5 things to do this weekend: 4 — 6 May
May the Fourth be with you
PARTY | Studio Electronique feat. Tube & Berger
Join in the Studio Electronique party series for a night dedicated to underground electronic music. Renowned German DJ duo Tube & Berger, whose real names are Arndt Rörig and Marko Vidoviz, will be playing their chart-topping deep house music to the masses, with experience dating back to when they were just 16.
PARTY | Zouk: Space Oddity
One of the top clubs in the world (and responsible for our virgin clubbing days) will be marking their 27th anniversary and third placement in DJ Mag's 'Top 100 Clubs' with a party across three days. After iconic American DJ Marshmello headlines the first day, British DJ Ben Nicky spins next while Zouk's All Stars resident DJs — Hong, Matthew and Jeremy Boon — conclude the celebrations. There will also be giveaways including Zouk's anniversary pins by local pin company, Pindemic, and alcohol-infused gummies by Martell NCF among many others.
FILM | Singular Screens
Part of the Singapore International Festival of Arts 2018, Asian Film Archive has curated films from Iran, Thailand and Brazil. 13 of them will be making their premiere here, such as Denmark's Team Hurricane, a chick flick about punk teenage girls, and India's Ashwatthama, about a young boy's life after a group of bandits killed his mother.
PLAY | Shakespeare in the Park: Julius Caesar
London-based theatre director Guy Unsworth will be helming the return of Shakespeare in the Park with Julius Caesar, this time set against the backdrop of current global affairs. Starring Malaysian actress Jo Kukathas as the titular character, the cast will be joined by Ghafir Akbar, Daniel Jenkins, Thomas Pang and Julie Wee. A sign language-interpreted performance will also be available on 10 May.
EXHIBITION | Motherhood Exhibition
The stories of four mothers — fashion consultant Nin Choong-Wilkins, ex-speed skater Sui Chin Han-McKeand, artist Kumari Nahappan and educator Carmee Lim — will be featured in the first edition of this exhibition for Mother's Day. Four emotions will represent each woman: Guilt, Play, Trepidation and Zest, into a physical art form such as a video and a sculpture. Look out for four dishes inspired by the mothers as well, which will be available on 8 May.
