Bangsawan: A type of traditional Malay opera or theatre performed by a troupe. The performance encompasses music, dance and drama. Although Bangsawan is common to Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei and is closely linked to Malay culture, its origins can be traced back to popular Indian theatre. The stories are sourced from Arabian romances, Islamic literature, Malay history and even Western tales, including Shakespeare. Bangsawan used to be a staple of the community, but its popularity has steadily declined over the years and has been overtaken by contemporary and modern theatre. http://www.nlb.gov.sg/biblioasia/2020/02/21/the-theatres-of-bangsawan/ 2. Geylang: A location in the east of Singapore that is popular and sometimes synonymous with the Malay community. 3. Jatuh macam nangka busuk: A Malay saying that is used to describe someone who has had a great fall that is akin to a rotten fruit falling from a tree. The fall is usually inelegant, dramatic, pathetic and comical for the onlookers. #sgcultureanywhere #StayHomeforSG #createtoconnect #createtoinspire #rumahsolidarityproject During the pandemic, RUMAH initiated a digital project called Rumah’s Solidarity Project, to introduce Singapore Malay theatre works to a new and wider audience.
