About the Shot
Singapore - Getais are usually staged during the Hungry Ghost Festival. Traditionally, the chinese believe that the gates of hell open for the month and spirits are allowed to wander in our realm. These "Getais" are performances (usually outdoors) to entertain both the living and the dead. These performances mostly comprise of a huge deal of tacky costumes coupled with song and dance and are really loud affairs.
