NUANSA 2019 Lukisan Jati: “There’s more to Indonesia than just that, there’s more to her than just that”

It’s a production that relates close to the heart – NUANSA’s musical, Lukisan Jati, sheds light on the struggles two Indonesian scholars face in developing their artistic pursuits abroad. Following the protagonists’ journey of self-discovery, Lukisan Jati aims to share how rewarding it would be to overcome your personal struggles to follow your dreams. We spoke to the team behind the musical to tell us more about the plot that is set in two different centuries, and how they drew inspiration from the iconic Boschbrand painting. 1. What sparked the interest to follow the story of an accomplished painter, Raden…

If rojak could sing, it’ll only sing local music

It’s absolutely mind-boggling how much local music has transcended over the years that it’s difficult to form opinions surrounding it since any conclusion gathered becomes obsolete quickly. I’ve been a fan for 15 years now, but *pfft*, it’s still not enough to scratch the surface of our music. So anyway, danamic. kick-jolted me from my slumber, hypnic jerk-style – requesting a write-up out of the Spotify playlist they created called ‘Local Delights’ (which sounds like a canteen tuckshop from your primary school days). However, a confession before I get into the meat of the article though: danamic. didn’t really specify…

Reviewing the reviews: Is food at Old Airport Road Food Centre as good as they say?

Old Airport Road Food Centre was built in 1972 to resettle street hawkers left evicted from Kallang Airport’s closure earlier in 1955. Since its opening in 1973, the food junction has received praise after praise for both the variety and quality of foodstuff available. Despite its longstanding heritage, not many Singaporeans are familiar with the myriad of food it offers. We decided to find out if their food was grossly overrated by the public. Read on for our verdict of 10 key dishes in the Old Airport Road Food Centre. Hock Lam Street Popular Beef Kway Teow (#01-22) One of…

Ultra Singapore 2019: Marred by the Lack of World Class Acts, Not by the Change in Venue or Controversies

In the weeks leading up to Ultra Singapore 2019, the festival had been torn to shreds because of speculations of legal issues, the withdrawal of headliner Martin Garrix, and the change in location. A day before Ultra Singapore 2019 was set to take place, it was reported that a winding-up application for Ultra Singapore Pte Ltd had been filed. Led by serial entrepreneurs Alex Chew and Raj Datwani, the famous dance music festival held in Singapore was faced with at least eight lawsuits for sums ranging from $3,745 to $74,686. To add fuel to the fire, it was also announced…

Supporting The Arts Scene In Local Universities: Arunika and Sangharsa

While the Singaporean arts scene may not be as conspicuous compared to other countries, it has seen significant growth in the range and quality of cultural offerings. To show support for the growing arts scene in Singapore, DANAMIC supported two productions by local universities this year – ICN: Arunika by NTU and GAYA: Sangharsa (The Struggle) by SMU. ICN: Arunika Organised by Pelajar Indonesia NTU (PINTU), the Indonesian Students of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) presented Arunika, a musical that pulled the audience into the dark past of slavery and cruelty that plagued the city during the early nineteenth century. Arunika…

Mother’s Day Special: What If My Mum Was An Avenger

The Avengers are truly extraordinary heroes, battling all manner of monsters and aliens in order to keep Earth safe. The same could be said for our mothers; though no aliens or monsters are slain, they do battle with the demons of fatigue and stress constantly to make sure our lives are unburdened. Indeed, we never truly appreciate the work that our mothers put in until we stop to think about it. They work behind the scenes to ensure everything in our lives goes smoothly and are there immediately for us when we hit a bump on our life journey. Here…

To Grab or to Club: An Analysis on GrabClub’s Commute Plans

Subscriptions are all the rage now, and Grab is clearly jumping on the bandwagon. In early January this year, Grab added two new subscription plans in the Grab app, after the first pilot of the monthly food and transport subscription plans in December 2018. For paying a fixed amount every month, subscribers will enjoy a lower upfront price for Grab services like Grab rides, GrabFood, or both. This also means paying nominal fees for guaranteed discounts – an extremely attractive perk, if you have been as addicted to the convenience of private-hire car services as we are. In this article,…
