Waterpuppet show

Back in April I was able to chaperone the field trip with the drama and choir classes to a water puppet show! This is a traditional form of art in Vietnam, originating from Hanoi in the north.

We went to the water puppet theater that is right next door to the Saigon Zoo and Botanic Gardens...


Most of the pieces are stories of cultural legends/folktales or depicting national history...

My favorite piece was the dance of the water fairies!...

The artists came out at the end of for a bow!

And two of them even stayed for a bit to answer our questions and tell us more about this art form in Vietnam.
