A Mixed Media Performance encompassing light design, dance, music and visuals in an evening of experiential showcase to trace the past and present relationship between our rivers and communities.
Appalled by the deteriorating state of our rivers, River Meets Light aims to inspire the need to restore our river heritage and to reaffirm the importance of protecting our national treasures for future generations. It also seeks to act as a catalyst to stimulate artists and to engage the general public to experiment with sustainable and creative ways of using recycled objects in the environment.
Utilising river sites as the performing stage, this site-specific work incorporates the ebb and flow of creative expressions along the river, proving that through new art and culture, we can still progress while protecting the environment.
The first workshop presentation, held in conjunction with International Day of Action for Rivers on March 12th, will lead to a sequence of events, including a premiere performance during the George Town Festival at the end of July. Concurrently, an exhibition will be conducted to raise awareness of the unfortunate state of our rivers and the need for its revitalization.
