Prepare to be awestruck this Autumn/Winter season as ION Orchard takes its 10th anniversary celebrations to the skies – both literally and metaphorically. In an Orchard Road first, performers from BANDALOOP, an American dance company that is a pioneer in vertical dance will showcase exhilarating performances on the mall’s iconic media façade, from 20 September to 6 October. Shoppers can immerse themselves in a series of exciting events from new store openings, to exclusive pop-ups, and special deals in conjunction with ION Orchard’s 10th anniversary celebrations.
“As ION Orchard turns 10, we celebrate our success together with our loyal shoppers in Singapore and abroad who have journeyed with us to where we are today – one of Singapore’s iconic lifestyle destinations along Orchard Road. Since the mall’s establishment in 2009, we have constantly curated stimulating experiences for our visitors, offering the best of luxury, fashion, and food, complete with fun and novel entertainment,” said Ms Yeo Mui Hong, Chief Executive of Orchard Turn Developments. “We are pleased to mark our 10th anniversary with one-of-a-kind aerial performances by BANDALOOP that will enliven Orchard Road. We strive to get better with age by bringing in fresh experiences with greater sophistication, innovation and excitement to ION Orchard, while upholding our top-notch service standards and attractive loyalty programmes.”
Pioneer vertical dance company BANDALOOP set to perform at ION Orchard
Visitors will be in for a powerful, perspective-changing experience as vertical dance company BANDALOOP uses climbing technology to challenge traditional conventions of dance and performance. Under the artistic direction of Amelia Rudolph, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality and intricate choreography to turn the dance floor on its side. Their work re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world.
ION Orchard’s media façade will act as the black-canvas backdrop for BANDALOOP’s exhilarating performances, which includes specially designed interactive light and music on display – set to be an outdoor spectacle for all visitors to Orchard Road.
Visitors can catch BANDALOOP in action at ION2 – the outdoor space at the entrance of ION Orchard – over three weekends from 20 September to 6 October, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7.00pm, 7.45pm & 8.30pm.

Shoppers can also follow all the action via BANDALOOP’s social media channels (@bandalooping) and hashtag #bandaloop.
Ms Ranita Sundra, Director, Retail and Dining, Singapore Tourism Board, said: “ION Orchard has curated a dynamic line-up of entertainment offerings, art exhibitions and pop-up events in celebration of their 10th anniversary. These add greater diversity to the offerings along Orchard Road, and enhance the overall appeal of the precinct. We applaud ION Orchard’s continued efforts to inject vibrancy into Orchard Road and we welcome more private sector stakeholders to come forward with creative ideas aligned with our vision for Orchard Road to be the lifestyle destination.”
