The Peranakan Museum’s latest exhibition – Nyonya Needlework: Embroidery and Beadwork in the Peranakan World – celebrates the art of Nyonya needlework and demonstrates how the Peranakans created new needlework styles and techniques while striking a balance between innovation and working within traditions in this increasingly cosmopolitan world in which they lived.
Showcasing close to 200 intricately embroidered and beaded artworks, with nearly half of them from Singapore’s national collection, the Nyonya Needlework exhibition also includes objects from private lenders and international museums, such as the Rijksmuseum and the National Museum of World Cultures in the Netherlands.
These fine objects, ranging from some of the earliest dated embroidered and beaded pieces to celebratory items such as wedding slippers, bed and wall ornaments, and personal accessories such as belts, purses and handkerchiefs, not only represent millions of hours of painstaking handstiches, but also tell stories of Peranakan celebrations and daily lives.
Come join us to discover the ingenuity and skill embedded in the art, and the innovations inspired by the dynamic, multicultural environment of the region.

Presented and curated by the good folks from Singapore-based state of the art sound system label Rebel Decibel and local radio station Lush 99.5, ZoukOut Singapore 2016 is set to bring back local-DJ-only dedicated space, the Kaleidoscope Stage on the second day of the outdoor music festival (10 December). Intended as a stage to showcase and introduce local DJ talents to electronic music lovers, the line-up this year is power-packed with a multitude of house and techno honchos including the likes of Haan, Zig Zach and DuriO.
KALEIDOSCOPE STAGE ACTS:
CHERRY CHAN (DEBUT)
Armed with a bagful of tricks that are programmed to keep the toes happy, Cherry Chan is known for her eclectic sets that usually involves glitchy beats and hard-hitting drum&bass. A former participant of the Red Bull Music Academy, she has played alongside international acts including Four Tet, Flying Lotus and Moderat and has helmed the decks at underground club Low End Theory (Los Angeles, USA) and at DJ legend Giles’ Peterson’s Worldwide Festival (Sete, France).
Returning for a another spin after last year’s ZoukOut debut with all-girl tribe ATTAGIRL!, DuriO is an alumni of FFF Girl DJ Bootcamp in 2012. An experimentalist who loves to explore various combinations of genres ranging from Indie-Dance to Bass House, Durio is once again set to take festival-goers through a journey of bass-laced good vibes and bangers.
No stranger to the Techno music circuit, Haan has established himself as the techno underdog of Singapore with over a decade behind the decks and his unique blend of dark yet melodic sound. A local DJ advocate and one of the players behind collective Tropiclab, he has introduced techno nights across various locations in local shores and has also played next to club legends including Answer Code Request, Oxia and Surgeon. Debuting at ZoukOut 2016, one can expect to be flanked with nonstop groove of transcendent house and techno.
One of the newer faces enlisted into local music collective and label, Syndicate, Intriguant quickly escalated the ranks in the realm of techno with the release of his debut EP, Eclipse in 2014 that has gained critical acclaim in countries including Israel, Slovakia and USA. Melding a textural sound that spans across electronic, hip hop, soul and beats, those with a love for syncopated beats can look forward to a mesmerizing overture beyond spiritual.
Ever ready with his trusty saxophone and years of experience as a trained DJ, Kaye has earned himself the reputation of being one of the most versatile and dynamic DJs in Singapore. Welding a knack for improvising, a love to incorporate performance elements and various music technologies during sets, Kaye will be gearing up the dancefloor with pulses of jazz and soul laden funk and house.
SENG WEI (DEBUT)
A seasoned face in the local DJ scene, Seng Wei prides himself as an ever-evolving music producer who enjoys blurring the boundaries of dance genres by infusing diverse sounds ranging from jazz, classical, rock and electro. Debuting this year at ZoukOut 2016, Seng Wei will be dishing out fresh cuts of nu-disco, funk and house that will have all festival-goers tapping and grooving throughout.
ZIG ZACH (DEBUT)
A former Muay Thai fighter who has participated in The Contender Asia, Zig Zach has since hung up his boxing gloves and has punched his way through to become one of the key players in the underground music scene. Adaptable to all sorts of occasions and festivals without compromising on his signature, expect to be surged with a dizzying blend of deep-house and nu-disco peppered with slices of techno on the blazed up shore.

The National Museum of Singapore’s Glass Rotunda is home to two new permanent art installations that will kick-start visitors’ experience to the Singapore History Gallery.
The first work is a digital art installation inspired by the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings, titled Story of a Forest. Visitors will experience the treasured collection of the National Museum brought to life through a spectacular, larger-than-life digital presentation, and be transported to 20th century Malaya as viewed through the eyes of the artists of that time and reimagined today by interdisciplinary Japanese art collective teamLab.
At the end of their multimedia journey, visitors will view a photography exhibit titled Singapore, Very Old Tree by Singaporean artist Robert Zhao that explores the discourse of nature through 17 images of trees around Singapore, before they continue to explore the Singapore History Gallery.

Buds Theatres IN-‐HOUSE SERIES hosted at The Playtent, aims to make theatre accessible to all. By charging affordable prices and hosting at our own venue, we are able to share new works, expose new talents and create new audiences interested in theatre for change. The idea of the work proposed, is to select plays that highlight societal issues, that can be performed and discussed post show informally, allowing our audiences to engage and respond directly.
Questions posed post performance aid the dialogue and help audiences to see the value of theatre as a tool for change. The purpose of the discourse is firstly to raise awareness of the issues addressed and secondly to foster a sense of responsibility for our society. Using drama as a vehicle for change, we look to empower and invest in our audiences, to alter mindsets and create an empathetic community voice.

We may not get white Christmases in Singapore, but ILLUMI RUN is upping its ante with more ways to add some festive colour to the island’s year-end calendar and let it glow, let it glow, let it glow. Hitting Sentosa’s Palawan Green on 17 December, the Party on the Run will feature an inflatable glow slide for the first time – making it the country’s first night run with a slide.
Set to be the key feature of the ILLUMI RUN village, the 30-metre long ILLUMI Glow Slide will kick the evening off on a thrilling note, soaking participants with water even before the run begins. By the end of the night though, the water will be swapped out for ILLUMI Glow Water, ensuring not one runner gets through the night spot-free and paving the way for a stunning neon spectacle under the stars.
Held for the first time at the beach, ILLUMI RUN will also showcase a brand new ‘Neon Paradise’ route in line with its new destination, complete with paradise-themed glow zones that will douse participants in ILLUMI Glow Water as they run and dance along to fresh beats through the night.
Flagging off at 7.30pm, the run will begin with a bubbly treat for participants at its first glow zone, Cosmic-Land, which will feature neon bubbles and psychedelic rainbow light displays. Those with a sweet tooth can then look forward to Candy Pop, a candy-lover’s dream showcasing life-sized candy and rainbow sprinkles, and of course, ILLUMINATORs ready to shoot participants with Glow Water.
Meanwhile, life’s a beach at A Beach Life, a sandy paradise featuring surfboards, glow floats and balls, while it’s flower power at Flower Dreams, a glow zone that will treat runners to a one-of-a-kind neon rain shower as they dance across a colourful field of flowers. The run will culminate in a Laser Rainforest, showcasing 3D light and neon paint displays and the hottest fist-pumping tracks.
The fun continues beyond the run, with the ILLUMI Glow Slide at the race village cooling participants after their run with even more ILLUMI Glow Water. Participants can also dance through the night at a massive party on Palawan Beach, featuring top Asian DJs such as DJ TiNC, Rave Republic, and Taiwanese DJ Cookie, the No.1 Female DJ listed by the Taipei Times. Spinning for a crowd that’s all decked out in neon colours, the DJs’ sets will be accompanied by vibrant pyrotechnic displays, ending the night on a luminescent high.
Registration for ILLUMI RUN has been extended to 13 December for online sign-ups and 17 December for walk-in sign ups, so those looking to take an exhilarating plunge into good times on the sand an now register up till race day. For more information and to register, please visit Illumi Run 2016.
