Location: Online 
Date: 2 Oct – 30 Oct 2020
Hour: All-day
Fee: Free

In HOMEBOUND, SMU Symphonia presents an allegorical digital music picture book of Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev, deconstructed to draw parallels to the pandemic with childlike whimsicality. 

Viewers will have the option of a read-through or a click-through experience as you follow Peter in his preparation for a long-awaited concert. Tragedy strikes with the unexpected arrival of the 'Wolf', leaving Peter's dreams crippled, his instruments crushed, and his friends taken away. As the situation turns grave, will Peter find a way to regain the joy in music he used to feel?

HOMEBOUND is part of the SMU Arts Festival, A-PART, which was devised amid the Circuit Breaker period as a creative response to our shared experiences. The festival presents 8 original productions, including HOMEBOUND, to uplift the morale of a global stay-home audience.

Date: 2 Oct – 25 Oct 2020 
Hour: All-day
Fee: Free

Painting with Light is National Gallery Singapore's annual film festival dedicated to films that explore artistic practices, art institutions, and moments in art history that resonate in the present.

This year, the festival returns online with its Southeast Asian Shorts section, featuring stories that reframe the notion of “home.” 

In this anthology of short films, tangible and intangible aspects of home—physical dwelling and lived experience—interact in different contexts. Collectively, they reveal the fragility of the concept itself, especially in the face of profound global changes that impact local environments.
