New puppet show for a glimpse of Vietnamese culture
Vietnam Puppet Theater will introduce a new show to tourists with the name “Trang” (The Moon). This will also flaunt the premiere of a unique puppet show acted on a large stage.
The moon symbol has winded through many literature and music pieces of Vietnamese authors. In the eerie night, everything is covered with a thin coat of light while people enjoy the soothing halo. By borrowing the intimate image and combining contemporary puppetry with traditional music, the Vietnam Puppet Theater board hopes to bring more than just an entertainment show.
The story does not root from any single tale. Instead it is more of a moving slideshow of Vietnam’s national identity. With the moon as a leading thread, the puppet show takes you from the Northern idyllic paddy fields, the Central lotus dance, to the Southern river life.
Various ethnic groups’ cultural characteristics overflow during the showtime, promising a fun yet meaningful experience for even international visitors.
The performance features different genres of puppetry, water, land, and human actions. A smallest-detailed dedication to colors and shapes can grant the new “moon” a great future among other amusements.
