Sixteen artists from Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater of Thai Duong Theater & Art Co. Ltd will stage water puppetry performances to serve audiences at the Mekong River’s traditional art festival from October 2 to 11 in Taiwan.  

Huynh Anh Tuan, director of the theater, said the festival attracts the participation of five countries Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar and each country will bring their unique art form to the festival.

Vietnamese artists are expected to show breathtaking water puppetry performances and lotus dances to promote Vietnamese cultural traits to international friends, Tuan noted.

Currently, the theater has emerged as one popular tourist attraction in HCMC, with around 500 tourists watching water puppetry shows on a daily basic. Over the years, the theater has performed at many international cultural exchange festivals.
