What is Village Singapura®?
Village Singapura ® creates unforgettable experiences through traditions and culture. Through our travels, we explored different cultures around the world but ended up discovering more about ourselves. We found this meaningful but inaccessible. Hence, we aspire to convey the same impact through the accessible, fun experiences that we create. Through these experiences, people enjoy fun bonding together while exploring different cultures and discovering more about themselves.

My colleagues are worried about acting!
We definitely recommend trying out the Drama-Mama session as we have seen many participants who were normally reluctant ,and shy overcome their barriers and have tremendous fun. In our experience, Drama-Mama has not failed to create laughter, joy and bonding.
Will everyone have to act?
Everyone will need to have a part and there will be many roles for the acting as e.g. a group of 5 to 10 japanese soldiers, passers-bys, Lions, Sang Nila Utama’s 4 wives, Raffles’s sepoy soldiers, hawkers selling paper cutting, someone playing the role of the wind.
Other than acting, they can assign individuals to plan and even be a narrator.
Can we remove the acting part?
Our alternative program “Running Man” does not involve any acting segment and that might be more suitable for you.
