Allow the melodic tunes of the clarinet or heart-thumping beats of Singapore's youngest rapper entertain you this weekend

1/4Happiness Film Festival

What As Singapore claims the 34th spot in the world and second in the Asian region in the World Happiness Index this year, delve deeper into what fuels the well-being of fellow Singaporeans at the Happiness Film Festival, which is the first festival of its kind, anchored in the spirit of bliss and contentment. With films such as the documentary A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Valasquez Story opening the festival on March 20—which very aptly happens to be the UN's International Day of Happiness—find yourself engaging in compelling discussions during post-screenings sessions of The Work, a dark yet powerful film following the narratives of four convicts in Folsom Prison, and Survival Family, a Japanese comedy-drama of a family going trying times in an apocalyptic city, amongst many others.

3/4Faust/Us by Nine Years Theatre

What Adapted from German playwright Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's mid-century play Faust, Singapore's Mandarin Theatre company Nine Years Theatre puts a contemporary spin on this classic that follows the narrative of a brilliant academic and her journey with desire and ambition. The production is high-anticipated as the company's next-generation director, Cherilyn Woo, helms the performance's creative direction and re-imagines the protagonist to be a female one instead of a male lead, which deviates from the original script written by Goethe. Taking over the spotlight at the Drama Centre's Black Box, audiences can look forward to a thrilling performance of this classic tale.
