Note for Note: 2020 Stop, Look & Listen
16 poets lend their words to a diverse collage of poems that decipher, describe and define the city. In three unique sets, the poetry will be performed with musicians who will map a sonic landscape that blends city sounds with music. Each set follows a broad theme of motion, considering the city as speed, scene and sound. Here is rush hour and rest, reasons to linger in the lee of buildings or trespass down unfamiliar roads. Stop, Look & Listen is curated by Marc Nair and directed by Cherilyn Woo.
While the performance is free, you may reserve a seat in advance for all 3 sets at $5 to avoid disappointment.
(Each session is made up of 3 sets, with a 5-minutes interval in between each set.)

Over two weekends, The Arts House invites you to celebrate, share and enjoy stories from Singapore and beyond. In conjunction with the Light to Night Festival, this year's Prologue will turn this historic space into an intimate gathering of words through multidisciplinary performances, installations, and interactive activities. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, embark on a journey away from the bustle of the Civic District through urban landscapes of cities new and old, past and present, real and imagined.
