Shell Singapore's 125th Anniversary Gala
On 11th November 2016, 200 Shell partners, customers and employees gathered for a celebratory dinner at glitzy Capitol Theatre. An on-site heritage exhibition displayed preserved news articles about Shell from over the years. On the other side of the hall, students from the Institute of Technical Education showed off Eco-Traveller, the vehicle they contributed to Shell Eco-marathon Asia.
The evening opened with remarks by Ms Goh Swee Chen, Chairman of Shell Companies in Singapore, and led into a speech by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Key Shell executives, including Chad Holliday (Royal Dutch Shell Chairman) and Maarten Wetselaar (Integrated Gas and New Energies Director) also took to the stage.
The highlight of the evening, an immersive Virtual Reality performance, was revealed as the event drew to a close. Award-winning local choreographer and alumnae Shell-National Arts Council scholar, Vincent Yong, performed interpretative movements against simulated backdrops of Singapore's past, present and imagined future.
The performance brought to life Singapore’s transition from its early origins to current cityscape as well as Shell’s vision of the years ahead - inviting the audience to make the future with Shell.
