Welcome to “See What See”, the laziest series on DANamic.ORG. Travel around Singapore and do your touristy sightseeing – all through your screen! The best way to discover Singapore is through a local’s eyes, so take a peek from wherever you are – through the magic that is Instagram embeds. Here’s the best part: it’s all free!
“We believe in making the arts accessible for everyone. As a not-for-profit arts centre, we are driven by our mission to entertain, engage, educate and inspire through the arts. Our social motivations guide our programmes so that there is always something for everyone to enjoy.”
The Esplanade, or 榴莲头/”durian heads”, has sat comfortably at Marina Bay for the past thirteen years. Completed in 2002, Singapore’s centre for the arts has seen more than 28,000 shows and 20 million guests come through its halls. With one of the busiest performance schedules among the world’s concert halls, the Esplanade is still keeping in line with making the arts accessible, with free events happening almost every day.
If we’ve piqued your interest so far (was it the mention of “free”?), take a virtual tour around the Esplanade through these curated picks from Instagram.

And straight after his choral conducting session, Singapore choral conductor-composer Darius Lim heads to the Esplanade Concourse to lead everyone gathered for a chorus sing-along! It was almost magical how the crowd was transformed into a beautiful choir with Darius’ skilful guidance. #esplanade #singapore #voices #chorus #choir #sgmusic #sgarts #harmonies #artlanders #alistsg A photo posted by Esplanade Singapore (@esplanadesingapore) on
