Forgotten Heritage, Uncovering Singapore’s Traditional Chinese Puppets

by Chia, Caroline Chia / Yeo, Jesvin

  • (0)

This is the first book to document the diversity of Singapore’s traditional Chinese theatre. The emphasis is on “Forgotten Heritage” as this important theatrical practice has existed for over a century but remains little known to many Singaporeans.

This heritage includes both the tangible—puppets, playscripts and related paraphernalia, and intangible—knowledge and skills of puppeteers and musicians, which are fading away. This book not only serves as a storehouse of the puppet types belonging to the various regional (dialect) groups, its colourful and attractive design aims to attract more readers, especially the younger generation who may have never seen or experienced this rich tradition.
