Wonderland
April is shaping up to be a really good month over at the ArtScience Museum — earlier in the month saw the opening of Rewild Our Planet (Singapore’s first social Augmented Reality exhibition), and now, the blockbuster Wonderland. One of the largest and most comprehensive exhibitions on Lewis Carroll’s evergreen Alice in Wonderland, Wonderland, developed by the Australian Centre for the Moving  Image,features more than 300 artefacts such as first-edition books, costumes and original animated works and promises to be heavily interactive. Singapore is the first stop on the exhibition’s global tour, so don’t miss out. More details here. On now till September 22 ArtScience Museum, 6 Bayfront Avenue Portishead's Beth Gibbons — Symphony No. 3
Trip hop fans will, well, be tripping over this treat: Beth Gibbons, frontwoman of pioneering band Portishead, is releasing new music for the first time in 11 years. She’s teamed up with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra for a recording of the Polish composer Henryk Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3, otherwise known as the “Symphony of Sorrowful Songs.” Now if you’re a fan of the Portishead, you’ll know that they excel at piercingly haunting tunes — expect more of this heavenly goodness at this screening. More details here. April 19, 4.30pm and May 4, 5.30pm The Projector, #05-00 Golden Mile Tower Andsoforth presents: Treasure Island
If you’re looking for something a little off-kilter this long weekend, Treasure Island by local theatre company AndSoForth is a great option. Known for their immersive and interactive theatre-meets-dining experiences, Treasure Island is their latest mad-cap venture that’s set to take place in a 20,000 sq ft warehouse — the location of which will be disclosed after you sign up. Expect a multi-room experential quest and — in their own words — “maybe even find the most elusive thing in the world, pleasure.” Piqued? Get your tickets here. April 20, 7pm – 11pm   Marquee Singapore Grand Opening Month with Steve Aoki
Last weekend it seemed like the whole of Singapore was partying at Marquee and if you missed out and were totally FOMO, try again this weekend (if only to make your IG look happening); electronic staples Above & Beyond and Steve Aoki will be taking to the decks. More details here. April 19 and 20, 10pm – 6am Marquee, 2 Bayfront Avenue, #B1-67 Skechers Sundown Festival 2019
