Weekend, where to go
Have you got plans for the Spring Festival holiday? I want a break from my mobile phone. I want to do something that has been absent in my list for such a long time, that I almost forgot how festive, dramatic and eye-arresting it is. I want to watch a traditional puppet play. You may think it too old fashioned. The performance is not strange to me who hail from Fujian province. I enjoyed watching two time-honored shows in my childhood, the glove puppet play originated from Zhangzhou and the marionette play of Quanzhou. Puppets were once used as a ceremonial tool in witchcraft but gradually, the integration of puppet manipulating and local operas made the show evolving into a jolly program in festive celebrations and a representation of intangible cultural heritage. Like performers of traditional operas, puppet figures also wear different facial colors to indicate different personalities. And who wouldn't say these vivid faces actually reflect the rich inner side of ourselves?

This is a picture of a traditional puppet play.

Some details about the puppet play.
