They may also access a Virtual Reality (VR) 360-degree Chinese opera stage tour via a QR code, which provides a peek into what goes on backstage at a Chinese opera performance, such as how makeup, costumes, props, headdresses and musical instruments eventually come together in harmony during a production. This immersive and educational stage tour is available in both English and Mandarin.

4. Traditional Arts Exhibition

Venue: Stamford Arts Centre, #01-06
Date: 12 Jun to 12 Sep 2021

This all-new experience draws visitors closer to traditional dance forms, taking them through a ten-minute immersive journey of the history and evolution of these forms. Paired with informative narrations, visitors can expect an all-rounded experience, as they interact with innovative digital concepts such as life-sized holographic mesh projections that surround them. The interplay between projections on both the foreground and background of the exhibition space aims to create a quasi-3D holographic experience, bringing these dances to life in the exhibition space.
