Abstract: In recent decades, the traditional arts scene in Singapore has been trailing behind the more well-received contemporary arts industry. But with a $23 million kitty and a five-year Traditional Arts Plan proposed by the National Arts Council, the languishing state of the industry looks set to change. Curtain Call explores the challenges that today's traditional artists battle on a daily basis, from making a living to finding a successor to hand over the ropes to. In the face of these challenges, many have taken to modernise their art forms, to the dismay of traditional arts purists. From Perenakan raps to Heng Hwa string puppetry, Curtain Call takes a closer look at Singapore's traditional arts.
