Streets Made for Talking - S1E3: What's In The Middle?

15 Aug 2022 10:00pm

What was Middle Road really the middle of? Radio DJ Catherine Robert explores her Eurasian roots, and other communities of Bras Basah and Bugis that congregated and expanded around the iconic road.

Streets Made for Talking

About the show:

In the second season of Streets Made For Talking, we’re hitting the iconic, historical district of Telok Ayer. The place where everyone and their grandfathers probably passed through, since this was the original bayfront and arrival point of anyone arriving in Singapore. 

Our team of plucky shots – a visual artist, two theatre performers and a musician – are led by their curiosity and take us on a journey of discovery, through clues hidden within these streets. 

How did a workaholic government official inspire the creation of the popiah? Is Telok Ayer just a Chinese district and what’s with the new wave of Korean restaurants? And why does Club Street have no clubs – or so we think?
