Hoi An water puppet show – The unique folk art form
Although puppet-play is a popular form of art and is available in many countries around the world, water puppet is unique in Vietnam. Water puppetry is the art form that represents the wet rice civilization of Vietnam, which was born at the same time with the formation of Dai Viet culture.
Nowadays, the advent of many new types of modern commercial art have caused traditional art forms such as water puppet to gradually fade away. In order to contribute to the preservation and promotion of such a beautiful ethnic culture, Hoi An Culture – Sports Center has officially performed the program “Art of Water Puppet Hoi An” to serve citizens and visitors. This program hopes to bring this type of folk art closer to the public.
Water puppetry is often associated with the agricultural life of our people 1,000 years ago such as catching fishes, catching crabs, buffalo babies, plowing, transplanting, catching ducks, playing with children. Besides, there are also plays portraying typical cultural characteristics of Hoi An – Quang Nam such as Apsa Dance, Con Con legend. The Hoi An water puppet art program has many elaborately performances choreographed by well-trained, experienced artists with a painstaking investment in content, puppet, sound, light. The program will help tourists really immerse in the art space embodying Vietnamese and Quang culture.
