Paraboles 2.0

A collaboration between Singapore video artist Victric Thng and Compagnie Off from France, Paraboles 2.0 is the much anticipated outdoor performance during the Night Festival 2010.

Six giant satellite dishes spring from the urban ground right in front of the National Museum of Singapore. Stretching out to the sky, they remain still, ignoring all activities on Earth. At the core of the satellite dishes, stroboscopic light flashes quietly, signalling activity. They are looking at the stars, downloading cosmic data, absorbing the sound of space. Under each satellite, we hear faint abstract sounds. It is the music of the stars, solar winds, and radio waves, all mixed together in a surreal, random composition.
