Phase 2 is finally here, but social distancing should continue (be responsible!). It’ll be easy, ’cause this week, experience Singapore’s first virtual live interactive theatre production, and celebrate Pink Dot 2020 from home. Jam out to Revision Music’s live stream party or create art with Room To Imagine.
Murder At Mandai Camp: A Supernatural Murder Mystery
Catch Murder At Mandai Camp, Singapore’s first live interactive and immersive theatre experience to be presented on Zoom. Running for three nights only, the production by local theatre company Sight Line Entertainment is written and directed by local acclaimed playwright Chong Tze Chien. Join fellow audience-participants in uncovering the truth behind a gruesome murder of a young recruit and ultimately, apprehending the suspect. Expect to receive evidence on your phones and a collective vote to bring the offender to justice.
Even better? Add cocktails from laut when you get tickets on SISTIC for a better experience at home – the aptly chosen Grass and Dragonfruit are available on at a special price of S$38 per 250ml bottle (usually S$48) for you to enjoy alongside the production.
Murder At Mandai Camp runs from 26 – 28 June, at 10pm. Tickets are priced at S$15, with the option of supporting the production from S$20, S$30, and S$50. Buy your tickets here.
Light Up From Home – Pink Dot 2020
Pink Dot might not be taking place at Hong Lim Park this year, but Singapore’s annual LGBTQ+ celebration is going digital. With the theme Love Lives Here, this year’s event is a show of support to the queer community, many whom have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. On June 27, show up for an exciting livestream to celebrate love. Expect performances from the likes of Joanna Dong and Charlie Lim, along with a slew of queer short films. Catch a special Pink Dot episode of “Nobody Asked” by Preetipls. And Light Up from home by decorating your house with pink lights.
Pink Dot 12: Love Lives Here streams on 27 June, 8pm – 9.30pm here.
