Talk & Demonstration: Bringing Traditional Opera To The Fore by Dr Caroline Chia & Sin Ee Lye Heng Troupe (新怡梨兴潮剧团)

Be stunned by the rich colours and vitality of Chinese opera as you get the chance to learn the basics of this traditional art form from performers of Sin Ee Lye Heng through this talk and demonstration showcasing an array of character roles (male, female, painted face, clown), facial makeup, hairdo, and headgear. Lucky visitors will get to have their face painted too!

About the speaker / performer: Dr. Caroline Chia is a heritage enthusiast and avid researcher who has been researching on Chinese opera and puppet theatre for a decade. Besides conducting academic research on traditional Chinese theatre, she strongly believes that it is important to have close contact with the community. This involves sourcing more opportunities for opera performers and puppeteers to perform in order to continue and revitalise the trade.
