Hanoi Water Puppet Showfrom
Water Puppetry is a uniquely Vietnamese performing art. The “stage” is a pool of water set against the background of a red tiled communal house. Each puppetry play is not noisy with complicated philosophy but whispers with aspiration, and is sorrowful to open a horizon of feeling.

Hanoi Water Puppet Show
The brightly colored wooden puppets appear to walk on the water as they are skillfully maneuvered by the puppeteers behind the set. The tales are either about daily life in Vietnam or ancient cultural beliefs and the figures of animals and people seem to come to life as their stories are told. There are several acts within the show and each act is accompanied by songs and music performed on traditional musical instruments.
