Evening Water Puppet show


| May 15, 2020

Water Puppetry is a traditional and unique Vietnamese Art. This highly entertaining form of theatre uses the water surface as stage. Standing waist-deep in the water, the master puppeteers are hidden behind a bamboo screen. The technical virtuosity of the puppeteers is startling and, accompanied by traditional music, makes for an captivating experience. Hanoi city has a number of venues that offer daily performances in the early evening. Alternatively, visit the small village of Dao Thuc in the countryside outside Hanoi to enjoy an outdoor water puppet show, using the village as a backdrop.
