Types of Puppetry
The troupe handles 2 different types of puppets, which is String Puppets (Jia Li Xi) and Hand Puppets (Pu Dai Xi) in 2 different languages, which are Hokkien & Heng Hwa.
The performances are usually tucked away in one secluded corner of a detached house or temple, far from the buzzing city. Traditional puppetry is a fascinating art form, for the puppets are playing not for human eyes, but for the Taoist deities which are usually held to commemorate the birthday of various gods (神诞）Save
