tour details

String puppetry is one of Myanmar’s most venerated traditions, and for good reason. Your puppet experience will open you up to a world of skill and delight. String puppetry has a long history in Myanmar, and many locals have seen shows since childhood. Some of the local favourites are the dance of the prince playing with a cane ball, the acrobatic dance of the prince playing a tub with legs while lying on his back, and a garland dance. The art of string puppetry is a combination of theatre, storytelling, woodwork, painting, and costume-making, bringing many disciplines together into one engaging presentation.
