Last minute change to my b/w challenge entry. Hope this works better as the earlier one did not seem to elicit much excitement, I think it was rather muted.
This was shot last night Sep 28 at a getai (literally "song stage"), which is a community performance on a makeshift stage in residential neighbourhoods.
Getai is marked by exceptionally glamorous - and sometimes outrageous - costumes of the female singers.
It is especially popular during the Chinese 7th month "Festival of the hungry ghosts" when the gates of hell are supposed to be open and temples organize such events to entertain the spirits.
But the 7th month is over and getai continues to be held for various other occasions. Last night's show seems to have been organised by the local residents' committee rather than by a temple group.
