Gilles Peterson Worldwide DJ Festival

“Alors on danse…” as the popular French dance hit goes. Gilles Peterson returns yet again with his smashing success of a music and dance festival which follows the simple recipe of stringent artiste selection combined with a party environment in some of the most exotic locales around the world. No excuses, it’s time to whip out those dancing shoes! Here’s our pick on who not to miss.

Friday and Saturday, August 27 and 28 only, at Zouk. Tickets at $30 per day or $50 for two days.

Lang Fang Chronicles installation and exhibition

Who’s heard of Lang Fang? Explore the unknown territory and history of this relatively insignificant destination and how its history parallels with that of Singapore’s, revealed in a series of visual art, theatre and film presentations.

Until September 26, at SAM @ 8Q.

Shopping for Chopin play

If you’re in the mood for love, don’t miss out on this touching performance centering around Jun, a Chinese pianist who comes to Singapore in search of a better future, and his blossoming love for a mute girl customer who shares his passion for Chopin. Oh, and of course she’s beautiful. We’ll have the Kleenex on standby.

From Thursday to Tuesday, August 26 to 31 only, at the Arts House. Tickets at $25 (standard).

The Pawnshop screening

Wind down your weekend comfortably with this multiple award winning film with this highly unusual premise. So many people go to the pawnshop, but their reasons for doing so may vary drastically. It can be seen as a place that thrives on misfortunes, yet offers the promise of hope and redemption to some. Highly engaging!

Friday, August 27 only, at Sinema Old School. Tickets at $10.
