TGIF!: Your weekend guide (18-20 Mar 2016)

Malaysia’s “Queen of Jazz” Sheila Majid celebrates 30 years of music this year. She returns to revisit her signature hits over the past three decades.

While she is often portrayed as a passive character drive to tragic madness by Hamlet, this reimagining of Ophelia realises her as a character in her own right, and as a lens through which to examine the grey areas of humanity. 

Get ready to dance… very hard this Friday as Belgian hardhouse DJ Coone brings his brand of heart-stopping music to Zouk.
