TGIF!: Your weekend guide (15-17 May 2015)

See Roald Dahl’s tale of the big friendly giant, ‘The BFG’, come to life on stage with puppets, in the hands of Singapore theatre company The Finger Players. 

Dutch DJ Dyro makes his first Singapore appearance on Friday at our personal favourite strobe- and dance-music-filled oasis, Zouk, with support from resident DJ Hong. 

Start your weekend with this all-evening, open-air, multi-venue Circular Road Block Party, featuring a host of spinners, including Bass Sekolah, Yudreem and Paul Michael.

If you’re a fan of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s ‘The Little Prince’, don’t miss this exhibition featuring sculptures from his book. The exhibition, part of Voilah! 2015, features 13 white-coloured sculptures, which will be presented to visitors in the dark at Alliance Francaise de Singapour.

Singapore contemporary dance company Frontier Danceland presents 'Sides 2015', its annual mid-year production, a triple-bill featuring choreography that includes a Singapore work, an Australian piece and a new production that is the result of no-hold-barred improvisation among the company’s artistes. 

'The Tempest'

Whip out those picnic mats and baskets and head down to Fort Canning Park for the annual edition of 'Shakespeare in the Park'. This year’s play is The Tempest’, the tale of an exiled duke who can command fairies and monsters, but cannot escape the island in which he is trapped until his betrayers arrive via a shipwreck.

Be awed by Conrad the sexy swashbuckler in ‘Le Corsaire’, he who sails the seas to find the beautiful harem girl Medora. This re-invention of the 1856 choreography is performed by the English National Ballet at Esplanade Theatre, set to a rousing score by nine composers and featuring lush sets and costumes by Hollywood film designer, Bob Ringwood. 

Singapore’s very own Aldrin, the talented DJ-producer with great material (deep house and disco meets techno) will be at Kyo this Saturday with resident EJ Missy.

'Every Other Freckle' - Alt-J

On Sunday, Mercury Award-winning trio Alt-J return to ply their eclectic reverb-smothered indie-rock at Hard Rock Hotel in Sentosa.
