Glove Puppetry 布袋戲

Let’s come and experience the treasure of Taiwanese culture – hand puppet, which was once a traditional art form but now has been innovatively developed onto the big screen! At the 2024 NZ Taiwan Day event, we invite the Taiwanese Women’s Association of New Zealand to bring us the wonderful hand puppet shows of “Justice Bao and the Trial of the Stone” and “The Adventures of Sun Wukong and Zhu Bajie”. Hand puppet show is an ancient theatrical form that uses hand puppets to tell stories and has deep roots in religious beliefs and traditional culture. Now, you have the opportunity to experience this fascinating performance art in person! We welcome you to come and watch the show on site, and together appreciate the beauty of Taiwanese culture.
