TGIF!: Your weekend guide (1-3 Mar 2013)

Two months have passed and March has come rolling along. Therefore just a reminder, you have exactly 10 months left to achieve whatever goals you have set for yourselves at the start of the year. Scary isn’t it? Before we unearth any introspection in you, we would also like to remind you that it’s the weekend! We have scoured Singapore for the best events so that you can welcome March in style.

It seems March is a month of Mandopop and the first act coming to Singapore as part of his ‘live’ world tour will be the multi-talented Taiwanese performer Show. He will be bringing his showcase and it promises to be a high energy concert as he is bringing an entourage of 124 dancers with him in his performance. His unique stage performances will include varied dance repertoires which include African, break and Jazz dances. If you are a card carrying Mandopop fan, this is surely a concert that is not to be missed.

For those of you who want a bit of avant-garde music to wind down your Saturday, catching Tim O'Dwyer ensemble at the Esplanade is the perfect way to do so. This performance is in collaboration with other likeminded musicians like pianist Aya Sekine, drummer Darren Moore, bassist Tony Makarome and Vuk Krakovic on the violin. Come along for a night of mind exploring music at the Esplanade Recital Studio.

Zouk’s popular night flea market is back this Sunday. The highlight of this year’s event would be that they are inviting popular local Instagram users to sell their wares at this year’s event. If you are interested in setting up a stall there, you can do so by following Zouk’s Instagram account, like a picture connected to the flea market event and then comment with your e-mail address. You will know that you are selected if you get a reply from the good people at Zouk.


Of course we are not forgetting Zouk’s main purpose, to make us dance the night away. On Saturday, Zouk’s resident DJs Formative and Hong will be helming the decks to showcase what they can bring to the dance floor.

This weekend is your chance to watch some real kung fu guys strut their kung fu stuff at the Kallang Theatre. Brought to you by the Shaolin club and Shaolin temple, it promises to be a night where everybody will be come out kung fu fighting.

The design society will be holding a weeklong fare starting this Saturday celebrating anything and everything design and everything related to it. Called Craft, it kicks off with a conference held at the LASALLE College of the arts. Some of the names invited to speak in the conference are, visual artist Robert Zhao, educator Hans Tan and celebrated film maker, Royston Tan. Highlights of the festival include the Tiong Bahru design trail where you can soak up the creative energy of the area.
