Vietnam, Water and Puppets

The water as a stage

“In Water Puppets Theatre, the stage is a perpetual moving water surface. It partially escapes from the control of puppets’ manipulator.

It’s not like smooth glass, which simply reflects the performance: it is like a waving sheet, where shapes and colours merge and multiply themselves, turning into something else.

Then, the liquid stage give rise to a new different image, more alive then the one performed on the water.”

Nguyen Huy Hong and Tran Trung Chinh, “Le Marionettes sur eau traditionelles du Vietnam”, 2002
