Modern Face Changing and Magic Umbrella
The "Modern Face-changing and Magic Umbrella" is an eclectic performance that attempts to showcase the hybridized culture of Singapore. It incorporates the traditional Chinese arts of Sichuan "face-changing" and "magic umbrella" techniques with the martial tradition of Malay culture. It is performed to an equally eclectic song that fuses musical elements and instruments from Chinese, Malay and Indian traditions. This performance is conceptualized and designed by Master Choy Yien Chow of Choy Brother's Opera Troupe. The troupe performs extensively at private as well as public events such as the National Day Parade, and has been invited to various local as well as overseas cultural events.
