“January with a Bang!” is an event by the non-profit initiative SPORE Art Salon that will be happening at the Blujaz Cafe on the 31st of January, from 7pm to 11pm in its bid to give Singapore’s creative individuals a cracking start to 2012. The night’s line-up includes the presentation of a video installation art, a drawing session, a dance-centric hip-hop performance, an acoustic duo and even a National Poetry Slam winner.
More specifically, the drawing session will feature live models, one of whom is Johnston Cheng, who starred in Singapore’s film representation at the 54th Venice Bienanale – “The Cloud of Unknowing”. Other interesting highlights of the night include performances from musicians like The Russian Dolls, poets, dancers, actors and more.
