Ritual is Theatre, Theatre is Ritual: Tang-ki: Chinese Spirit Medium Worship

---

Margaret Chan

An unusual and readable account of the manifestations of 5,000 year old Chinese popular religion as it is practiced itself in modern Singapore. The author, an experienced actress, in looking at spirit medium worship through the prism of theatre makes a case for a 'liberated' anthropology based on the dynamic processes of social actions rather than more static methods of interpreting peoples and culture. In doing so she gains singular  insights into Singapore life today. 184 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
