Keeping our past alive

Last night, I watched a performance by a Chinese (Heng Hua) puppet troupe. The troupe is led by a 62 year old gentleman who is now searching for a successor. If not, the art form and troupe dies with him. The performance is under an initiative by the Asian Civilizations Museum (ACM), called Regenerating Communities. The ACM is situated beside the Singapore River, an important landmark in our history as it was used as a vital conduit for commerce and trade. Here are some of the pictures:
