SINGAPORE — The Peranakan Museum will close Armenian Street on tomorrow night (March 11) and Saturday night to host its first Armenian Street Party. Members of the public can look forward to a mix of traditional Peranakan and contemporary performances.

At the party, there will be live music, traditional Peranakan wayang, as well as dance performances. The performances will take place at five performance spaces, stretching from the Peranakan Museum, Armenian Street, to the Singapore Management University.

One highlight at the party is an urban garden which will be created in the alley between The Substation and the museum. It will be transformed into a garden complete with festoon lighting, swings and park benches.

The Peranakan Museum says it came up with the idea in November 2015, to complement an on-going exhibition.

“The Armenian Street Party was conceived with profiling the Peranakan Museum as a forethought, making the Museum more relevant to the Singaporean public,” said Bernard Tan, Senior Assistant Director for Audience at Peranakan Museum. “The inaugural Street Party is held in conjunction with the museum’s special exhibition, Great Peranakan: Fifty Remarkable Lives, drawing a lifestyle parallel to how Peranakans would host parties of grandiose for their guests in the past.

“The community-focused Street Party emulates a festival-like atmosphere to reclaim the street for the people, aligned with Bras Basah-Bugis (BBB) precinct’s vision to create a vibrant lifestyle destination for locals and visitors alike.” CHANNEL NEWSASIA
