    Co-Artistic Director of Stalker, a world renowned physical theatre company.
    Red explores the end of the world as foreseen by Western science and science fiction:
    Imagine the Earth in several billion years, faced with an imminent collision with the
    sun. What forms will humans take? What will be our obsessions and desires as we
    prepare for the earth to fall into the sun? How do we dance goodbye to the Earth
    we once knew?
    Exploring the texture and ephemeral nature of falling, suspension and gravity, Red is
    an extreme movement work of frenetic beauty portraying a journey to the end of
    time, into the remote landscape of the imagination.

    The Diamond
    The Dream Engine (UK)
    Watch the gigantic Diamond come to life. Unfurling like a transparent giant orchid, it
    achieves full bloom at a height of 11 metres. Be mesmerised as the solo aerial dancer
    within moves and twirls to the crescendos of music and colourful, dancing lights,
    suspended on what seems to be nothing but a column of light. After dark, the lights
    reflect and refract in crystalline formations, creating ghostly images that mirror the
    hypnotic beauty of the dancer.

    Transports Exceptionnels
    Compagnie Beau Geste (France)
    A tender love duet for a dancer and a mechanical digger created by French choreographer
    Dominique Boivin, accompanied by the dramatic voice of Maria Callas, Transports
    Exceptionnels is a witty interpretation of the pas de deux dance tradition. A modern
    romance between iron and flesh evoking a playful and rugged poetic industrialism,
    Transports Exceptionnels offers a glimpse into an unexpected moment of emotion and
    grace between man and machine.

    Singapore Arts Festival 2009 Closing Celebration

    Crackers?
    The World Famous (UK)

    Not for the fainthearted. Crackers? is an exhilarating pyrotechnic exprience performed in the round, in a dazzling assemblage of fireworks, multimediaprojection, performance and music.

    Come and experience the riotous displays of fire and smoke, spinning wheels, moments of delicate beauty and the cacophony of pyrotechnic sounds.

    Crackers? is a rousing celebration of the explosive beauty of fire and fireworks and a unique exploration of our attitudes to risk. What are you afraid of?

    Suitable for ages 10 and above.
    Standing room only.

    For the Closing Celebration pyrotechnics show, it says "standing room only" so does that mean we cannot set up our tripod there?

    For all who are keen on what the set up looks like in Yishun..

    There are 3 passage ways into the arena see Pic #1 (RED ARROW)
    Each passage way looks something like in pic #2

    Guess, all going to experienced the sound, smoke and light real close.
    Thats why its only suitable for age 10 and above.

    Mod : If pictures are not allow in this thread, please remove them..

    so is it a good idea to bring our camera into the area? and most likely we'll come out from the place with a dusty camera and lens

    anybody stay near yishun? is there any high floors around there where we can setup our tripod there to shoot fireworks?

    We can go up the high rise blocks but I believe the residents of the blocks will also be part of the audience so I dun think it's convienent to setup the whole corridors with our tripods and shoot. After all, they are the residents there.

    Maybe if there's space then we can just setup there. If not, it's better not to cause unneccesary disturbance to them.

    Hopefully it will clear if not it will be a drenched no show as I dunno how the people wanting to go in will queue in the rain. It's madness. No shelter at the holding/waiting area.

    Wow wow wow! What an experience to be right in the midst of fireworks. If shooting from inside, remember to put on the lens hood to minimise the falling fireworks ashes from dropping onto the lens. Tripod inside might be too hard due to the crowd, especially if at the front row.
