Designer extraordinaire Ron Arad presents 720°, a monumental outdoor video installation that will wow you with its immense size and creativity. Gather your friends and family, and enter this magical interactive stage – shaped like a coliseum – right here in Singapore at the beautiful Gardens by the Bay.

The massive installation is an unforgettable sight. A perfect circle 18 metres in diameter, 720° is made up of 5,600 silicon cords totalling over 37 kilometres in length and suspended from a height of eight metres. These lightweight rods – swishing and swaying easily – serve as an interactive video screen for both sides of the 360-degree stage.

Beyond its sheer scale, the experimental format of 720° allows for a breathtaking programme of projected performance films by some of the leading names of contemporary art. For Singapore International Festival of Arts 2016, the opening week of 720° features a specially created production melding live performance with digital multimedia, helmed by film director, video artist and performance-maker, Brian Gothong Tan.

An Everything I Want Production with original design and production by Ron Arad. Originally commissioned by the Roundhouse, London.
