The Singapore River Festival will focus on visualising the Singapore identity through performances such as Les Voyageurs (Travellers) by French artist Cedric Le Borgne which feature sculptures made of light, taking human form.

La Fura Dels Baus, the headline act for the festival, is a world-class act which will present a series of shows, specially curated for Singapore, including their iconic Human Net performance with aerialists supended over the Singapore River.

Works by Singapore artists such as Aderyl Tan, 25, whose piece at 76 Circular Road represents her viewpoint of the river as a theme park.

Moon Malek's work at 61 Circular Road draws from folklore about the mythical mermaid. The artist, 22, is enamoured of the visual representation of a chimera - a mythical animal formed from parts of different animals - as is evident in the Merlion.

HAVE a fear of heights? Then you probably won't try this: being suspended over the Singapore River by a 220-tonne crane. Instead, leave it to the professionals - world-renowned Spanish theatrical group La Fura Dels Baus, who will be headlining the inaugural Singapore River Festival this year.
