Cinemaestro x Bioskopan – Red Dragonflies 

This Friday, Rumah Sanur is hosting a film screening featuring Singaporean film Red Dragonflies, which tells the story of three friends exploring an abandoned railway track that runs through a dense forest, before an unforeseen incident brings an abrupt end to their little adventure. The 2010 film won a special jury prize at the Jeonju International Film Festival that same year, and we think this one might be interesting for indie movie buffs out there. 

Friday, March 6 at Rumah Sanur Creative Hub from 7pm to 9pm. IDR 25k per person. Box office opens one hour before the screening schedule. Register for the event here.


Jamu Workshop 

Fresh turmeric, Balinese ginger, Tamarind and other traditional ingredients make up jamu (pronounced ja-moo), a uniquely Indonesian traditional herbal drink that many people still consume in the country. It’s believed to be the cure to all sorts of ailments, from masuk angin (common cold) to impotence. 

Those of you who are curious about how to make these drinks, a workshop over at Canggu this weekend might be the entry course to get you started on your own jamu routine. While organizers have labeled jamu as “elixir of life” on their event description, we’ll keep it simpler by informing you that it’s been known to work for a lot of people and definitely worth learning about. 

Saturday, March 7 at Xich Lo Canggu from 9am to 11am. IDR 100k per person. Register via email or contact +6287762388008. 


Botanica x Women’s March Bali Presents Women’s Day 

Did you know that Bali has got its own Women’s March slated for April? Yes, if you want to support women’s rights and meet incredible activists and fellow residents of the island, mark your calendars for April 5. In the meantime, event organizers are hosting a garage sale to support the upcoming march this Saturday, alongside screening of four short films under the “See Me, Hear Me” program over at Botanica Bali in Seminyak. In addition, there will also be an open discussion featuring women speakers on opening dialogue about women’s issues. Not to forget, selected cocktails, wines, beer and snacks will be half off between 4pm and 7pm! 

Saturday, March 7 at Botanica Bali from 5pm onwards. Free entry. 


Swim Into Saturdays with Above & Beyond 

If you’re thinking of partying it up this weekend, OMNIA Bali is hosting Above & Beyond; bringing back their uplifting and emotional sounds on the cliffs of Uluwatu as a follow-up to their sold-out performances back in 2018 and 2019. 

For all of you electronic dance music enthusiasts, Above & Beyond’s upcoming event in OMNIA is something you might not want to miss, seeing as how a number of international concerts are being canceled or postponed amid the global coronavirus concerns (including the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida, where Above & Beyond was scheduled to perform). After all, we’ve only heard good things about the English group’s live performances! 

Saturday, March 7 at OMNIA Bali. The event is strictly 21+. Reservations via or WhatsApp +6281238569307. Pre-sale tickets start from IDR250k (US$17.65), available for purchase here.


Dance Performances at Blanco Renaissance Museum

Artists from Unity Space are coming to the Blanco Renaissance Museum this weekend to perform alongside live acoustic and electronic music acts. Organizers say performances will be ones featuring ‘gliding space,’ wherein the dancer becomes one with the space through physical and spiritual techniques. It’s very Ubudian, alright, and if it so happens that you are on the highlands this weekend and looking for an interesting event to take part in, this one might do the trick for ya. 

Saturday, March 7 at Blanco Renaissance Museum from 6pm onwards. Presale tickets are IDR150k. For more information, check out their Facebook event page.
