It seems like Pangdemonium have another gem on their hands with their adaptation of the award-winning rock musical RENT. Directed by Tracie Pang, the narrative follows the lives of a group of 20-somethings who face a bleak future filled with fear and uncertainty – there’s plenty of social injustice and poverty. HIV/AIDS is also on the rise. Basically, it’s a shitty world they’re living in, but beyond despair and negativity, there are still the powerful messages of hope, humanity, friendship and love.

Time: Tuesday – Saturday, 7.20pm; Saturday and Sunday, 2.30pm; Sunday, 7.30pm

Artist & Empire: Countering Colonial Legacies
Through the years, the British Empire has been represented through many art forms. Well, no surprise there. It was after all one of the most powerful empires the world has ever seen. Interestingly though, the National Gallery has decided to gather art pieces that offer a contemporary perspective on the empire, and visitors can expect plenty of viewpoints from Southeast Asia as well, especially the colonial relationship that Singapore had with our former masters. Look forward to artwork from the 16th century all the way to the present day, with close to 200 works from international and regional collections.
Date: 6 October 2016 – 26 March
Time: 10am – 7pm daily; Friday and Saturday, 10am – 10pm
Venue: National Gallery
Admission: Free (Singaporeans); $20 (standard)
