Spice up your nights this week

There’s something for everyone with rockin’ concerts, movies, plays, mimes and more this week, so get out there already!

 

Pitbull live in Singapore

One, two, three, four…it’s time to kick up some Latin flavor! Pitbull is bringing his ‘Rebelution’ to town and is all ready to rock up our shores with massive hits like I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho), Hotel Room Service and Shut It Down.

On Tuesday only at Fort Canning Park. Tickets at $95.

 

Those Who Can’t, Teach

Set in the backdrop of a secondary school, the play looks at the madcap lives of teachers and students, often with hilarious results. As the teachers struggle daily to ‘nurture and groom’, the students prefer to hang out and chillax (chill out). But at the same time, they all have to deal with the dreaded ‘parents’.

Updated with current themes relevant in our lives, the play brings together a brand new ensemble cast made up of stellar theatre actors Neo Swee Lin, Rodney Oliveiro, Siti Khalijah, Ian Tan and Najib Soiman, with original music by Philip Tan and set design by Vincent Lim.

Read all about our interview with the cast here.

From Wednesday to Friday only, at the Drama Centre Theater. Tickets from $20 to $50.

 

Paris Je T’aime screening

Through the neighborhoods of Paris, love is veiled, revealed, imitate, sucked dry, reinvented or awakened. Internationally renowned directors rediscover the city of Paris in a collective work about love. Most of the directors have written their own pieces, and they range from whimsical to romantic, to dramatic and tragic. These include a stellar lineup of Tom Tykwer, Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, Gus Van Sant, and Christopher Doyle, amongst other luminaries.

Tuesday only, at the Alliance Francaise. Tickets at $7.20.

 

The Manganiyar Seduction

In this colourful, uplifting and sensory show, acclaimed Indian theatre director Roysten Abel brings together the Manganiyar musicians from the deserts of Rajasthan and frames their music theatrically in a truly magical setting. Be seduced as they weave together their deeply rooted and complex history in a rousing array of choreography, song and rhythm, building to a breathtaking and memorable climax.

Wednesday to Friday only, at the Esplanade Theatre. Tickets from $20 to $80.

 

Antoine and The Paper Aeroplane

Blak Wulff Productions’ mime and music evocation of Antoine de Saint Exupery’s three-day desert sojourn after his 1935 plane crash – which prompted his writing The Little Prince – is a truly magical theatre experience.

Near to death, Antoine hallucinates visions of being befriended by a machine-like child – his aero-engine come alive – which playfully sustains his spirit, while the appearances of a curious snake and frolicsome fox mark the nights until a Bedouin finally rescues him.

Thursday to Sunday only, at the National Museum. Tickets at $20.
