Magic of Asian Puppets

Asian theatre puppets are an expression of the richness of Asia’s performing arts. The over 100 string, rod, hand and shadow puppets featured on this exhibition have survived the centuries, during which the puppet theatre has been a veritable living encyclopaedia of Asian life and culture.

This exhibition will take you on an imaginative journey through a vast and fascinating continent. It displays amazing Asian craftsmanship and creativity featuring unique puppets and artefacts from Asian traditions and countries including Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam and is expected to be appreciated by Asian art connoisseurs,  adults and children alike.
