Housed at Stamford Art Centre, this exhibition uses masterful storytelling and immersive technology to spotlight how traditional dance has evolved over the ages.
Witness these dances come to life around you through life-sized 360-degree, quasi-3D holographic projections, immerse yourself in the rhythm of these graceful movements as you explore via a self-guided video tour, and get a first-hand perspective from six dance pioneers on their efforts to preserve traditional dance as a lasting artform through the passing of time.
5. July activities @ Singapore Discovery Centre
Head down to Singapore Discovery Centre (SDC) for some fun and family bonding this July. Pay a visit to the reopened Black Lake Laser Battlefield and Black Lake Facility for a thrilling game of laser tag or a multi-sensorial escape room adventure, then catch a screening of Fast & Furious 9 or Marvel Studios' Black Widow at the world-class iWERKS Theatre.
If you have younger kids, be sure to check out the drop-in craft activities available this July, where your budding artists will create sticker postcards or commemorate Racial Harmony Day by colouring pictures of SDC's mascot SingaPaw.
Can't get enough of exploring other realms after visiting ArtScience Museum's Virtual Realms: Videogames Transformed exhibition? Good news: The ArtScience Museum is launching a new and permanent VR Gallery to bring visitors novel immersive experiences using state-of-the-art VR headsets and controllers.
The gallery's opening exhibition? Hyperrealities, a VR exhibition that spotlights a trio of innovative artworks by contemporary artists Olafur Eliasson, Marina Abramović and Anish Kapoor. Simply slip on the VR headset to dive into a dazzling mix of alternate realities where you'll explore the intricate networks of muscle and flesh within your own body (think Magic School Bus, albeit without the bus), touch and shape rainbows, and experience the devastating chaos of crumbling polar ice caps.
