The bridges are the stars of the festival's bicentennial edition
The popular i Light Marina Bay festival returns this year from 28 January to 24 February, and it's the biggest one yet. In addition to the Marina Bay promenade, the sustainable light art festival is also lighting up the Civic District, the Singapore River area, and Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park, the expansion thus reflected in the slightly modified name, "i Light Singapore." Taking place 200 years after Sir Stamford Raffles arrived on our island, this seventh edition of the festival is also a special bicentennial edition.
Visitors can look forward to a total of 33 exciting artworks - 32 light art installations and a huge multimedia show (at the Singapore River) - most of them telling a story of Singapore's history, evolution and future. What also makes this year's i Light Singapore bigger are the newly introduced fun and interactive programs, from yoga under the glow of a light installation to movie screenings.
After previewing several of the light art installations, we think this edition of i Light Singapore is a magical one you should not miss! As you explore the artworks, be sure to check out these beautiful and innovative installations that add a touch of magic to our historic landmarks.
7. Keys of Light
Where: Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park
You’re invited to interact with this one! Play a little tune on the piano, and watch different light displays get projected onto the space before you, activated by the different musical notes you play! You’re the master of your own unique theatrical show.
You can also enjoy the magic produced by our own local pianists. “Keys of Light” is also part of the festival’s fringe programs – catch young pianists from Singapore polytechnics and universities create even more incredible art with their musical talents on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, at the “SG Pianists x Keys of Light” free live performances.
