Catch Indian fusion dance choreographer and performer Iswarya Jayakumar as she melds both contemporary and Indian classical dance styles in this presentation.

PheNoumenon is the latest creation by founding artistic director of T.H.E Dance Company Kuik Swee Boon. 

This work examines the relationship between Man and the natural phenomenon that surrounds him. The splitting of a free spirit from hegemonic thinking. Habits, cultures and systems that hide under the illusory cover of a prosperous modern society. Looking around, what else can we learn from the political, technological and climate chaos that envelops our world?

When: December 13-14 
Where: Esplanade Theatre Studio
Entry: SGD 38 

3. Sentosa Island Lights 2019

Faces of Yangon began with one haunting image of a monk captured by Steve Golden on a weekend trip to Yangon in 2015.

The image inspired what would become a two-year project. Photographer Steve Golden travelled to Yangon frequently, exploring every street, seeking the heart of Asia’s last authentic city on the brink of explosive change.

When: December 13-15 
Where: Leica Store Singapore   
Entry: Free

5. Memento Stella by Takashi Makino

An epic, constellational visual masterpiece conceived as a reminder to 'remember the stars', Makino explores the beginnings of all phenomena. It began from a shapeless universal field of primary matter not too different from the birth of stars and planets in the vortexes of space dust.

Through frame-rate manipulation, super-imposition and multiple exposures underscored by a majestic soundtrack, Makino conjures up a truly cosmic cinematic experience that will continue to reverberate through each viewer long after leaving the cinema.

When: December 13

Entry: SGD 15
