What's on this week
Simryn Gill: Hugging the Shore
Gill’s first major solo show in South-East Asia comprises several series of photographs, which all serve as a documentation of her surroundings and how they engage with more abstract elements like time and culture.
The Singapore Repertory Theatre’s annual Shakespeare in the Park production returns with The Bard’s final play. Set on a magical island governed by the wizardly Prospero, nothing is quite what it seems in this comedy of fairies, beasts and long-lost relatives.
The 39 Steps
A humorous mix of Alfred Hitchcock thrill and Monty Python tomfoolery, The 39 Steps is adapted from the novel by John Buchan. Featuring over 100 characters played by four actors, this show follows the adventures of striking hero Richard Hannay – who has been incorrectly accused of murder – and his happenstances with villains, double agents and beautiful women.
Kevin Ou: The Sew-Out Show – Kinetic Abstraction
Visitors can pick out their favourite section from Ou’s 13 photographs and have them transformed into accessories, such as tote bags and bowties, by craftsmen from The General Company. Prices start from $50. Ou tells us more about the inspiration behind this trippy series.
I Know You Got Soul
Twelve American artists from the postinternet era, including Hugo McCloud, Kika Karadi and Travess Smalley, display their contemporary art pieces in a variety of new media and techniques.
Over 140 original maps dating back to the 16th century give viewers an idea of what Singapore and the South-East Asia region used to look like to explorers. Many of them are on loan from national institutions around the world and have never been shown here.
