DARK MATTER THEATRICS presents A Twisted Kingdom, an original play by Christopher Fok. A Twisted Kingdom follows the journey of The Fool who searches for a kidnapped prince, and in doing so dredges up memories of his own, long suppressed and forgotten.
A combination of the poetic, the fantastical and the dangerous, this play is an unrelenting examination of childhood trauma, and how facing one's personal demons can lead to a simple cathartic truth.
Directed by Marcia Vanderstraaten and starring Lian Sutton in his first solo performance, A Twisted Kingdom runs from November 12 to 14 at the Substation Theatre.
The soundtrack is composed and produced by Isa Ong of Pleasantry and sub:shamen. Weish sings on it as well.
Date: 12 - 14 November 2015
Venue: The Substation (45 Armenian Street)
Time: 8pm daily, with an additional 3pm show on 14 November
Tickets: $28 from http://www.eventbrite.sg

The second instalment of Other Sounds' brand new three-part series of shows titled 'Sleepwalker' is taking place on 11 October, 4 November, and 4 December.
Perfume Genius, aka Mike Hadreas, is a singer-songwriter of rare frankness, creating songs that, while achingly emotional, offered empathy and hope, rather than any judgment or handwringing. Sparse, gorgeous and with Hadreas’ quavering vocals often only accompanied by piano, they were uncommonly beautiful tales of a life lived on the dark side – scarred, brutalised, yet ultimately, slowly but surely reclaimed.
His latest release, "Too Bright", is something else altogether. Less self-conscious, and less concerned with storytelling and easily-digested melodies, it is a brave, bold, unpredictably quixotic exploration of what Hadreas calls “an underlying rage that has slowly been growing since ten and has just begun to bubble up”
Sleepwalker: PERFUME GENIUS (USA) live in Singapore
Date: Friday, 4 December 2015
Time: 7pm (doors open)
Venue: TAB (442 Orchard Road)
Tickets: $55 pre-sale / $65 door / $100 series bundle available at http://perfumegenius.peatix.

Regarded as the Peter Dinklage of the Singapore music scene, The Little Giant (Hilary Yeo) brings a refreshing new sound to the table of local folk-pop music. Infamously known for her ability to seamlessly blend light-hearted, happy tunes with head-turning, macabre lyrics, her newly compiled four track EP “Let’s just be Honest” will leave you singing along and later questioning your own sense of moral priority for doing so in the first place.
Performing under the moniker The Little Giant, Hilary first began dipping her toes in the wonders of music when she picked up the ukulele at the age of 18, she has since gone on to write a trove of original songs on both the ukulele as well as the guitar.
The EP launch will be held at BluJaz Cafe with special guests opening acts by The Madhatter Project and Anise as support acts.
Date: Friday, 4 September 2015
Venue: BluJaz Cafe (3rd Floor), 11 Bali Lane
Tickets: $15 advanced tickets available at : thelittlegiantEP.peatix.co
$20 tickets at the door (subject to availability)
$30 ticket + EP at the door (subject to availability)
Physical EP: $14
