Vietnamese water pupptery Hanoi
Today I did a citywalk and visited the Vietnamese water pupptery in Hanoi. A one hour show of music and Vietnamese water puppetry. You can visit the show for 60.000 till 100.000 VMD ($3 – $5).
Traditional content of water puppet performance like daily life of Vietnamese farmers (cultivating, tending buffalo, catching fishes…), communal entertainment (swimming contest, dragon dancing…), or historical legends (Le Loi returns precious sword…), with modest performance way have appealed audiences for centuries. However, the artists of Thang Long Water Puppet Theater want to renew the old puppet shows with effect of light, music and combination between people and puppets.
