Discover The Phu Quoc Water Puppet Show & Theater
Water puppetry originated in Vietnam and has a history in the 12th century. The puppets are controlled by the artists hands and are made of wood which have been lathered in a special lacquer to help prevent corrosion when they are subject to water. The puppets dance on a stage of water, much like how it was done in the old days. The dance is coordinated to traditional Vietnamese folk music and the stories that are told are those that depict local village life.
