Street Wayang in Singapore

What we have taken for granted for decades is now slowly fading away. Before that happens, I hope to compile a list of these street wayangs, be there full operas or puppet shows. They form a strong part of the Chinese Heritage in Singapore.

Here I hope to document the name of the street wayang, the contacts and the history. Any information is welcomed.

You can share with us more about this troupe? We hope to document the street wayangs before they vanish from this earth. (^^)

Talking about Kim Eng, I was fortunate to snap alot of photographs on them. I think they're pretty good when compared to other street wayang troupes locally, in terms of professinalism and troupe strength.
