Dream - A Fire Garden Installation

Dream - A Fire Garden Installation
by Compagnie Carabosse

As part of the Singapore Arts Festival 2010, the Esplanade Park and Empress Place Precinct was transformed into a glowing wonderland. Created by renowned French fire alchemist, Compagnie Carabosse embellished the precinct with sculptures of metal, clay pots of blazing fire.
At the Esplanade Park, metallic spherical 'fireballs' studded with claypots of fire decorated the usually empty patch of green. Tall fire stovepipes gently billowing fire and smoke, resembles glowing gothic candles. Haunting new age tunes of Asian musicians, Andrew Lum and New Asia, completes the whole visual and sound experience.

This three-night fiery extravaganza made the usually cold Esplanade Park and Empress Place precinct into a heart-warming and lively place to hang out with family, friends, fellow citizens and tourists.
