St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Singapore 2013

St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Singapore 2013

It’s the time of the year when hipsters congregate to party to independent music most people haven’t heard of. Billed as Australia’s, New Zealand’s and Singapore’s most well regarded boutique music festival, the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival began in 2006 at a tight alley somewhere in Melbourne, and then hipsters went on to take over...
Burn The Floor

Burn The Floor

Explosive. If Burn the Floor could be described with one word, that word would be explosive. The Marina Bay Sands Theatre was set ablaze when 24 of the world’s most distinguished international ballroom dancers took the stage. To say that they blew audiences away would be a gross understatement. The cast last performed in Singapore...

Pantang

When you think of a lawyer, what comes to mind? The classy high-flying lawyer in an immaculate thousand-dollar suit with a briefcase containing a multi-million dollar contract? (Think Harvey Specter in Suits. If you haven’t watched it, put the laptop down and do so immediately. I’ll wait.) Contrary to popular belief, being a lawyer is...

Swan Lake

Swan Lake

There is magic in the story of ill-fated lovers, set to the music of Tchaikovsky and performed in dance. The Singapore Dance Theatre opened their 2012 performance season with Swan Lake. This is the 3rd time they are staging this production, having previously done so in 2007 and 2009. This was my first local ballet,...
Something Wicked This Way Comes

Something Wicked This Way Comes

My second Law Annual post on musicals and theatre! If you’ve never seen one of these adverts around Singapore, you must be living under a rock (or in the Angsana that’s open 24/7). Wicked is a Broadway musical that is based on Gregory Maguire’s novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of...
Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening, the musical, is finally in town!   If you have a few hours to spare, and if you feel like putting aside your books from Law Land for a change, why not get in touch with your arty-farty subconscious by watching a play?  Spring Awakening isn’t really your typical kind of musical. If...
