Sneaking into the Backstage

Yesterday you saw how the puppets are manipulated by 2 humans. Well, here's a backstage peek. These two ladies are the ones in charge. They are also the one telling the stories.

The rest of the crew are playing the musical instruments that makes all the 'tong tong chiang' sounds. You can also see some other characters.



If you wonder if anyone's watching? There is! Young and old, standing, sitting, squating, eating, etc...

I love this series on the traditional Chinese puppet show. It's beautiful and it's lovely to get all aspects of it from different angles. Did you need special permission to go backstage?

Brilliant colours, I love the children's intense eyes!
