Singaporean of the Day: The Puppet Master

Hi friends, Frankie has just been featured in the ‘Singaporean of the Day’ project. He is interviewee number 50; just in time for our SG50 celebrations! Here is a short write-up on this:

Singaporean of the Day is a project created by a group of friends, through conversations with people from all corners of Singapore. We talked to people on the streets, in the malls, at coffee shops, schools, void decks and even trains, to catch a glimpse of their dreams and hopes for this little island we call home.

Mascots and Puppets Specialists presented one performance of ‘Streets of Singapore’ at the Puppet and Actor Theatre Stage. The programme was ticketed and it was almost a full house. Our performance was warmly-received, with many audience members coming to the stage after the performance to see the puppets up-close and to take photos with them. Some audience members were especially intrigued by our Chinese-themed puppets and song, as well as the mechanisms involved in our puppet construction. Our team also had a great time interacting with the other artists at the Festival.

Many thanks for Festival Director Jaroslaw Antoniuk for the invitation, and to the National Arts Council and the Lee Foundation Singapore for making this trip possible!
