Singapore Arts Festival Opening ‘Water Fools’ at Boat Quay – The Boat
24 May 2008
Part of the Water Wonders Series
Can one walk on the sea? Drive on the river? Acclaimed French street theatre company IIotopie brings Water Fools to Boat Quay. In a mystical and magical journal, a man travels to Singapore’s popular waterfront, arriving in a sputtering little car. His car breaks down, so he gets out and reads a paper. Meanwhile a passing cyclist sprays water into his face.. and then his head suddenly bursts into flames.
Phantasmagoric and whimsical water creatures loom from the river, as fireworks unfold in an aquatic extravaganza. Giant mechanical sets that turn everyday objects into fantastic machines look set to wow audiences, as they take the man beyond the wildest dreams of his humble car ride into a dazzling opening show at the Singapore Arts Festival.
