Did you know?
For nearly 4,000 years puppetry has existed in several parts of the world, but did you know the culture of water puppetry is something unique to Vietnam? Water puppetry in Vietnam was first introduced by the Ly Dynasty over 1,000 years ago. Originally, shows were performed in the rice paddies of the Red River where puppeteers performed for local rice farmers. Today, the water puppet show at Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre in Hanoi attracts thousands of spectators each year and is the country’s most famous and traditionally significant entertainment show. Each performance represents village folklore and gives the audience an inside look to rural Vietnamese customs, culture, and traditions.
