22 June - 18 August
Catch Chinatown Crossings by Drama Box this June. Chinatown Crossings is a unique promenade theatre experience written by local award winning playwright Jean Tay and directed by Koh Hui Ling, Associate Artistic Director of Drama Box
It is an effort to showcase and highlight the multiculturalism of Singapore’s Chinatown and bring to light the hidden gems in this precinct – the present, the past, and how the communities who made Chinatown their homes went about their lives It traces the story of Kunalan, an Indian man who grew up in Chinatown during the 1960s and 1970s, recounting his friendship with his Cantonese landlady’s feisty daughter, and his relationship with Fong Cheh, a ma jie who became a surrogate mother to him during his growing up years
Be led into the nooks and crannies of this neighbourhood to experience the insides of a shophouse; relive the echoes of living in old Singapore through a soundscape; and discover the many lost and forgotten practices of Chinatown’s vibrant community.
