The getai is a live stage performance held each year during the Hungry Ghost Festival in Singapore and Malaysia. It forms an integral part of the month-long festival: local Chinese would burn incense paper to appease the spirits and performances would be held at various neighborhoods. In the past, performances were Chinese opera or puppet shows but have since evolved into a kitschy and gaudy combination of songs, dance and stand-up comedy.

In Onstage Offstage, Lee questions the longevity of these performances, how long would it be before it becomes just that – a memory ?
