In a city where change is inevitably rapid, it's no surprise to know what was once Singapore's second power station is now an event space where art, music and theatre amalgamate. The cavernous Pasir Panjang Power Station is set to charm arts lovers once again on March 13 with Running with Strippers 2021: This Close.
No strippers involved, the full-day arts affair is a coupling of beatmaker Intriguant's Uploading series and contemporary performance company Cake’s Running with Strippers platform which champions adventurous artmaking in unexpected venues like Pasir Panjang Power Station. All under one massive roof, the event spotlights the creative pairings of local musicians and video artists in a heady rush of kaleidoscopic audio-visual gigs.
Expect a diverse range of genres and personas with pairings including Cayenne x JJ Low, deførmed x Clarrot, sl_owtalk x Yeyoon Avis Ann, BGourd x Tristan Lim, Kribo x Natasha Hassan, and Jema x orderstudio. With such a lineup, you best believe it's going to be a feast for the eyes and ears.
Beyond The Music Stage, engage your senses with Planet. The part performance, part music and visual combo resurfaces some of Shakespeare's most moving sonnets. They will be delivered by four singular actresses against the surreal, pop art backdrop of Japanese digital artist Kota Yamaji.
Intriguant has also teamed up with visual artist Irsyad Ishak, visual artist-filmmaker Sam Shields, and scriptwriter-director Andy Pang to bring forth Somni, an experiential boxed installation that lulls visitors into a roping waking dreamscape.
Like any physical events, safety measures are implemented at all times. Audiences are split into two separate Zones with staggered arrivals and exits. For more information including tickets, visit runningwithstrippers2021.peatix.com.
