Flower Market at Yaohan Centre

Mrs. Krishnan’s Party

What: Mrs. Krishnan’s boarder, an overzealous wannabe DJ named James, has invited a few friends into the back room of the corner shop as a special surprise to celebrate Onam and the return home of her son. But when strangers turn up (the audience) and settle in, Mrs. K has no choice but to throw the party of her life. Over one joyous evening, Mrs. Krishnan’s Party magically transforms strangers into friends with a little Daal, a little dancing, and some serious laughs. Canadian premiere.

Loop, Lull

What: In this performance by Company 605, all is laid bare for the spectator: the audience witnessing a process without an endpoint, sharing the space and energy with the performers. This sense of transparency and community is essential to the meaning of Loop, Lull, which hides behind no narrative except bodies and movement in constant negotiation. It’s about people coping with change together, and all the beauty, vulnerability and risk that entails. Part of PuSh Festival.

Time: 7:30 to 9 pm

Science Fair

What: Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster’s joyful documentary can’t help but inspire hope. Nine science-obsessed teenagers are portrayed in the lead-up to the esteemed Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, where the winner stands to pocket a cool $75,000 and perhaps change the world. With entries from 78 countries – a Brazilian girl and a German boy are featured alongside the Americans – the fair is huge.
