This week, explore the charismatic works from a series of Asian artists, share silence with like-minded individuals over a cup of tea, celebrate being single on Valentine’s Day and immerse yourself with a local play and comedy musical.
For an alternative Valentine’s Day experience, Fall in Hush invites you to sit in silence, and share space as a community of open hearts this Monday. Reflect in tea and express yourself in tea art, then share your reflections and expressions over the sweetness of a special dessert. For this Singles in Silence edition, expect a mystery random pairing segment that’ll help you to know more about yourself and another person too…and maybe fall in love with someone who’s comfortable with and understands your silence. But be quick to sign up as this event is limited to 20 persons only.
Fall in Hush: A Valentine’s Single Special is happening on 13 February 2017 at Ephiphyte SG. Tickets are priced at $68 per person, available via Peatix. For more details, check out the event page here.

Written by Selena Tan, Detention Katong is a musical comedy set in the fictional Geylang Girls Secondary School, about bad girls who do good and the challenges of being a teenager.

Talents such as Valerie Choo, Kimberly Chan, Melissa Gan, Natalie Yeap, Sharon Sum, Alyssa Lie, Munah Bagharib, and iNCH Chua will be singing songs by Elaine Chan (Dim Sum Dollies, Monkey Goes West & Sing Dollar), Sarah Cheng-De Winne (Brand New), Dave Tan (Electrico) and Benjamin Kheng (The Sam Willows).
Detention Katong is happening from 17 February to 5 March 2017 at the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Tickets are priced from $35, available via SISTIC. For more details, check out the official website here.
