Shadow Puppet Theatre

http://www.xip.fi/atd/china/shadow-and-puppet-theatre.html

My friends and I are always impressed with shadow puppet theatre — or shadow play, as we call it. I think it is an astounding form of art in which a lot of effort should be given, not only in the puppets but also in the actions (which should reflect the personality of a character), the music, and the story. Our country’s development was cut short by the arrival of the Spanish friars and their friends so the shadow theatre was not able to develop (as compared to our neighbours) but cultural organizations are adapting the discipline to share stories and organize the masses. 🙂
