Air Play is the circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal world, transforming ordinary objects into those of uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have minds of their own, confetti turns into the night sky and an enormous canopy of hovering silk forever alters their future.

Where: Esplanade
Entry: SGD 40-70

4. Exhibition: China by Steve McCurry | Leica SL2
