Have you caught a glimpse of William Close's performance on the first weekend of the Singapore Night Festival? On the second weekend of the Singapore, William Close will present a new set of performances together with Austrian-based collection, Phoenix.

According to the festival guide, Phoenix's fiery and gravity-defying performances will be accompanied by William Close's "Earth Harp" that transforms the museum into a giant instrument. It looks like audience who will be attending the second weekend of the Singapore Night Festival will be treated to aerial dances and LED light performances.
