5 Cool Events Of The Week: A Secret Theatrical Dining Experience, Artworks By The Bay & More

From Artworks By The Bay to an immersive theatrical dining experience, we've rounded up some interesting events to check out in the upcoming week.
Valhalla and the Chambers of Asgard 
Singapore’s first and only full-time immersive theatrical dining company Andsoforth’s latest production centers around Norse mythology – or more popularly digested by the masses as Thor, Loki , Valkyries and the like. Valhalla and the Chambers of Asgard take places in a secret location (revealed 24 hours before it starts), and you’ll be treated to a five-course meal to prepare for battle alongside the gods, a poetry slam and even a Bifrost bar where you can drink yourself silly. Many of their slots have been sold out, so do yourself a favour and book ahead of time. Details here. On now till Feb 15, various times Documentary screening of 'I Dream of Singapore' + 'Salary Day' Short Film
Award-winning filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin’s latest work takes a tender look at the hidden and often overlooked lives of those who have literally built Singapore, such as the many construction workers who live here. If you think about it, they’re often treated with callous indifference, or worse, barely concealed disdain by many – yet they’re an indispensable, living component to the creation of the country. Part of the proceeds from this screening will go towards non-profit organisation Transient Workers Count Too, so get down to it. Details here. Jan 5, 2pm The Projector, #05-00 Golden Mile Tower #FutureTogether
You’re probably familiar with Japanese art collective TeamLab’s kaleidoscopic light art works (they’re repsonsible for the Future World exhibition at ArtScience Museum) and their next exhibition, #FutureTogether, is an obvious nod to how Singapore’s future might look like. While the exhibition itself actually starts from January 16 to March 31, the outdoor artworks, consisting of these lit up ovoid sculptures at the Dragonfly Lake (among others) are already on display. Details here. 18 Marina Gardens Drive 2219: Futures Imagined
Since you’re already in the area, you might as well check out ArtScience Museum’s ongoing exhibition tackling the climate crisis. The exhibition has tapped on many local and international artists, architects, filmmakers, writers and theatre companies to imagine how Singapore might look like two hundred years from now. It unfolds over five segments which take visitors on a journey from 2019 to 2219. Illustrious Singapore names taking part in the exhibition includes artists Yanyun Chen, Priyageetha Dia, Robert Zhao and more. Details here. On now till Apr 5 ArtScience Museum, 6 Bayfront Avenue Be a part of Amanda Heng's performance

Heng will be leading a walk using a Five Stone (an inflatable public installation by artist Twardzik-Ching Chor Leng, commissioned for the recent Singapore Bicentennial) by having the audience carry it on their backs in a symbolic reference to the samsui women of yore. Details here. Jan 4, 4pm – 6pm Stamford Arts Centre, 155 Waterloo Street
