After seven weeks of staying at home, lift your spirits this week with our selection of events on the web. Laugh out loud with Pangdemonium’s Chinglish or play a game of Late Night Bingo. If the circuit breaker blues are getting you down now, do something new – make your own cocktails or wind down with a wellness livestream.
Practice Mindfulness with Project Happiness
Organised by Singapore Arts Museum, Project Happiness is a new weekly wellness livestream hosted by founder of The Breath Movement, Cheryl Tan. Hoping to empower individuals to enhance their well-being, these sessions are sure to give you ample time to relax and reflect on the happenings in one’s life. Each session also draws inspiration from different works in the museum, offering different experiences each week. Take this chance to unwind and reconnect with your inner self amid these uncertain times.
Project Happiness streams every Wednesday at 8pm on the SAM Facebook page.
Watch Chinglish by Pangdemonium
For fun and engagement in your screen time, catch Chinglish by Pangdemonium, the Singapore theatre company’s thrilling bilingual comedy. Written by Tony-award winning David Henry Hwang, Chinglish follows an American businessman on his trip to China, where he realises that much more than language gets lost in translation. Performed in both Chinese and English, this is sure to get you laughing through wordplay and jokes. The play’s three-week run in 2015 sold out, so this is your one chance to catch the whole play online complete with subtitles.
Watch Chinglish by Pangdemonium from now till May 21 here.
Make Your Own Cocktails with SGCF@HOME
